I was speaking about you...I can't figure out why someone who, by his own admission, has never had a stitch prick or a fudge wheel in his hand. Who has never holed an insole or made handwax,. etc., etc. etc., feels compelled to personally criticize someone who has. But along with the white gloves and tails, it's an MO, isn't it?

Your comments about English work or even fudge work aren't exactly balanced either. And, more importantly, since you've never done any of the physical work, yourself...probably as immodest as it gets.

Looking back, my observations about fudge wheels in general, esp. in comparison to stitch pricks, probably weren't balanced. And I apologize to others in this thread and to any Japanese maker who may have been offended, for that.

However, my comments/observations were about technique and the differences in results...they weren't aimed at anyone in particular--as your comments were. I won't apologize for defending myself.

For those who haven`t seen yet, YOHEI FUKUDA, still arguably the hottest bespoke maker in Japan, has an excellent Facebook page with lots of pictures. Written entirely in English. A must see!

and Mr. Cho from TheArmoury did a few posts documenting his trial fitting session with Fukuda san.

Mr Fukuda's shoes all appears to be very delicate!

I was browsing Tye Shoemaker's blog today and my wife instantly fell in love with this pair below.

While my original intent was to make a bespoke pair for myself coming October (shoemaker not yet decided they're all brilliant) now I really want to get her this pair instead, for her birthday. Now if only we can synchronize our travel plans...
