It's not as funky as SC' house designs and its workmanship is so much greater than SC.

 

Love the pair, but I would prefer a smaller proportioned quarter/back piece.

Clematis Bespoke














Japanese are LOVING the high-gloss polishing jobs and finishing. Wish they had more options with a "matte" look, though.

So highly influenced by US vintage styles.

Very nice indeed. A makeup?

Are you adding a mirror shine to the whole shoe, or just the toe cap and the heel?

Thank you. I got them from the Trickers shop in London, a MTO.

Macarthur - thanks. I have been a long-term admirer of your shell collection :-).
