    This is the G&G thread but I'm going to mention Carmina Shoemaker and Crockett & Jones in this price range.

    You want pointed English shoes, but REALLY pointed English shoes? Go to George Cox bootmakers. They have a New York retailer too. I don't know what they are called, but ask for their "Winkle-pickers" and you will see sharp pointies which make Dolce & Cabana or French shoe maker Corthay look quite blunted.

    Depending on how much you want to pay, you could go take a look at John Lobb of St James and see some of their creations.

    The Hermes John Lobb "Capital Collection" are quite pointed (see the "Beijing")

    What about these John Lobb Golf Shoes?

    Will you be playing golf at "Wind & Willows Golf Course" with Mr Toady any day soon?

    Here is a link to a feature on the d'Annunzio collection in Italian GQ:

    Look out for the shoes with the ******.

    After a hundred years, it might be a bit difficult to know which firm(s) of shoemakers did actually work for Signor d'Annunzio.

    +1. i have both, and i enjoy them both very much. while G&G is my favorite, there is no reason not to own other makers as well.

    they all have something unique to offer imo.

    For me G&G is not a everyday shoe you want to damage. While I use C&J for work and other stuff and G&G when I want to look extra nice :)

    Silvano Lattanzi has paid homage to Mr d'Annunzio's penile footwear fascinations with a model they call 'Mondieu!'

    That looks exactly like the brogue pattern on most toe caps!! I wonder whether Lattanzi's clicker was away when this pair was cut and he thought he would just go ahead and get the polisher to polish the brogue pattern on the quarters instead?

    Must have been a prick of a job to do!
