…lly take nor give to the shoes but is always a nice touch and is appreciating in knowing that the brand takes pride in the appearance. You can see that no expense was sacrificed to give a good look to the presentation of the shoes. Taking out the shoes you notice a very vibrant and nice leather. It looks of good quality and smells of it too. The finishing was impeccable and it’s impressive to see fudge wheel work of that caliber on a shoe…

jack-erwin-jake

…ything else at $200 just looks like rubbish to me. Okay, so now for the pros and cons of the brand and let’s start with the pros. While I proclaim myself “The Shoe Snob” and am quite a brat when it comes to shoes, and therefore mainly write about ones that are +$500 that does not mean that I am an idiot that thinks that all shoes should cost that much.

…; and “Goodyear Welt” lines at select Nordstrom stores around the country, DT Seattle being one of them. Silvano Sassetti is also a gem in the rough, being a small factory in the Marche region of Italy and making shoes for the likes of Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren’s Purple or Black Label, Dolce & Gabbana as well as several others.

Shoe Pricing – From Cost of Production to Retail Price

Wearing Athletic Shoes With Suits – NOT OKAY!!

…galoshes don’t float your boat then at least wear some comfortable leather loafer with a rubber sole that at least could pass as a suitable shoe.
