Bergdorf Goodman Men will be hosting a Bontoni trunk show from Sept. 11 to Sept. 13. It would be worth a trip just to see what a pair of multithousand-dollar bespoke shoes looks like in person. The Italian shoe company has been making shoes by hand with the same old-school craftsmanship for three generations. A pair of Bontoni's tapered dress shoes takes 13 weeks to make, and the company's bespoke shoes start at $4,500. Ready-to-wear shoes range from $1,000-$3,500. [T Magazine]
