    Haha no, we all know for sure that those guys hang out on SF. His name is Erik and is from my hometown Gothenburg, he has a nice instagram account @erikged . Showed some own pics of his Meccariello today.



    Since the whole purpose of a trial shoe is to try out the adjusted lasts fit, this is pretty given.

    The fourth picture in the first post of this thread has a split toe model:

    I thought these on Antonio's instagram deserved a special mention. I haven't seen much textured and smooth leathers combos from him but it looks amazing. You can also clearly see how finely the welt is cut if requested for.

    They are beautiful! I love the contrast from the dark grain and the close cut welt!

    What are the experiences of people who have ordered bespoke and MTM shoes directly from Antonio, as far as his commitment to delivery times? When he says the shoes will be delivered by a certain date does it happen then or is it delayed by one month or several months?

    I met Antonio in Naples. He's a very nice guy and the shoes are really great...For delivery times i can not comment but i had no issue. If you discuss with him i am sure he can arrange if it's possible. Also keep in mind that if you send him an e-mail he replies very quickly (which is unusual in Naples...)
    So far i received only test shoes but they are far better than my Vass shoes or CJ shoes.
    I ordered MTM but Antonio took my measurements so they fit really great.

    He seems to keep to time. But then I've never been in a rush, so can't really comment. He did let me know when he envisaged a delay due to his new baby.

    if you mean like eg's dover yes i believe he calls it infracarne but costs moar
    his standard line is nao moar refined than a few years back here are a few delicious sauce from his blog of his standard make http://meccariello-calzoleria.tumbl...ccariello-standard-line-derby-boots-made-with http://meccariello-calzoleria.tumbl...cariello-standard-line-3-monkstraps-made-on-a http://meccariello-calzoleria.tumblr.com/post/107110146395/meccariello-standard-made-to-measure-line http://meccariello-calzoleria.tumbl...meccariello-standard-line-two-eyelet-derby-in http://meccariello-calzoleria.tumbl...standard-line-meccariello-a-brown-annonay-box http://meccariello-calzoleria.tumbl...uble-monkstrap-shoe-in-black-calfskin-this-is http://meccariello-calzoleria.tumbl...ariello-standard-line-hand-coloured-navy-blue teh welt is still showing when teh shoe is viewed from the top but it is not as large and thick as before
    this is an aurum i believe so teh welt is cut extremly close and 'barely peeking' when viewed from teh top but i think it is only available for aurum

    He has always met the quoted time. That said the quoted time changes considerably depending on how busy he is and how complex the shoe, so I'd ask up front.

    that sounds very fair. I think he deserves respect just to actually tell how long it should take based on how busy he is instead of most who just tell a general time range, even though that time can vary greatly.

    His shoes are worth to wait

    Agreed. I believe he is also very flexible in special cases.

    That is what I have heard, but it is great to hear that he is so willing to work out whatever he can to either get the shoes done on time or to let the customer know a reasonably expected time to wait.
