Took a sneak peek into Gaziano & Girling new flagship store on the Saville Row before the opening... Tony in front of a wall of fitting shoes. Complete in D~G widths. wow The interior is very posh and lovely, I`ll post pics once it opens (in fact, it`s today!!)
Looking very sharp there! I will also be posting some pictures from my recent visit to Okuyama-san tooon a sidenote, I had a random encounter with add911 (the chap above) at a mall during my HK visit, a pleasant surprise
I went through the whole thread once before (for compiling the big link on my signature bar), and it is not a simple task. I commend you for the effort!
That sounds like a lot of fun and thnx for sharing! Those are some great looking Yamacho MTO!
More fun in Tokyo this weekend Il Quadrifoglio Bespoke Trunk Show @ World Footwear Gallery Kioicho 4/18~4/20 A pair of bi-colored croc loafers (and a matching belt) for a lucky customer
Oh really? I have not heard of that before. Fascinating, but not surprising
Foster`s `newer` bespoke samples that I saw weren`t shabby at all. Also, if it means anything, I know there are a couple of Japanese hands involved in the current Foster`s bespoke shoemaking operation I do dig the visual quality of Foster`s `fading` finish, and I find it`s purpose, which is to artificially make the bespoke shoes look as if it was sitting by the window for decades, to be highly amusing. I wonder if it was a customer, or a shoemaker, that came up with the idea
Haha, no they are really old samples. Not many makers could boast a collection of archival grade shoes like Foster, and they were a pleasure to look at. But yeah, some of them looked really beat up, and could use some proper shoe care / repair, IMO I think Foster bespoke goes for 3000 GBP (2500 GBP minus VAT, or 420K JPY)
This weekend seems to be particularly `Trunk Show heavy` in Tokyo. ISETAN JAPAN SENSES (Isetan),Spigola Bespoke Trunk Show (United Arrows), Miyagi Kogyo Trunk Show (WFG Harajuku), Shoe Republic Bespoke (Rifare Ebisu) etc... and then there is the ongoing Foster & Son Tokyo Trunk Show that I dropped by today. The show ends on 4/15 Lovely shoes. I especially like the V-front wingtip derby. Very `Foster`-like! and even more lovely, Ms. Emiko Matsuda I posted more shoes...
Some pictures I took @ Foster & Son Tokyo Trunk Show. Enjoy! My thanks to the Foster`s team for their hospitality!
