Fortunately for me, I hadn’t yet commissioned anything at the time. But I did travel all the way from Dubai to see him in Milan for a fitting and perhaps a factory tour for bespoke shoes. After many text/email exchanges setting up the appointment, he stood me up at his office on a winter day in January in Milan without as much as a decent apology.
I called him out on here when another SF member based in Toronto brought up a similar incident. I had intended to let the matter off before that. Marco reaches out to me and asked me to retract my position on this board which I did after promises by him to make amends.
He then promptly disappeared and that was the end of it.
The man is no gentleman. His behavior is a stain on the legacy of Ricardo Bestetti whom I gather was a true gentleman.
