Time to learn French. Strangely, I was just at that site. They have some great pictures there. Maybe we should make Ernest translate everything for us.

Same site as translated by Google. It's not perfect, but you can usually make out the point of the text.

If my memory serves me correctly, galuchat is French for "shagreen", which would relate to the type of leather rather than to the type of shoe. I must feature it in an upcoming culinary battle... Kyo no tema wa... GALUCHAT DESU........

I Agree : The history of Galuchat is Japanese then French... but the quite French name. Mrs Galuchat, father and wire, family of gainiers established quay of the Clock during the XVIIIème century, were first to find art to soften and put color the skins of dogfish and sharks. At that time, one furnishes with them the surtouts with watches, the lancet boxes, the cases with scissors and razors, etc.

Great shoemakers? None. Alden and Allen-Edmonds do produce good shoes, though. I believe that both are available in Europe, particularly the shell cordovan models, although they're much more expensive there than they are here.

Barney's in New York just brought in a number of Berluti models, and I have read that they're building a store somewhere in Midtown that's scheduled to open next year. Santoni has a store on Madison Avenue, and Santoni shoes are widely available throughout the US.
