    Could anyone recommend a good cobbler in DC or NoVA?

    How about in Loudoun-Fairfax area?

    Dunno about Loudoun/Fairfax - perhaps you can avail me to a nice dry cleaners/laundry in the Fairfax area though? [​IMG]

    I second the vote for Sky Valet. However I too am looking for someone more convenient. Like someone in northern VA or downtown DC.

    I bring all my shoes and my mother's fine leather goods to a fourth generation craftsman in City of Falls Church (about a mile from Sym's store in Seven Corners). Steve, the owner, has had the store since before I bought my home in Falls Church 25 years ago. He's worked on my Testoni's, Bally's, Gucci's and recently my John Lobb's for cleaning and minor repair. Highly recommended. It's listed under Bedo's Leatherworks in yellow pages at (703-534-3233).

    I had my Mephisto's resoled there but I can't remember what he charged then. Sorry I can't help more.

    Thanks. Found it: http://www.leatherrepair.com/
    The prices seem pretty reasonable. I take it you like the quality as well.
