Hi all,

 

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I often have a read through this forum and it seems you guys know what you're talking about. 

 

I'm wanting to add a protective layer to the sole of my jodhpurs and my western wyatts. Both my black and nut harness wyatts wore a hole in and I got them resoled, however you lose the SLP logo underneath and I also find the heel is never quite right when they've been resoled. 

 

So I'm wondering if anyone has a trusted/recommend cobbler in London (preferably central or north) and what I should ask for (vibram/toppy)?

 

Thank you in advance.

Classic Shoe Repairs do work for the Bond Street store. I've had several pairs done there and they did an excellent job. They have two options for rubber half soles; one thinner (which I always go with), as well as a thicker but less sleek option.

If you want to resole it while keeping the logo and heel maybe s half-sole resole instead may be the solution. But there are people who advocate full sole resole only because there is a slice point when you do half-sole.

i go to a guy around the corner from the big tesco in covent garden. i don't think his shop even has a name. he's very good and has plenty of experience with sl boots from me. better than the guys bond st use in my opinion. he'll also turn around a pair in the same day.

Could someone in NYC recommend a trusted cobbler who could add a topy/vibram layer with a short turn around time? Additionally, what is a good price to pay to add a topy/vibram layer to protect the sole? I checked Leather Spa years ago and they seemed pretty expensive at the time considering that my most expensive pair of shoes cost around $400 back then. smile.gif

Thanks in advance!

I goto Arty's in Chelsea.

Adding a rubber layer is a very simple job and any decent cobbler can do it. I think I pay 30 or 40 per pair, don't remember.

Thank you all.

 

I will try out Classic Shoe Repairs as it turns out it is just down the road from me. 

 

I wish I had known about half-sole resoles earlier, but it's something to consider for the future.

Anyone see the indigo raw D01's anywhere?

Finally got around to snapping a pic of my new corduroy blazer. Fit is excellent, really slim in the arms and body. The suede elbow patches are a nice touch. Don't know how much you can really layer under it, but shirts and fine knit sweaters shouldn't be any problem, which is how I'll primarily be wearing mine. I think it's a great all-around piece. It's hard to properly capture the texture, as it's quite subtle. I actually have the corduroy D02s as well, though it's obviously advisable to wear the two on seperate occasions.



Also, I grabbed the summer issue of Wonderland today, as there's a short feature on Hedi's time at Saint Laurent. It consists of recollections from a few of his models (Julia Cumming, Lili Sumner, Paul Lemaire, etc.) plus new photographs of couture pieces from FW16. I can post some pics if anyone is interested.

Looks great Isolar! Good ensemble.

On another note, does anyone have experience with the leather backpacks? I have the classic, black canvas one. I love the shape, size, and discreetness. I was thinking about mixing it up with the anthracite grey leather on the web store, but not sure if leather backpacks hold up well, and look okay, yada yada.
