1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    A staple, classic Black Cap Toe by Courtley & Sons. Brand new and Made in Italy. Marked as US Size 9 and run a little narrow so I would consider them a C.

    COURTLEY & SONS HISTORY


    Since beginning of 50’ Mario Corti, together with his brother Silvio, an expert shoe’s maker, as worked in a still famous shoes factory, decided to start manufacturing shoes for their small shop.It was 1955 when Corti brothers began their adventure. They opened a small shoes laboratory to satisfy the always greater shoes requests. Until 80’ years production was addressed above all to local requirements. At that time Silvio decided to follow the trade way, and engaged the management of the shop, while Mario and his sons, Aldo and Giancarlo, two young boys grew up among shoes, decided to dedicate their efforts to the “art” of manufacturing shoes. Aldo, stylist and models creator, Giancarlo accountant with a real talent for business, persuaded “daddy Mario” to follow export ways. As at that time English style was the most successful on international market, Giancarlo decided to create “Courtley & Sons” brand, Courtley as an English mispronounce of name Corti, to give to the brand an international importance. During following years “Courtley & Sons” became a men and women shoes line, of classical, smart and English taste; but with careful attention to lasts and finishing leather’s details, exclusive and typical of “hand made in Italy” product. Lot of years have passed and the experiences got, even negative, led Corti’s family to realise that few people can understand the never-ending problems and details that let the shoe-maker an “art”, not only a simply job.
