MEN`S EX comes in Japanese only. I`ve been a loyal reader for some years, but I predict THE RAKE Japan to quickly overtake the title as the best Japanese menswear magazine. RAKE Japan`s editor-in-chief Matsuo-san used to be Men`s EX`s editor in chief.RAKE Japan will be posting an article on 10-Best Japanese Shoemakers in the next edition (on sale later this month). I`ve been told the article will also appear on the English counterparts. Can`t wait!
How fascinating! A MEN`S EX booth at PITTI!! Men`s EX FB

Make sure you check the prices from the link I posted above. Lazy-man oxford (side elastics) go for 146K JPYLllma leather has an up-charge, forgot how much. For trees, Spigola offers several: Off the shelf generic LCA trees, 3 piece lasted trees (like my llama shoes above), and a premium lightweight lasted trees (from the bottom picture by t Armoury).
Check out Spigola`s pricing pagehttp://www.spigola.jp/#/news140401Price is 123000 and up~ now. They are closed on Wednesday.
Great photos B-M!!
Looks spectacular. Almond Freudenberg has an aged chestnut leather feel to me. Congrats with your new Marquess!
His supplier told him that, unlike typical patent leather, this old patent leather needs to be maintained like regular leather with creams and what not.
Spotted this beauty at my recent trip to Marquess accompanying a friend. Bespoke Side Elastics in Patent Leather Well this vintage patent leather is supposed to be something, it really looked like a well polished calfskin. On a side note, I was invited to join a dinner with 5 other Marquess aficionados that night (yes they all had Marquess on their feet....scary) Felt like an initiation to the club
