I can't believe there are not a few great shoemakers left in HKG who were trained by those guys.

No, I am not talking about Lee Kee.
Most of the shoemakers as well as tailors are near their late 70s, few of them who were trained at 1970s reach 60s already.
I just know last month, one of my tailors (maker) retired.
Can you believe that my shoemaker is still working everyday (just few hours) and he is 92 now? ( He is not the real maker though, I think he just make the forme)

Awesome Cleav, I do like how the leather has a nice patina. Those are JL right? Prior to their "JL" heel stuff?
