    Supposedly there is a 33% off sale at Nordstrom on these shoes on Dec 26th. I have a $100 giftcard too, so it would be $318. But i have read some users had issues with Saphir polish cream removing the original polish of the shoes.

    those are fams not the regular line. aniline leather will not be affected

    Those would fall in the Santoni regular (or classic) category. I still say they are worth $418 (although not sure where they are listed for that price), although probably not worth $625. Beautiful shoes.


    Those are not from the classic collection. Shoes from the classic collection made much better than those. These below are from the classic collection:

    How does Santoni shoes rank against other brands such as Bruno Magli or Ferragamo? Is Santoni a well made shoe? I like the style but have not tried on the shoe to see if it is comfortable.

    going back to your question- the Santoni FAMs are very beautiful shoes, while the orange lined are subject to your preference since they're kinda fashion forward.

    Are you sure they are FAMs? They don't have the normal FAM sock lining. I still think they might be from the classic collection, just not cordovan ones like the one pictured above.

    Your are right, they are from the classic collection. There is a wide range of styles in the classic collection. That collection retails from $335 to $1400. Here's another store's ad:

    Sorry to bump an old thread but didn't want to post a new one.

    Does anyone know which line of Santoni's these are and how the quality is?

    Apparently the retail is 900.

    AFAIK Santoni for Dunhill only come in two varieties: true FAMs and Limited Eds.

    I have a pair of the first and been equivocating about buying a pair of the second when I got derailed by a pair of Zegna couture XXX that looked even better (oh but the price: "the horror, the horror")

    Lower class UK SF members who may not be out rioting tonight please check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_of_Darkness- :D

    (I don't include US SF members because in the US everyone thinks they are middle class and that if they work really really hard they will become rich :slayer:) UK members know better, i.e, you actually need to do some stealing


    Changing subject


    I am happy to announce that from experience the difference between Ferragamo's top 'Lavorazione Originale' and their 'Tramezza' is quite narrow. Unfortunately that is now reflected in the narrowing of price diff too.

    Top LOs kill C&J benchgrades everyday. (Note this is from someone that is offering a C&J benchgrades for sale).

    But I fear that if I put LOs for sale here I would get a pittance compared with the C&Js

    As I said in my bally scribe thread- SFers are loosing out on the pearls because they are focusing on the pork menu offered here

    I believe you have that backwards regarding Ferragamo - is not Tramezza the top line and Lavorazione Originale the next line below Tramezza? Judging from the 'Orginales' I have on my feet at the moment - and the price I paid for them (about $400 discounted) I'm pretty sure that's the case.

    Do not shame yourself in public dear friend

    When I say top LOs I mean the best LOs. There is a large price/quality diff between LOs of 'lowish' quality and those of 'high' quality

    . Sure in the official pyramid Tramezza is still the apex but top LOs are very close, and when you look at some styles, you are clearly better going LO than Tramezza

    Not sure why I've shamed myself......nor am I too happy about your suggestion that I have.

    However, I do appreciate the clarification.

    Thank you.
