Or perhaps Suzuki is the Inoue Shinkai (known as the Osaka Masamune) of shoes

Italian/Latin influence is quite strong in the Kansai area (Osaka, Kobe, Fukuoka) for some reason, whether its tailoring or shoemaking.
Tokyo is still a hotbed for the English tradition, and not all Tokyoites dig the look of Spigola (from the people I talk to). I may be overgeneralising, but I do hear other Japanese say the same thing.

This may be a re-post, but here we go: Koji 'Spigola' Suzuki. I just love the contours and proportions on this model so much I'm calling this a Masterpiece.

If it's a re-post, it's worth re-posting!  Delicious.

why is every little weird Italian shoe brands available in Japan, even those ones that usually make for others have their house brand in Japan. I have seen a lot more brands come and go in NYC (not necessarily because they're bad, just because it happens).

btw....Spigola MTO Trunk Show will be held in Tokyo 6/20 (Thurs) through the weekend.
So if you're in town, may be a good chance to order one, or to just gawk at the sample shoes lol8[1].gif

Out of curiosity, how much are entry-level MTO Spigola shoes in Jpn?

I have been told HKD$15000 as starting 9.5 MTO price, with very small top ups for most extra (e.g. fiddleback waist)

Generally, it is the price you will probably pay for a St Cripins or similar top end shoe.

I was expecting different prices in Jpn.

I thought St Crispins are 9450 HKD (800 GBP), and Spigolas are 15, 000 HKD (1270 GBP) for their MTO in HK?

Spigola MTO starts from ¥108,000 JPY direct from Suzuki's Kobe studio (as of March 2013). That is $1,050 USD, or $8,170 HKD.
They start a bit more @ the Tokyo Trunk Show. Price here starts from ¥126,000 JPY. That is $1,230 USD, or $9,530 HKD.
You can probably shave off 5% VAT from that (not much though...)

Price doesn't include Shoe trees.

I'm not sure if The Armoury includes shoe trees in their price. If not, I say their upcharge is quite steep in today's currency. $15,000 HKD = $1,930 USD / ¥198,000 JPY
