Hughes Low Custom Alligator Wallet Review - Page 3
Styleforum Top Picks
I am glad I found this thread. My dad sent him some Edward Green leather samples to make some watch bands a while back and has not been able to get in touch with him for a few months now? Does anyone know what is going on with Hughes? Is he away? His website is still active. I am the one who recommended him to my dad based on reviews I had seen here so I really don't want anything to go wrong. If anyone has any contact with Hughes could you see what the deal is? Thanks.
Same experience, Hughes and I had worked up a custom wallet, he was going to source the leather and keep me informed. That was 4 months ago, no contact. I have since moved on, and bought another wallet...
I sure hope you're right. My dad bought some Edward Green samples and wanted watch bands to match the shoes and he worked out a price with Hughes that he was happy with and sent him two of the samples to make approximately 20 bands. He communicated regularly leading up to the deal but now has not responded to multiple messages for an update. He cannot really "move on" as JubeiSpiegel did because Hughes has his leather. In any event, Hughes seems to be a great guy, does amazing work, so hopefully he is just real busy and hasn't been able to check his emails as regularly as he would like. Thanks for the input. I will pass it on to my dad.
Hughes is an awesome person. I also do leather work and when he barely started out selling bespoke goods, I was fortunate enough to ask him for help and exchange info with him. A lot of craftsmen are greedy about their suppliers, info on techniques etc., but not Hughes. I'm pretty sure that his lack of response is due to a high volume of orders. As a leatherworker myself, I know that the process of making a card holder etc. is very time consuming when everything is done by hand.
I know his work is beautiful, but that just makes it harder to see he has started to ignore and not respond to issues. I have a wallet hat is lost in the post for 2 months now and no answers and a french purse that was supposed to be done 6 months ago is still not shipped. When I first dealt with him we would e-mail 5 or 6 times a day to get my orders right.
he's the ambrosi of small leather goods.
