Thx gents. This was the Aurum round last.
These are two of my Meccariellos:
For comparison, here are my Bestetti almond-last Mavericks:
Nice, thanks for the pics. Is that the Mayfair last? Looks a bit sleeker in your pics than on his Tumblr, which I think is a good thing.
I also found these pics on his Tumblr from wayyy back...
This is more of what I'm looking for, but he doesn't identify the last in his Tumblr post. I guess it's easier to just ask him, but if anyone knows off the top of their heads, please give me a shout. Thanks.
Antonio's always been very responsive - I started with pictures with scribblings all over them to indicate exactly what I wanted. Definitely recommend giving him a shout with the picture(s) of what you want.
So, standard line is cheaper than GG RTW (~$1200)? I thought Antonio's stuff started around $1600 USD?
That's amazing. Makes my upcoming trip to Italy even more exciting.
Which last is this? 19040? All of these shoes look amazing!
Yeah, standard line starts at €650, which comes out to about a little under $700 right now.
Yeah its really good, just wish shipping wasn't €90
Looks great! I love the transition of brown shades plus the texture of the Adelaide part of the upper.
Sadly is the case with Italy.
not to mention that it is heavy with the box, shoes, shoe trees, and if there is shipping for the trial shoes. That is a lot of weight, so it actually makes some sense.
This looks like a Japanese-last I used for my aurum derbies...ask Antonio to reconfirm but I believe he calls it the "Habu" last.
Has anyone in the US had difficulty with wiring money to Antonio? I've tried to pay him via Transferwise and Ria; but, both services will not provide the transfer due to "security reasons".
I transferred today through my bank. They haven't said anything about it not going through.
But then I used my own bank, so YMMV
