I would like to know your opinion as to who would you think as the top three of Japanese bespoke at the present time?
Who`s the best 3 shoemakers? I don`t feel qualified to answer that (especially not having tried them), but I `m sure a good argument can be made for a number of fine Japanese shoemakers.
If we`re talking about a popularity contest (who`s most recognised / talked / written about), I suppose the winners are Il Micio (Hidetaka Fukaya), Spigola and Yohei Fukuda? I could be wrong.
I`ve heard Fukuda`s wait list is over 2 years right now.
