I don't think you will find EG wanted out of the bespoke business at all, Tony was approached by Dean Girling in regards to going at it alone, so EG were left without anyone to run the bespoke operation.

Why couldn't EG find a replacement?

I think finding someone in the same ball park as Tony in terms of skill and experience will be a fairly difficult task.

When I saw Tony Gaziano today to get measured for a bespoke shoe, he told me that he's leaving EG shortly to start his own bespoke shoe company, but with EG's blessings. He's telling all his potential clients so that they know what's going on before committing to a shoe.

EG will no longer be offering bespoke. The new company will be called Gaziano Girling, with Mr. Girling as Tony's partner who does the sewing and finishing of the bottom part of the shoe, while Tony handles the lastmaking, clicking, the uppers, and the finishing.

exactly my thoughts, too

these are contest styles. fwiw, seems to be rather tricky to do the "braided" part.

I visited John Lobb, St. James Street, a couple of weeks ago. A few fresh photos from there: You'll find more photos at Stiljournalen: http://stiljournalen.blogspot.com/20...john-lobb.html

Quite a few of these appear to be copies from vintage classics on centipede even dating to 1920s which is not a criticism as I have often wondered if someone would reproduce them in the 21stC.

Congrats!
