Isshy, those Ferres are awesome.
Particularly like the Magnannis.
perhaps 7 eyelets is the correct number for a shoe with quintuple stitching
PS, I quite like Magnanni. If I were forced to buy a Nordstrom-ish mall brand, I would have no problem with Magnanni.
I don't think there's any 'correct' number of eyelets, but 7 eyelets in that said shoes does look far more balanced than say, 3, 4 or 5 eyelets due to the 5-row stitching.
And 3 eyelet berluti wholecut look balanced as well, but could look off balance with if its 7 eyelets.
I was kidding, 7 eyelets is borderline stupid, but I might still wear those shoes.
At least it is an odd number. Things look better in odd numbers. Even boobs.

You guys thinking what I'm thinking?
your nicest pair, I think.
The term "Grail" is not to be used lightly. With the help of a SF member, I recently got a "Grail" of mine...
A BEAST of a shoe for today, but about average when compared to many of the Jurassic Period pairs from the 40's & 50's.
^^^ iconic shoes. Definitely on my grail list too. Tremendous construction - the v similar 'Golf' got almost a perfect score in Last for combination of looks-value for money, construction, design, material and comfort
Last time we saw a pair of these was i think Chikalot's -
