RIDER, I seem to recall you were not happy with one of Moreschi's Tirolese constructed shoe at one point. Have they resolved their issues?
Well, from a purists standpoint - no. From my viewpoint, it would be much better if the chain stitch were hooked into the midsole like Borgioli. In Moreschi's 'Tirolese' construction, the stitch is merely decorative with the uppers are tied into the midsole by a lockstitch under the chain stitch. Frankly, Borgioli's Norwegian's are much better made, at a lower retail - particularly at the sale promotions now at the shop. How's that for honesty. Anyway, when I did a Moreschi trunk show after Thanksgiving, these shoes were by far the most popular. I seem to have done something wrong that the other models are not showing up, but I thought I should show them on the site, as the customers like them. The finish is outstanding, the lasts nice. My only problem is that I feel some customers might think they are made as well as the Borgioli shoes I carry, when they are not. But that does not mean they are bad shoes - just that the Borgioli are a great buy.
