Casa Fagliano - The Polo sport bespoke bootmakers

If one says Argentina, you think of Tango, and will never give thought to bespoke shoe and boot making for the equestrian polo sport. Buenos Aires harbours one of the greatest bespoke polo boot makers who have been in the same workshop since 1892. The Fagliano family (fourth and fifth generation) provides and makes polo boots for the Royalty (HRH Prince Charles and the sons), Aristocracy and the rich. As far as I know, the only shoe artisan family that can turn back orders from the Royalty and Aristocracy. Well done. 
These boots do not come cheap.
