Talking 'bout Guild of Crafts....

Hong Kong's Apple Daily Online has a News article on Mr.Yamaguchi and his craft (in Chinese). A nice extended biography, for those who can read. There is also a video clip (in Cantonese, sorry)

Some pictures of the Hong Kong Trunk Show from last month (from Guild web page)


Artful Display



Looks like he had plenty of media attention


Full page ad on Newspaper

I wonder if any forum member visited the show...?


Hong Kong's very own Masaru Okuyama was Yamaguchi's pupil.

I did not know that they had a trunk show.   There is a place which exhibits GOC shoes which is next to the gallery they did a trunk show.   They are on the same floor of Armoury.  I was wondering what the place was, it does not look like a shop at all.    They have watches by independent watch makers, so it is a custom made only boutique or some thing like that?

Spigola Bespoke + MTO Catalog

Well, more exactly a two page spread from the recent MEN'S EX that I scanned and tampered with. lol8[1].gif
Anyway, this spread should be useful for the Spigola fans out there, plenty of info, pics and a price guide!

for higher resolution, open the LINK (not the image) in a new tab/window



btw I skipped the interview part, hope no one minds. I may or may not work on it later.
