Berluti's (piercing Rob), wish they were mine
They are beautiful, and I am not suprised in the least bit that they are Berluti's. I have see many of Olga's designs, and they are very pleasing to the eye.

Nope, Pacific Tweed in Carmel. They might have them already, I haven't been in for a few months...

Boy, I hope they fit perfectly.  For that price, I could fly to Florence, get a pair custom made, and still have more than enough left over for gelato at Vivoli. koji
Seriously? That would mean that Kiton bespoke in Florence aren't appreciably more expensive than Vass in Budapest. OK, $300-$400 is nothing to scoff at, but neither are ~$1100 Kitons. Tom

Koji can speak for himself, but I don't think that that's what he means. There are reputably many small shops in Italy that are capable of turning out bespoke shoes for not a whole lot of money. The problem is, of course, finding them and in knowing that they're good at what they do. I don't think that Kiton makes any bespoke shoes, but even if they do, I doubt that they're much less expensive over there than they are here.

OK, thanks, that makes more sense.  It was the gelato in January that threw me   edit--Koji, can you throw any light on possible sources? Why not go for two sets of bespoke kicks at once this summer--damn the torpedos, to quote rojo's great grand uncle's pappy. Tom
