You guys are killing me.
The more examples from Bontoni I see, the more I like the maker. That split-toe oxford is a first for me. An interesting mix, I never thought something like it would work -- and there it is.
VR have you tried em on before?
That's what got me.
When I see Bontoni's that have been worn for a while, I prefer derbys with cap toes or monks with cap toes. The cap and the extra leather around the laces or buckles distracts you, in a good way, from the creases in the leather. The one piece shoes seem to highlight creases.
Found these on [email protected]
Now those are just ridiculous. I think we may have a winner
I saw these on Tassels fb page. The boots and the navy double monks are sickkkk
justinkapur, no I haven't. These pictures got me interested, though. Too many Italian makers plant too many gimmicks and far too pointy toes, Bontoni is different. Enough flair to make them stand out, with a construction to boot.
The photo shows one of the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen. Are they RTW or bespoke? May I ask the model, how much do they cost and where to buy them?
Thank you! The model is Made-to-Measure De La Ville five eyelet plain whole-cut in Giolo Bosco color. I just described what I wanted in terms of shape, color, patina, with the size, and Lewis guided me to the masterpiece you see. For example, knowing his shoes, he recommended with my foot that I go with a wider width at the regular size to fit my foot. And trust me, the pictures don't do it justice. As a wholecut, I find it rivals Berluti. The price is over $1k, but well worth the price for a made-to-order shoe. I can't tell you how pleased I am with this experience, and I'll be back for more. I'll pm you with information to get you going. All in all - the product, the service, the communication - a GREAT experience with Bontoni.
Love those limewashed tan ones.
my start down the bontoni cash dump trail . . . . offering apologies in advance for the crap photos
the left one to be delivered tomorrow . . . .
next up - same makeup, different color
Left one looks familiar What are you gonna do to the bottom one? The color on the boots is what I would get!
open to ideas but right now i'm thinking a dark tan / loden tan suede with the same chocolate trim would be a clean look.
Medium to light brown with chocolate trim would be nice. I think it seems a little like a saddle shoe.
