I got caught looking at them and expressly told I couldn't have them. Well that and no one answered my sizing question, what's up with that, eh? frown.gif

They were shipped months after the other models because of a shortage of hatch grain calf hides at Horween. When they arrived, no burgundy liner... That was a mistake at the factory but whatcha gonna do? We're not going to send them to Northampton for that...

Ozzy - what sizing question? Who said you couldn't have them? confused.gif

I posted in the thread asking how they compared to U last size 42.5. My wife said I couldn't have them frown.gif

The bottom of my feet forgive. The part that counts looks great!

I don't normally like loafers, but those look great.

Only if you use a protective sleeve or if it's surrounded by a whole bunch of papers and documents.   The briefcase is rather deep so a laptop alone in there would not be particularly well secured.

I like Calabrese, but honestly, if you want to get something from NMWA that is better designed as a working briefcase, I would go with La Portegna: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/accessories/bags/sol-brown-carter-leather-briefcase.html#aboutmaker

 

The Calabrese is nominally called a briefcase, but at nearly 5" deep and without much internal structyre, it is, imo, really best used as an overnight or carryon bag.

I was in Paul Stuart and saw their rebadged version of the Calabrese boiled wool weekender bag.

Theirs was in this unattractive purple wool and black leather (Phineas Cole). I was carrying my blue wool/tan leather version. smile.gif

The La Portegna is a thing of beauty. drool.gif

I just picked up the navy La Portegna card holder as a gift. First time I have seen their work in person. Great price to craftsmanship value IMO.

Spain has an incredible history of leatherworking.  The only reason that Italy has such a great reputation is the remarkably successful "Made In Italy" campaign.  Spain, at that same period, had Franco, which was not as great for PR.

interesting tidbit thanks for sharing

I just received my first shipment from NMWA and I applaud the little touches that made the unboxing so pleasant. Apart from the product (an Esemplare sweater) which was excellent, I truly appreciated the packaging, the receipt envelope and the personal note from Greg. Well done and thank you!
