http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws....75&rd=1 I love the look. But its bit pricey for me. Would C&J Handgrade be better buy than this?

Very nice. Have you watched eclass229's eBay store. They seem to carry mostly Zegna, located in Toronto and they do carry Zegna shoes although I don't recall seeing any Napoli Couture.

I like the look, too, and I've seen the shoes in person (in black). They're nice shoes -- they're the more recent Ferragamo collaboration, not the Sutor Mantellassi-made ones of a few years ago, but they're nice shoes. The problem is that the retail price on those shoes at the beginning of the year was $495 (it may have gone up since to around $550), so a starting price of $478 doesn't seem that reasonable to me.

If the shoes are made by Ferragamo, Would they be par with Ferragamo Tramezza models?

Remember that Ferragamo doesn't have its own production facilities. My understanding is that all Ferragamo shoes are contracted out. I'm not exactly sure what the nature of the Zegna-Ferragamo collaboration is and who contributes what. That having been said, the Ferragamo Tramezza shoes are all welted. The black Zegna monkstraps that I have seen that appear to be identical to those pictured in the auction were Blake-constructed. I have seen some welted shoes at the Zegna store in Manhattan, but not in this model and never anywhere other than the Zegna store in Manhattan. I'm pretty sure that these shoes are Blake-constructed.

They look very nice. The only problem I've encounterd, is preventing a shoe of that color getting darker, as time progress....

If you're interested in Napoli couture shoes, check out your local NM. Last time I was there, they had many on sale...IIRC they were down to $399 with an addl 25% off.

Definitely over-priced. Barneys marks down their Zegna Couture shoes (exact same soles and box) second time to $269 from $515. The first mark down was to $399.
