If my memory serves me correctly, in England's famed Princes Arcade and in Japan there is a store owned by a man named Saxby, who has collected classics of bespoke clothing for resale to a discerning palate, I mean public. The Japanese website of his store features many examples of beautiful old bespoke shoes from such makers as Maxwell, McAfee and Poulsen Skone. Many of these models are justifiably well used. So I have a question to put to you: is there a way for such acquirors of "pre-owned" footwear to have their purchases reconditioned by the makers? IMMSMC many ready-to-wear makers offer such services, but of course in bespoke footwear there is a certain awkwardness to returning footwear likely numbered for the original purchaser for such work.
