    How are those shoes?

    I have heard so much about these...

    Are they mostly handmade like St. Crispin or Vass or Lattanzi?

    or Hand guided with Machine made work; Edward Green or John Lobb?


    Some of the Branchini models are nice, but some are just uhh, well, not the best of tastes... Or looks...

    I have a couple of pairs. They are nice, but have heir own special shyle [​IMG]. I do not know whether they are more like the former group or the latter. I would imagine the former, but have never taken any of them apart.

    Matt, you have their top line, right?

    Those extensive sitching on the shoes? (sometimes a bit crazy, but it makes it look different than others...)

    How would you rank these with the shoes you currently have?

    I know you have several shoemakers, all are great... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have two pairs. One is norvegese (with all the stitching) and the other is goodyear. They are fine shoes. The norvegese boots I generally wear with jeans. The others I generally wear with cords.

    In fact, I own no shoemakers and I don't keep any of them in a small room in my house. I have shoes from some different makers and I like them all. I can't even try to rank the Branchini's as they are very different from my other shoes. I hope this helps, but I am almost sure it does not.

    I mean;

    you have new shoes (the ones you posted in your thread) Sick and amazing shoes btw...

    EG, Scafora, Bemer, even Lattanzi you have?

    I really envy some people here with all their money and their luxury. You are one of 'em. That Rubinacci sportsjacket (your old thread) is amazing, what a fine piece of work...
