No mention of them on their website. I am looking forward to the St. Crispin's visit...
Birthday fun!
I know this should just get thrown in the shoe porn thread, but I wanted it to highlight Leffot, a real treasure for shoe lovers. I went this past Saturday, empowered by my wife to select a birthday present. Came away with the following. Steven was great to work with. Has a very nice selection of EG (I was very tempted by the Perth on the 82, Southwold 888 and a Westminster double monk. Nice assortment of G&G, though most in the TG73 sharp...
