Congrats with your shoes!I`ve seen the pics before, and those curvy sole pattern (not the marble) looks identical to the Japanese maker Il Quadrifoglio`sIs that something you requested? just curiousI think it looks fantastic
My good friend and shoeshiner extraordinary Ken Shibata has recently opened up his own shoeshine business called `Polish Made`
The `store` is actually a concession located inside a tailor shop `Yoshida Suits`, a set up similar to what Mr. FitzPatrick had at G&H London.
Seems like the bulk of their business comes from mail-in shoeshine orders (from all over the country), which is remarkable.
Ken-san is on location on Mon, Wed, and Fri. for walk in clients.
That sole`s shape is lovely indeed. Is that a Classic round toe? I assume the last is `twisted` in an English way?If I recall right, the fitting shoe is complete with shanks, heel, stiffeners, leather sole etc... Might as well keep them as an extra pair (and spare them from being cut up)
Here it is. The mother of all menswear sale in Japan is starting tomorrow morning. Yes, I mean the Isetan MEN`S Clearance Sale! I know some of our members are going, just expect long lines in the Summer Heat!!
The entire list of brands on sale is available on their website (thankfully in English)
