They're beautiful, aren't they. However, be careful with sizing. The JLobb 7000 last is very long, and my experience has been that I've had to go down a half-size with them. I normally take a 9UK. However, my JLobb Westminsters on the 7000 last are 8.5 UK, and even at that, they are slightly on the large side.

Yeah, they're gorgeous. Even with the generous sizing of the 7000 last, though, I won't be bidding. I wear a UK 11 on Lobb's 8695 last, so I don't think I could shoehorn my feet into a UK size 10. I hope a forum member snags them, though.

NIB oldstock Nettletons-made in the USA

Here are some threads about Nettleton.

One pair says made in Italy. The Bostonian shoes are also made in the USA. The paperwork that comes with the shoes says "Send Inquires to A. E. Nettleton Syracuse New York...The Co. was in business since 1878...but I honestly don't know if they still are. Hope this information helps. Thanks, Darlene



Also, if someone is interested, please outbid me on these (my bid is the minimum). The last thing I need right now is new shoes...

nerdykarim, you've seen my posts about Nettleton shoes; you could do worse than picking up a new pair on ebay for $15.

I hope some size 8 will buy those Nettletons. They really are fine shoes.

I'd buy the brogues if only they were larger.

There are many pairs of Moreschi monks on eBay from grapevinehill. They will probably all go for around 100 a pair. The tan color is pretty light, but interesting.

Here's a pair of the tan ones. There looks to be several full size runs.

Are Moreschi's any good?

I think so. They're a mid-level Italian shoe roughly comparable to the mid-line Sutor Mantellassis and Santonis. Of those I've seen locally, the slip-ons are all Blake-stitched, and a couple of the more expensive lace-ups had some pretty over-the-top Norvegese double-braided stitching. They are prototypically Italianate, which means that some models are a little far out, but they seem to me to be of very good quality. Sierra Trading Post always seems to have some Moreschi shoes and belts at good prices. As for those tan monks from Grapevinehill, I really dislike the color, but otherwise they seem like a good-quality shoe. Hard to tell about the construction, although I suspect they're Blake-stitched. For $100 (as suggested by Billiebob as their likely eventual selling price), they'd be a great buy if you can stand the color.

SANTONI HAND-WELTED
Not my size

Those are the famous Bentivegna wholecuts, the best shoe Santoni makes. Retail is more like $1550. That is an extraordinary deal.
