Pierre still dabbles in shoemaking but I'm not sure he does a pair from start to finish with his travel schedule these days. He has been known to still roll up his sleeves and do the patination work - as well as the polishing work in retail shops if he doesn't like how certain pairs are displayed.

Amd if you done mind me asking what is the cost? And how many visits are required?
It's just MTO so not bespoke. Yes, Arca is a pretty standard model and the 001 or the Pullman last both fit me just fine.
As for the material and cost, I will post that alongside the pics once the pair is done.
