I am interested in getting a pair of Cleverley's made but am not planning on going to the UK any time soon. Â I've heard they do visits to the US. Â Does anyone know if this is true, and if so when they will be in NYC next? Â I've emailed them with no luck and don't really want to call (I only have a cell phone, no land line).
I've e-mailed GJ Cleverley three or four times, and I've always found Mr. Glasgow (as in George Glasgow and John Carnera, who received the right to use Cleverley's name and lasts from the man himself) or whomever responds to e-mails using Mr. Glasgow's name to be very polite and very informative. It took a few days in one or two instances -- I get the idea that Mr. Glasgow only checks e-mail a couple of times a week. In any event, a GJ Cleverley representative will be in New York at the Inter-Continental Hotel on October 4, 6, 7, and 8. Chicago, San Francisco, Beverly Hills, Washington, and Boston are also on the itinerary. Keep in mind that if you are a first-time customer, you'll need to go to a fitting when a Cleverley representative returns to the US in the spring before you get the finished shoes. Assuming that you don't want exotic skins, the shoes should run around 1350 UKP.
