    They look more like Mantellassi or Santoni to my eye.

    They are made by Santoni. Does nobody read the earlier post. Talk about blind and forgetful.

    Borrelli,with all their commitment to quality seems to be fond of this "apple green".I actually have bought Borrelli $250. (similar to the shoes)green calfskin belts from Filene's Basement for a mere $12.00,because nobody could stomach them.They started out at 75.00,and with the wonder of the automatic reduction plan,I waited til they were about to be donated to charity,then bought 2 .They actually look great with khaki jeans in the Summer.

    These would work great with the suit I am getting made with suit fabric + Lavender FC shirt + brownish etro/missoni tie. Too bad they are not in my size.

    Roy,

    Nice. Berluti?

    A question about the aggressive antiquing I have recently encounters on Berluti and Albadejo. Will this last? Is it just layers of polish on the shoe that will be lost over time?

    No, Mischa Bergshoeff.

    A Dutch Bespoke Shoemaker. Probably the only one left in our country.

    Roy,

    Nice. That's an interesting effect on the leather.

    But not for me. I'm just gonna admire them from afar...

    So am I, I took them from his website.

    I am actually thinking about purchasing some Berluti-like shoes there. But in a more 'normal' color. I am not particularly fond of the green, but I thought the shoe in itself was nicely done.

    I'm going way out on a limb here, contradicting Rider, but slight model and labeling differences aside, those shoes are identical down to the tiniest detail to two pairs of StefanoBi Norvegese shoes I recently sold: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....5536377 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....5800650 Even down to the exact same placement/size/writing style of the handwriting on the lining. They look a lot like some of the Harris shoes I have seen, but precisely and exactly the same as the Stefanobi's.

    Niener, niener. Andrew agress with me. That has to count for something. I'll grow up now...

    Marc, I wouldn't be surprised if Santoni made all the shoes for the Australian market; however, there is a good chance these shoes were procured for an American or European point of sale which might account for a difference in manufacturer. I'm sure RIDER could insert an informative piece on the subject.

    A few years ago,I commissioned a pair of green suede shoes from a London bootmaker. His remark at the time was " we haven't made any green shoes for anyone since Robin Hood" should have told me I had made a mistake, I persisted . I am sill a loyal customer, even though they indulged a foolish idea of mine. It is a great story to tell my friends; but I recomend against green shoes.

    Yes, I know.


    As far as I am aware, Santoni does not do contract work.
