BESTETTI AFTER PITTI

Mr. Marco Facchinetti

My friend Riccardo Bestetti surely, from the heavens, during the Pitti event, will be happy. His dream continues thanks to another friend of his: Marco Facchinetti whom, being already a Bestetti customer and now the owner, has been given a new future to the dream of Freccia, that is, to make the most beautiful shoes in the world. Probably, without Facchinetti, today the Bestetti shoes would not continue to be at the feet of the most demanding gentlemen in the world. The after Pitti event at the Caffè dell'Oro, at Ponte Vecchio, was a success.

Bespoke shoes

From the pictures, you can see that the best Asian buyers are going to the event, who were passionate about the quality and the clear identity of Bestetti even before buying. Just as there are no missing editors, men of communication who count and work on jobs from all over the world. Well, the Bestetti shoes are alive and are right now, according to me, the most desirable. The reason? The quality has remained intact. As well as finishes and patterns. Indeed, they have also improved. The top of the range continues to be the bespoke models, made entirely by hand, ordered through periodic, but continuous, trunk-shows that Marco Facchinetti holds everywhere around the world.

From New York to Tokyo. From London to Hong Kong. Bestetti does not only build bespoke shoes. He also produces ready-to-wear shoes, but with the same finish as the bespoke. The result? Everyone can be happy to wear Bestetti shoes. All the former employees of Bestetti are still working; not in Vigevano, however, but in Trezzano sul Naviglio, 15 minutes from the centre of Milan. So, dear Monsieur Bespoke, you have no more excuses: when you come to Milan, a jump in the new Bestetti seat is a must. I'm sure of one thing: your passion for elegance and the beauty of the shoe, when you return to your hotel after visiting Bestetti, will be even bigger.

Everyone can be happy to wear Bestetti shoes. All the former employees of Bestetti are still working;

Mr. Macchinetti, owner Bestetti, and Mr. Douglas.
