So who made shoes for Kiton before Kiton set up its own shop?

I'm not certain. I would imagine previous Kiton shoes were made at the specific request of certain stores, and could have been sourced out to any reputable maker.

John Lobb's in 7.5 and they come with a "nice yellow bag" I'd ask for more pics to guarantee authenticity, but the bad pic will probably keep the price low and you might get a deal.

If you buy these "Gorgeous" Brioni's and wait till you are old to wear them you will miss your prime pimping years in these classics!

BTW: My revered Mom is a little old retired Jewish lady in a Ft. Lauderdale Condo. When I visit her, I can't tell you how many of her neighbors(the males that is) are wearing beauties like these! And I doubt many of her neighbors are Pimps or wear Brioni!

I will be watching this auction to see which astute Ebayer wins.

He claims they are "scuffed and shop worn" like that is a good thing.

My stable will just have to do without seeing me in those shoes when I collect. They will be for my retirement instead.

I am no expert on Kiton shoe but I think A Harris is right. Those Kiton from the same seller were made by someone else before Kiton set up its own shop. Take a look of pictures of 2 pairs of Kiton posted by vR, those were made by Kiton's own shop. I can tell from my untrained eyes the Kiton-made Kiton are far more superior than the ones made by someone else.
