I didn't realize that they were hand-lasted and hand-welted, that is good to know. Thanks for the clarification.they are hand-lasted and hand-welted in Italy so construction alone is more expensive... also i suspect with the volumes done at Carmina and Alden they get a far better price for the leather.
Carmina's are a different offering... I believe Goodyear in Spain? I guess it is all a matter of preference but as the basic offering is vastly different, our production costs can never compete with theirs.
I believe most of our collection at Naked is theirs at full price. Different product.
