Thanks! Always great to know when fellow SF members visit us! Hope you visit back again (and please let me know!)
Can't promise anything to anyone (including the shoemakers) yet, but Murata-san at least shows interest in gaining more recognition overseas. We do have 4 Main-d'or bespoke samples (not including my 2 pairs) on display at store, including a new addition, this lovely brown semi-brogue oxfordHere are all the Main-d'or Round toes together. Most welcome for anyone to come see them!
My black pair was made from Zonta calf. Really really nice. While he sources his leather from a local dealer, he is extremely selective.
Haha, you're right! I mean English
Thanks for all the comments folks!!!Main-d'or Email: main.d.or2.13@gmail.comand yes, Unfortunately Murata san doesn't speak Japanese Englishand yes, Japanese have their own terms/vocabulary for shoemaking / shoe parts
Main-d'or Bespoke is ¥290,000 JPY. Hollowed shoe trees (or badger tail shoe trees) are extra ¥35,000. ¥325,000 comes out to under $2900 USD.2 trials. 2nd fitting shoes is fully wearable, and tried on for a month or more.His atelier is located seriously in the middle of nowhere. Plans are underway for him to do hold trunk shows at a renowned tailor in Ginza.
Just came back from Japan and from meeting with Murata-san aka Main-d'or for the delivery of my second pair, a black plain-toe derby. I was really satisfied with the round toe last for which Murata-san made my first pair (brown adelaide brogues oxford), so I was confident that it would look great on a simple, classic 'plain' toe. A lot of folks in the industry (in Japan) consider him one of the best, if not the best, maker around. His styling and last designs were more...
There are only 2 lasts (square and round?), but I also recall he can have them made in any width.
