    Discussed ad nauseum, but : JL, EG, Kiton (if you are going by price), to name a few.

    Vass makes great shoes. I have three pairs from them, the oldest one will soon be 7 years. They seem to be harder wearing than any of my English shoes, although I have never had JL, EG or C&J. The best shoes I have ever had are by far my J. M. Weston chasseĀ“s. They are incredibly sturdy (and clunky) and the leather soles, from their own tannery seem much harder wearing than the Rendenbachs Vass uses.
    Another plus with the Westons: they have got much better breathability than all other shoes I have owned.

    J.M. Weston are one of the best and yet, they receive much less attention than other brands.
    JL, overrated.
    Berluti, over priced.
    EG, too British. :p

    My vote goes to G&G or Riccardo Freccia Bestetti - but Bestetti RTW can be incredibly hard to find. Di Bianco gets an honourable mention too
