There are not many things more attractive than a nice burgundy leather and this shade might be the best that I have yet to come by. It’s vibrancy is second to none and from the looks of it, it appears to be a normal calfskin that has not had it’s color applied. It’s rare to find a burgundy so vivid like that, that is not done by patina and to say the least, I am quite jealous of it! One could not expect anything less though from a bespoke Anthony Delos shoe, could they?! And rumor has it that I he is going to be in London soon unless it has already passed but I am pretty sure that it was in the last week of Feb….might want to to check it out for those interested by calling the Berluti shop on Conduit st.
On another note, I just came back from my factory and while it was a tough trip, it was a good one as well. Dealing with factories is a constant battle and no matter how hard you try, you will never get 100% of anything. But I continue to strive to make my product the absolute best that it can be so that you all get the best bang for your buck. And that means that I do a lot of rejecting of pairs, which then means that my production gets delayed. It’s a constant merry-go-round but I prefer it to sending inadequate product out. So with a week or two now in delay, I am hoping to launch my ecommerce site by mid March at the absolute latest. Do stay tuned as there will be a few new exciting models and colorways.
I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend!
