Weston Berluti Corthay Aubercy La Cordonnerie Anglaise Allen Edmonds Alden Johnson & Murphy Albaladejo Yanko Bally Eduard Meier Balint Materna Vass I got these names from the "Mens Ex" magazine cover. I added Vass to the mix. Many names I am generally familiar with, while some I have never heard of. How would you rank these makers in terms of construction quality? How do you rank the companies which make RTW shoes? How do you rank the companies which make custom shoes? How would you rank the makers who do private-label work? I would want shoes that are Goodyear-welted.
