Moreschi NYC (53rd and Madison) has a 60% clearance on some of its stock. Goodyear Â cap-toes and wingtips are about $329 - would you consider this a good deal? BTW, they used to have a nice window display of a goodyear shoe cut across to reveal the inner workings. Very educational. I didn't see it today, though. Blake stitched shoes on sale are approx $250, if I remember correctly. Moreschi also has what it calls "Lavorazione Tirolese", which brings about images of mountain/hiking shoes, but the shoes themselves are of the squarish, lavishly-welted Italian kind, using what seems like butcher's twine for the stitching. Anyone familiar with this method? another addition to our collection of mysterious Italian shoe-making techniques... Also, I spoke with a Barney's salesperson today and he claimed that they intend to bring in a large selection of Berluti RTW in the coming fall. He also mentioned they'll feature a few other small new (for barney's) brands, but he couldn't recall any specific names.
