I found the surcharge quite high, and inquired if they had anything in hatchgrain. Because they didnt know what that was, I said 'let me show you a pair of Girling shoes', and whipped out a picture of Girling shoes in that leather.

I was shocked when the guy said 'disgusting' WITHOUT even looking at the shoes.
(Even if he had looked, it'd still be baseless because the shoes I showed them is a carbon copy of their iconic Churchill shoes except in a different leather).

Stunned by that emotional and baseless reply, I surmised that there must have been some bad blood between Cleverley and Girling and I was just checking out Girling's origins and then I discovered that Tony started off at Cleverley.

No wonder.

Did they older guy kick you out from the shop after the conversation :-P

I often find Russian reindeer looks the best in town shoes e.g. derby or london stitched upper.

Too little gator, should be full of it.

And I always prefer flux lace for lazyman.

BTW, I check the Russian Reindeer wallet. They are really thick for a breast wallet don't you think?

I am confused about the surcharge, so bespoke boots starts at 3800 pounds? or they have recently gone up their price. I always think they start from 2500 pounds.

4200 - 1400 = 2800 smile.gif

Yes, Russian Reindeer strikes me as being too coarse and thick for a coat wallet.

No wonder. But how petty.

I had a similar encounter with George Glasgow in their NYC trunk show. Their bespoke are cheaper than G&G but the finishing wasn't to my taste. I decided to pass because I preferred to pay a bit more for better finishing. I did order one of their Russian Reindeer accessories for several hundred GBP. Still he wasn't happy that I took his time. Glasgow mentioned that they generally only give appointments to people who are serious (about buying their bespoke shoes). I was wearing G&G at the time and I wonder if that colored his opinion.
