this was a trick question u fools

of course the first one to fall was true adonis (pride is the worst sin)

adonis read this. it wil be useful for you to regurgitate it later as if u know wtf u talking about:

no one that knows anything about quality shoes would even consider alden, or any other us brand

players like me wear Edward Green, John Lobb, Gaziano & Girling, Laslo Vass; plus the occasional Crockett & Jones as beater shoes. There are are some great santoni limited eds -that none of u ever saw- but they are too expensive. If you like italian go Zegna XXX couture,
now go google the names above

I have a few pairs of Santoni that are nothing special.  Alden is much higher quality as the leather is higher quality.  I restore high end leathers, I know what I am talking about moron.

But what was the trick?  You tricked us into thinking you didn't have any nice dress shoes, and you don't know what you're doing?

Your interests outside of bodybuilding are always surprising to me.  You really enjoy the finer things in life, don't you

Their work has been sloppy for a while now.  Some of their work is contracted out even outside of the factory in Marche.  Its not as hand-crafted as you think, even the limited edition.  One shoe will see many hands and will not be the work of just one or two.  

Their limited line is not the best by the way.  You can obtain a bespoke if you are willing to pay a bit more, but the quality will not be much different at all. (depending on what you ask for).  They do use aniline for most of their stuff, but their recent dye and polish jobs as seen on the current limited editions, are meant to cover for lack of grain that you would find in a JM Weston or Stefano Bemer. (where Daniel Day Lewis apprenticed apprenticed for 8 months a few years back)


But, if thats what you like, who am I to convince you differently.

I'm trying to figure out what's more disturbing.  Listening to 2 homos argue over who has the fanciest shoes, or actually paying 500 bucks for shoes.   Huh   Cheesy

if you can't afford a designer watch and cufflinks that cost more than the shoes then why even bother

Ah, thanks. You're right. They were only minor mentions, so I missed them.
