    I found a link to a great Seattle shoe maker years ago but totally forgot their name and link. Their site had a photo of orange wingtips. If anyone could recommend shoe makers in Seattle, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Craig Corvin. He refined his craft from Marcell Mrsan of Koronya bespoke from Hungary.

    Have you had any experience with Craig's work? I exchanged emails with him last summer but didn't follow up.

    Prices? He certainly makes a wide range of styles.

    Only email exchanges. Don't have the time to visit him personally to place an order yet.

    Between than JL Classic and Prestige, no trees. Need more due diligence but it seems like he doesn't make lasts from scratch but augment/reduce from existing lasts similar to Vass.
