I'd imagine whoever makes Zegna's shoes.

I'm assuming since all of his clothing is made by Zegna that whoever handles their leather goods and shoes would also do it for Tom as well.

Avarice, why not ask them? They note pretty much everywhere that Zegna makes their suits, don't see why they would be hesitant to reveal the shoe maker. Also, I'm for your Tom Ford expedition, but you keep asking here about his stuff, for the most part people here don't really like the stuff, you go out and get it anyway and then you start another Tom Ford thread. If you like the stuff, just buy it.

I will ask them about the shoes - I forgot to today.

I like discussing clothing (not everyone here hates TF) and I suppose I like to share what is on my mind.

Some people learn via questions & discussions (like me)

Talking to someone today who has a pair of Tom Ford shoes - says he'd never buy them again - overpriced rubbish! I have no first hand knowledge but am not surprised by his experience.

You have an interesting alias, I suggest you send a private message to user connemarra to talk about it.

From the multiple discussions we've had, it's painfully clear that the only real reason to buy TF is if you want the TF look. We've established that you could find equal or better quality tailored clothing, shoes, accessories, whatever, for less money, but it would not match the TF aesthetic. So, does it matter who makes the shoes? If you want high quality and attractive shoes, order CJ from plal for 400 bucks, order some EGs from GVH for 700 bucks, etc. If you want TF shoes, the quality and fit shouldn't matter so much- ultimately, only his shoes will match the aesthetic you're after, even if the quality may not merit such a high price.

I stopped by NM today to see if they could pry some cash away from me. I tried the T.F. shoes...WTF; $1800 clams? I like the last but that's where it ended.

Sorry to bump up any mention of TF and OP.
