What do you wear this shoe with? Is it versatile?

    Dark brown tapering to black. Seems like it may not be as versatile as either a dark brown or black shoe. [​IMG] Also, any ideas about the maker? It's a Borrelli Luxury Vintage shoe, so is it Sutor? Or is it Santoni now? And... these run a size large, correct?

    They don't look nice [​IMG] . Maybe find another model using a similar two-tone concept.

    The Borelli Luxury Vintage series are definitely not Sutor or Santoni, they are of lesser quality.

    I dont think th etoe is black, rather just heaviliy burnished to a very dark brown. They should versatile.

    I am mildly interested in it, as I also don't think it looks great.

    No like either.

    It's a wishy-washy shoe. I hate wishy-washy.

    Yes, definitely, both of those shoes suck. And they seem to be cheaply made [​IMG] the suede looks cheap and the liner on the wingtip looks cheap. Anyway, they are ugly enough where the construction is not going to hurt or help them.

    Wear it with jeans. The dude with blowed-out spikes and untucked striped shirt can't really say sh*t to you.

    I can sort of see why the first shoe would be seen as ugly, but why the second? What don't you like about it?

    I like the shape of this one. Suede looks weird, can you try it on person and see how it is?

    I like the honey suede wingtips the best out of the available shoes... (not pictured in this thread, but available on the website)

    the nap looks different on the toe than on the vamp, the shape is meh and it just looks cheap. I mean, the whole cap toe thing is not really me but if you like the style, you can pretty much get the same shoe from any british maker from Loake on up. Don't go to the Italians for British style shoes and vice versa.
