    I actually have a pair of the Cole Haan-Edward Greens. Mine are a penny loafer in the grey suede. They're killer.
    I expect a pic of these....

    Will do tonight Bill. They are in what EG called "panther" grey suede and have some cool detailing.

    I'm considering a StefanoBi shoe (not the clunky designs) purchase from Vacca; phoned the NYC store recently and was told MTM is offered ...


    Can someone comment on construction and quality?

    Vacca is grossly overpriced for Stefanobi; buy some in France next time you're over for about half as much. Stefanobi is much more expensive in the US than in Europe.

    Could you comment on quality?

    I understand S. Lattanzi is among, if not the best RTW, but where does StefanoBi fit in the shoe Hierarchy?

    Crockett & Jones
    Current: Brooks Bros./Peal, Ralph Lauren (some said it's Handgrade, some said it's between HG and Benchgrade), Poulsen Skone/Dunhill, New & Lingwood.
    Past: Tom James (both HG & BG), Wildsmith.


    No longer for Polo, except for the various Darlton models. According to Ron Rider, most of the English Polo shoes are now made by Sanders & Sanders.

    Formerly Mantellassi, at least for the Napoli Couture shoes. Zegna shoes are now the product of a joint venture between Zegna and Ferragamo called Zefer. See here.

    Jcusey, do you know anything about Sanders & Sanders? Their quality, lasts, leather...? I assume they are Goodyear welted and equal in quality to C&J Benchgrade or even Handgrade? Have you seen any S&S RL?
