That's a useful find, Chris "Italia", and an interesting website. I had some thoughts about their shoes when perusing the site. First, I don't particularly like the way they square off the sole at the toe when the upper is rounded. But that's just personal preference; they're obviously wonderful shoes. Another observation: the picture of one of their Blake-stitched shoes should put to rest the myth that Blake-constructed shoes are insubstantial. Also, I found it interesting that they would describe what they claim to be a hand-welting process as "Goodyear" (which refers to the machine that attaches the welt to the insole/upper and to the outsole). I wonder whether their "Norvegese" construction is the real deal or just some decorative side-stitching on a Goodyear-welted shoe. Their lasts are very nice, aren't they! Sleek and stylish.

Is that a good thing?

Bonafe are excellent shoes. They also make Aubercy RTW and petite mesure (MTO).

Where does one buy those ropey Italian laces you see on these shoes and de Tomassos?

I like the bit of a spade sole too!
