Japanese Shoes: Bespoke & RTW Super Thread - Page 108

post #1606 of 2750

Despite the incredible skill involved, I've got to say that those are just over my personal line dividing uniquely beautiful from ridiculous.

Is this the omakase type of order? Clever way of filling the spec.

Other than the coin surprise, I think the design/spec was reviewed and agreed upon, considering the high price of the material....
The client seemed to have a pretty clear idea of what he wanted. A croc loafer in the style of LHS or 180, to be worn with multiple layers of socks...... maybe he has a medical condition uhoh.gif

Interesting, thanks. In the interview he talks about getting his clothes made at Idem in Ginza - but if you check their website (which is tricky to find anyway), they only seem to make women's clothes... I will have to go down and check it out myself.

The tailor, I.D.E.M., shares the showroom with Guild. I recall they are tucked in the back of the store (the front part is Guild). and yes, they do make men's clothing.
