    sutor is out of business and purchased by a korean company to my understanding.

    There is a company from ex-sutor workers in Florence.

    There's some sorta Korean company here making shoes supposedly from italy here in Korea. They're quite cheap for leather shoes in Korea, but the leather seems a bit hard and thin and the finishing has shit that shouldn't get past inspection. They do amazingly cheap mtm (sub 400 range).

    Think some of the gobbled up remains of Sutor might be in there?

    Just an update - I got back from Europe. They are still very much in business. They don't have a store in Rome, but they do have one in Florence where it is business as usual. They also have one in London, but the prices are an arm and a leg compared to their Florence location (since they charge pounds not euros)

    Did you check out the ex-sutor guy as well while you were in Florence? I think their suede is great value for money.
