I get nothing out of this line. As far as I'm concerned he's "some dude"

In all seriousness he is a very talented shoemaker. The examples of his bespoke work that I have seen are excellent. Cleaner than his British counterparts both in design and finish. Problem is, he does not travel to the US.

Thanks Jerrybrown. I had seen these but didn't realize these were koji suzuki designed. The split toe looks like the sc 575 I have.

Same thing happens at the G&G thread with a huge void of bespoke filled by vender spams.

 

BTW, what exactly is the difference between regular SC vs. SC x Koji Suzuki collaboration?!?  Different upper patterns??

 

I asked Philip Car of SC when I met him at the Drake's trunk show about this and my understanding was that only one shoe was desiged by Suzuki but never actualIy produced

Hmm. The Drake's store says all three.

SC x Armoury shoes have distinct upper patterns. SC x Koji does not, and those three offerings do have existing pattern counterparts. Being made on the same last does not help in distinguishing them either.

Anyone have pictures of them side to side to compare the patterns?

Gentlemen, does anybody here own the Saint Crispin's 316 Saddle Derby, and how comfortable is the Riva last. I get a pretty good fit in my Crockett & Jones 341 lasted derby's. Does the Riva last run narrow or true to size? Thanks.

Don't have SC on riva last, but can tell about classic last.
UK9,5E in 341 = UK9,5F in classic

Agree. Sc is narrower though

Have any of you guys ever bought shoes from Reto Zimmermann of Zimmermann & Kim in Seoul, South Korea? I got a quote from him yesterday, I'm assuming Zeto is a man, of $1550 USD, approximately, for a pair Saint Crispin's of my choice including shoe trees and eight week delivery. Does this sound about right? If anyone has had a good experience with other retailers of SC shoes feel free to pass that on if you could. Thanks.
