OK, I assume you`re coming to Tokyo. If so, Otsuka, o.e., Yoshinoya, Regal, Ogasawara Shoes, Clematis and Yohei Fukuda are the better known bespoke makers that also offer MTM shoes that requires no extra fitting session, and also allows lasts to be modified. (aside Yanagimachi and Guild of Crafts)Otsuka is probably the best deal (at around ¥157K for full handmade MTO)Clematis (¥163K~ for machine bottomed, and ¥253K for full handmade), is located in Ginza (like Guild). ...
TYE Shoemaker Bespoke Samples To the joy of his fans (myself included), Ohno san (TYE Shoemaker) has finally made some bespoke sample shoes for everyone to see! (all other shoes featured here or on his website are commissioned shoes) Here is a stunner: Single monk in cognac calf and a 18K WG original buckle TYE Shoemaker Diary
Fantastic!! A big congrats to your bespoke endeavour with Marquess. A pair of blind brogues in their chiseled last will be gorgeous. I also love their ocher calf, and how they finish it so immaculately.
Yeah sizing is very limited. I think they only made a small run to test the market.Considering that their parent company makes most of the Sketchers shoes in the world, it`s hard to imagine that Goodyear Studio / Turnright is being tied up with a string budget though...
Try emailing them, I believe they are OK with English (the website is in English after all) info@galleryofauthentic.jp
and I also recall (from just a while ago) that the entire Bespoke team of Stefano Bemer is made up of Japanese. (may be not true as of today)
Great job for making such fascinating video! Thanks for sharing
You have great taste Gianni!That model/style is his homage to a certain well known Parisan shoemaker that has closed down some time ago.
How about some Bespoke news from Tokyo! Starting this weekend (5/24), Munich based shoemaker Ryota Hayafuji will be taking orders at Old Hat Tokyo (5/24~5/26) and Osaka (5/30~6/1). Theres also gonna be a welcoming party (open for anyone) for Hayafuji-san on Saturday night at a Harajuku restaurant. I attended the party last time, and had a wonderful time chatting with him, as well as some big names in Japanese shoe industry. Highly recommended! Old Hat...
That`s the right attitude!
