CLEMATIS: A Revisit Also dropped by Clematis Ginza for a dinner with friend Keitaro Takano. Among the best home-bred shoemakers in Japan, always amazed by his stitch work (he does 99% of all work by himself). Always fun to look through the sample shoes! Exotics are Clematis`s specialty. Hippo is by far the most popular Hide of some strange creature. Anyone know what this is? I think its related to armadillo? not sure Crazy stitching. Also notice the minuscule...
MISAWA & WORKSHOP: A Revisit Shoemaker and `Shoe Artist` Misawa Noriyuki impressed me thoroughly during my last visit, with how his bespoke shoes (especially the lovely brogues shoes) showcased his background as a shoemaker / instructor at GUILD, and as an apprentice at Materna, Vienna.

Lets hope for an English version soon (which is actually happening, so I've heard)

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
