Owning bespoke/custom items does not make one into a snob
. Most of my childhood friends think I am the same person as before. My wife made the comment since I bemoaned the fact that (after learning from you and others why my Tod's got wet inside) my Tod's were "Blake" and that I would not buy such shoes again when b.s.f (before style forum) I just went and bought what I liked.
But maybe you order bespoke shoes, because as a child you were so poor and had to go barefoot to school?
Nope, I buy bespoke shoes because (amongst other reasons): - they fit me better (I've got sunken arches and different foot sizes) - some of the styles I liked were not available as RTW - some of the styles I liked that were available as RTW did not fit my foot. But why the comment?
