    I literally stumbled on them. Â They were on sale at 60% discount. Â The retail price was USD450. Â I got them for about USD180 per pair. Â They look like they came from the same last. Â I read with interest about the orange-sock vs tan-sock versions of Santoni fatte a mano on this forum. Â Mine are in orange-sock and though I am not a shoe expert, they don't look handmade. Just wanted to share my find. Â I think I am getting corrupted here. [​IMG]

    The wholecuts are particularly nice.... Great toebox.

    Which store did you pick up the shoes? Lane Crawford? What kind of sizes do they stock?

    I've been thinking about getting those wholecuts in chocolate brown.

    First i'm gonna purchase some Santoni Clubs though.

    Both Lane Crawford and Seibu in Pacific Place have them. I picked mine up from Seibu. Not many sizes left though.

    I like the wholecut better too, but I did not have any monkstrap, so I thought why not [​IMG] This last with elongated toebox works well with the more stylish designs like wholecut and monkstrap. It would not be as appropriate on a pair of captoe though. Just MHO.

    If there are any left, would you be willing to pick up a pair for me? (I need a US size 10.5).

    Do you know if Seibu accepts telephone orders?

    I have never done that before, but one can always try. I don't have their number though.

    Great pickup, last year I saw the exact same shoes on Seibu and they were 30% off only.

    I don't think the store accepted telephone orders, and it had no online site either.
