    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks for the clarification. I know Linea Sartoria starts at the 3-4k range, so maybe Isaia level of quality?

    never odd or even
    

    Speaking about this suit specifically, the quality looks to be ~ Corneliani / Caruso mainline. I know LS suits were forum favorites some years back (Doc IIRC), but I think that was more because they were fully canvassed and sold new on the forum ~$250-$300.

    I don't believe the construction level ever approached Isaia.

    Ahh, apologies on the repost then. Didn't see it. Don't check this thread as religiously as some others.

    The wingtip pairs were tragically made to top quality but in corrected grain/binder and don't stand up from what I have seen of used pairs on eBay.

    yeah, all brand new. id love to know who the original owner is. also a pair of 11.5 shell C&J penny available from that seller. whoever was the original owner ordered over a 100 pairs of JL, EG, Alden, C&J, StC, etc and never wore them. Also, the reseller doenst have any of the original boxes but all the bags. i just wish original owner didnt like suede as much. I would say about 1/2 of those makeups are made of suede leather including alden indy & edward green danbury suede boots.

    Those Saint Crispin's look like some very old stock. The order number is in the 8000s and my shoe ordered last year was in the 10,000s.
