Holy crap! Guess what's at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100... LINK
Picked up one of those the other week with the cursive script label.
Yea they are pretty crappy IMO....but sell to others on ebay well. If you are use to their mainline, or AE or anything halfway decent your not going to like the quality of the studio shoes. I had a pair litterly come unglued on me
I completely disagree. I have a pair of Ferragamo Studio black Chelsea boots in calf that are quickly becoming my favorite boots. They're super comfortable, Italian made, well constructed, and look awesome. I guess they run the gamut like anything else.
I sold a pair of Studios a few weeks ago for $30. Not much, but I won't complain.
Hucklecat, Here is my own personal study on this, cross-posted from the ebay thread. These numbers have improved even more since the second study.
Trust me it is worth the switch.
Thanks capn! I will do a trial next week and see what happens. As an accountant by trade I love stats like that.
Speaking of Ferragamos Tramezzas .......
Super super excited to brag about this pickup off ebay. Would I prefer a 7.5 vs an 8, yes (beggars cant be choosers), BUT glad the seller didnt really know what he had.
"glove leather Opera Pumps have been worn many times" = more like have been worn maybe a half dozen times and are in kick ass condition
"These shoes would have originally sold for around $350" = more like $600+ but whos counting.
Best part is with a thin pad and/or thick socks these are going to work amazing for the few times I wear a Tux!!! SOO excited right now.
Only things left for my Tux are a waistcoat (impossible impossible impossible to find) and a Grosgrain bow tie which I'll prob have to have custom made (and cost more then the damn shoes) as I want a pointed end one and no one seems to make a black grosgrain pointed end bow tie
PS - Anyone have a custom bow tie made before? If so any references would be great.
