I have a pair very similar to these, but with the 360 degree norvegese. I like Sutor VERY much, the finish on the shoes is excellent!

Very cool shoes, and the antiquing is beautiful (as we'd expect from RR).

What construction is it? They call it norvegese and it's testoni's top of the line (amedeo testoni)

http://www.testoni.com/ under A. Testoni, click on norwegian construction

Not too long ago, I hesitated JUST A SECOND when you put these in whiskey up for sale... GONE! SH*T! But, since we're about the same size (41), I'm waiting for you to get tired of some whiskey shell wingtips with the beautiful goyser!
