I got to sample some scents from a new niche line that's being launched in June and I have to say, I was impressed. I smelled two roses, one in particular that I think will be very popular, and a lovely lavender that seems to be a modern take on Pour Un Homme. I don't think I can say more but if there's some press about the line I'll link to it.
Like banning some of the most interesting chords from music.
You're thinking of Willie's Shoe Service and/or Don Ville, both run by Raul Ojeda. He did some pretty poor work for me, so caveat emptor. I've had good work done at Willie's too, but that was when Willie was still there. If you just need a resole, I'm sure he's fine. If you have actual damage to be repaired, I'd suggest Pasquale's on San Vicente.

I want to endorse these suggestions, but I'll note that I'm suggesting the edt for Jicky, which is a nice summer scent. Rach probably is endorsing the perfume or edp, which is quite a bit different. You can get the same effect by wearing the edt and then pissing your pants.
Another scent you might like is Cartier Declaration. It's an easy scent to find and it's not expensive but it's both pleasant and unusual. It can fill in for your less loved Creeds as a summer scent.
I lived in EPA my junior year at Stanford, in 1988-89. I think it still had one of the highest murder rates in the country then, and the stereo was stolen out of my car once (that's one of those crimes that used to be ubiquitous and has largely disappeared) but I never felt unsafe there.
But the thing about the internet is you can scale your business so freaking big and fast - even if you're low cost and/or low margin, if you have a billion customers you're a giant business.

There are some interesting articles out there about WhatsApp you should read - it's clear they filled a need, especially for people communicating with friends and family overseas, and in markets with different pricing for messaging and data than you may have here. Those are smart guys and they built that business very prudently.
