    does anybody know the story behind this company? I heard ex-Sutor and they look like Sutor's but would like to confirm this

    I will email the NY store that carries them if nobody knows

    We proudly carry the full line of Scarpe Di Bianco custom footwear. Each shoe is beautifully hand-crafted in Italy to your individual specifications. Choose from over 30 styles including oxfords, bluchers, loafers, brogues, monk straps and ankle boots. Each style is available in more than three dozen leathers and a multitude of lasts, soles and other options. The extreme emphasis to detail is notable in the rich patina applied to the finished calf skin. The production is decidedly artisanal in nature, witnessed by the fact that no more than 25 pairs are produced per day. Your feet deserve a shoe this exceptional. (Michael Andrews Bespoke)

    Those double monks are gorgeous.


    Any idea on the pricing? Similar or more than Sutors?

    The monks definitely look interesting but the three eyelet and six eyelet shoes look like monsters.
