As movies such as The Kingsmen and the flamboyant style of Conor McGregor hits the limelight recently, Dandyism seems to be having a much-needed revival. With that in mind, one department of a gentleman’s wardrobe for which one may overlook, is footwear. With that in mind, we visited the atelier of Antonio Meccariello on a recent trip to Southern Italy.
Lately on a short trip to Naples, I was invited to drop by his workshop located just north of Naples, where I was lucky enough to pick up a pair from the master bootmakers Argentum RTW line.
Everything is done by hand at Meccariello. Being a purest, the artist offers last minute alterations on orders if you visit the workshop, or you can opt for the less rustic method and order from his website.
