    I have a pair, I love them.
    Well made, very very Italian.

    Mine are olive green monk straps.

    very well made indeed, very thick soles, almost all Goodyear construction

    the shoe store in Portofino had the entire selection this summer when I was there and many were outstanding

    Captures my thoughts exactly. Have two pairs, from Skyvalet - a three eyelet derby with a punched toe medallion and a loafer with a high vamp. Very well made, lots of antiquing. Light, comfortable, but surprisingly durable.

    That's nice to hear. Any comparison to more SF-popular shoemakers?

    I have a pair too and like them. Mine do not have thick soles and are more of a lightweight derby (very good for spring and summer)

    I don't have wide experience with them but they remind me of Bonora

    Last shapes are closest to Santoni, but I like them more than Santoni and find them very comfortable.

    Is this normal Santoni line or Santoni fam?

    Awesome looking shoes. It's a double monk, and a split-toe, but is somehow more than the sum of its parts.

    ^ Wow, those are very very attractive lasts. And the finishing on some is quite amazing.

    I took notice of Barrett shoes only a few days ago and still wonder if there's any European online-store that stocks them !?

    I'm especially fond of this particular pair...
