On a made-to-order basis only! And by special request. Thought about adding this just for fun. Who knows, maybe some Russian Oligarch would buy a $20,000 + shoe shine trunk. (And that's just a guess - I have no idea how much this thing would cost to make.)
I know. The trunk is quite a piece. Had the pleasure of seeing it last weekend while visiting the Saphir Factory in France. Marc originally had it designed for trade shows, but it seems to have gotten stuck in his dressing room. Perhaps given that it's a little difficult to travel with! Pretty cool piece - can accommodate up to 40 pairs of shoes and everything you need to take care of them.
We've got some lambs hair brushes on the way... not from Japan, but certainly good enough to do the trick. And you'll actually be able to get your hand on these. Stay tuned...
I trust that they'll feel fantastic. You'd be surprised how these things disappear on your feet. Socks are meant to be very light weight - providing a nice barrier between foot and shoe without getting in the way.Thanks for posting!
If fact, yes. Just received Tartan Green and Light Grey. Very exciting, I know. If any additional requests, let me know. We still have some things yet to ship.
Seems like we're experiencing some trouble with the images...
The new Talarico umbrellas are fantastic. When I was in Naples in January, I really made Talarico Jr. dig and pull out some really interesting stuff. Even canabalized some umbrellas from his locked display cabinets. Many more interesting patterns, greater aray of canes, and more poly-cotton canopies. I really encourage you guys to check them out, if for nothing less than admire the craftsmanship. WE ALSO even has some shoehorns coming from Talarico using the same...
Pretty sure Ron is not doing as many patina projects given how crazy he has been with Saphir... but I'll see! Maybe he'll host a Shoe Shine Sunday and show us some patina work!
The Return of Shoe Shine Sunday! That's right, gentlemen. After a extended hiatus, Shoe Shine Sunday is returning and is going to be hosted our very own @RedDevil10. Between me, him, and any other guest hosts, Shoe Shine Sunday should become a permanent fixture of Style Forum. Here's how it works: every Sunday, The Hanger Project will post to this thread photographs of us shining a pair of shoes. Every week will be a different them; however, you're welcome to post...
Well, this is coming straight from the owner of Saphir, with whom I've spent considerable time personally. However, I'll be back at their factory in March and will be sure to specifically ask (again). It's on my list of questions. If you have any other specific questions, let me know -- I'll be sure to add them to my list and report back.
