    When Riccardo Bestetti was in Amsterdam last time for a trunkshow I gave my brother a pair of bespoke shoes for his birthday.

    The fitting was supposed to be yesterday. But we couldn't meet Riccardo at the show. So he was on his way to my house. Like a good Italian he called me when he was 40 minutes late. The person who was driving him had a flat tire.

    They were waiting at a petrol station nearby. So... We just had my brothers fitting right there:


    Keep us posted Roy. I have always liked your Bestetti shoes...and you keeping us updated.

    No problem [​IMG]

    My brother has chosen to go for a black sharkshin 3 eyelet derby with a round nose. For myself i'm working with Riccardo on two new pairs. A loafer in the style of the Berluti Warhol, but with kind of a round chisel toe instead of a square one.

    I also ordered a stingray wholecut. The piping, lining, laces, sole and shoetrees all will be made in a very deep purple colour. Riccardo calls it 'royal purple' and it's pretty close to black. So it won't really standout, just give it something that you really have to look at twice before you notice it. These probably won't be ready until september/october unfortunately.

    ^ [​IMG] iWant. Deets?

    Herring (Cheaney) Fencote? Or perhaps another Cheaney spec made on some other last that Andersons of Durham and Edwards of Manchester used to carry?

    They are made by Cheaney on the lovely 12319 last.

    Lovely indeed!

    The 12319 last does look nicer than the 11028 used on Herring's version. How's the sizing for that last? UK size + 1 = US size or is it only ½ size conversion?
