1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    To whom are these brands unknown? None of the makers mentioned are foreign to SF. They have all been discussed in threads to varying degrees

    Same quality or better than Brioni is a pretty high standard.

    I guess you could call this, brands unappreciated by the plebes.

    I feel like if I tell you, they won't be unknown anymore. PM me if you can promise to keep quiet.

    Same or better quality than Brioni is a bit tough. The only ones that comes to mind is La Vera and maybe St. Andrew (old RLPL). Attolini/Oxxford/Kiton also but they are all pretty much well known now. Here are some brands that are unknown and are slightly below Brioni level:

    Partenopea
    Belvest
    Caruso
    Isaia (pretty well known now, in NYC at least)
    Borrelli (see above)


    These are pretty well known on SF though but I'm assuming you mean to the general public.

    Higher than Brioni standards is pretty tough and all brands mentioned have been discussed in some way. I would add 9.2 from Italy(they donĀ“t even have a website, but just a shop in Padova and Verona). Maybe Delvaux from Belgium?

    I'm wearing their 002 boots today. I like them a lot. I have never handled their suede.
