I have no problem with Cleverley (the firm) getting their PR, I find it amusing how Glasgow Junior gets built-up all of a sudden as the heir apparent and pushed by his dad into the PR limelight.
Judging by the picture, Glasgow Junior is not a young lad of eighteen, nevertheless he only just started in the business (shoe - PR whatever) a year or two ago. Whatever Junior did, he did not work for the firm and presumably worked in something else. Why that rather late conversion to shoemaking, a business he should have started in some fifteen years or so earlier.
Glasgow Senior is not a shoemaker by training, but a front-of-house salesman (the shoe expert in the Cleverley firm is John Carnera, who as far as I know, has by now virtually (or totally) retired). I'm certain, having worked some 42 years in the shoe trade, there is not a lot about shoemaking Glasgow Senior does not know, but how long will Glasgow Junior take to acquire this knowledge? Apparently the two sons of John Hunter Lobb had a thorough training in the physical aspects of shoemaking.
Let's hope Glasgow Junior is ready to get his hands dirty and is willing to learn all aspects of shoemaking, even work in other firms to get a feel for the differences (and similarities), and is not just a handsome face in a nice suit.
