First we get a JM Weston, now Berluti....if Kiton opens up shop here too, my bonus check really won't last long.

Kind of strange considering NYC still dosen't have one; not that I care at all, cause I can't afford Berluti yet. Regardless, Barney's now has a nice Berluti shop that carries all the models.

Mph. With Barneys' lackadaisical service too. It appears that the Berlutis on offer at Barneys don't have the same options for ordering any patina or color one wants as at the Paris boutiques. That's the most individual and to me the best thing about Berluti. No fear, though, they will be opening a store in Manhattan this spring, as their letter told me. However, I can no longer afford their products. My income hasn't dropped, but the euro and the justified hypothesis that higher price = higher status means that Berluti is now pricing itself out of my league. I'm not paying $1500 for any RTW shoe.

Berluti RTW is a waste of money. Spalla (micheal alden) told me recently that Berluti RTW is entirely factory made (no handwork at all). He said you would be much better buying Edward Green for much less. Anyone who buys Berluti RTW is either rich, niave, or stupid.

Sooo.... as you've been saying for the last year you've wanted a pair, which are you?

l only want Berluti bespoke. But [because of the plane ticket and travelling involved (20 hours by plane)] l accept the fact that l will probably never own Berluti bespoke. Such a pity. Even still; to compensate, l can still make up for this by buying Edward Green at Sydney AUSTRALIA. P.S: l am a really bad traveller. Plane travel causes massive head aches. l can't travel. The picture below is Berluti bespoke: Brilliant. Forget about Berluti RTW.

I would say at least two of the three, actually...

Huh?? This makes no sense. Who cares if Edward Green is cheaper? So is Bostonian... does that mean I should buy those instead. Who cares if the shoes are entirely factory made either. Berluti falls into the same category of Dior Homme, and pretty much all Women's wear. Construction is meaningless (though, I'm sure on Berluti it is top notch)... it's all about looks and style. A category in which EG doesn't compare. No one is going to look at an EG shoe and be like, "wow, those are hot shoes." With Berluti, it's a bit different. You guys miss the point about product alot.

l care. So do many shoe buffs. Factory made = less shoe life. Handmade shoes last longer. Factory made Berluti RTW will not last the distance. l also find Handmade shoes to be much more comfortable than factory made shoes.

Would go pretty well with Kermit's suit, actually. Marc, for the sake of the bespoke craft you can't get on a plane and brave the headaches? Can't someone knock you out like they did with Mr T on the A-Team or someone's cat in the cargo hold? I imagine T4phage would volunteer. Given the abominable shite you often display as shoes I'm a bit surprised at this sudden shoe snobbery. Aren't those Artiolis you show so often also Blake stitched? Have you ever seen a Berluti in person?

I don't think he would know bespoke from an apple.
