GAZIANO&GIRLING BESPOKE Full Brogue Oxford
My God those are sweet.
Yes, welcome, centipede. I can't tell you what a revelation your site was when we all discovered it sometime last year. Shock and awe (albeit in a proper curatorial way). The gasps of delight and disbelief were duly recorded here, with each viewer finding something that another had missed (though I fear these were all lost in the crash). Anyway, I hope you will favor us with some comment. Are the shoes on your site all your own? How long have you been collecting old bespoke shoes? All those Cleverlys and Tuczeks are amazing. Oh, and the Ugolinis, of course. And are you the first one here on SF to actually put your hands on a pair of shoes made by Koji Suzuki?
Just when you think you've seen it all...
Thank you. RJman & pejsek.
Are not good at English I, and ..expression.. I am sorry ..unskilled...
Shoes exhibited on the my site are my own things and my friend's shoes.
Among those shoes, about 30% belongs to my friend.
I have been collecting shoes for about seven years.
Shoes made in Koji Suzuki for me are one. Other Koji Suzuki shoes belong to my friend.
Well, it's great to see you here, centipede. Your English is certainly good enough to get along (and would that we could say that about everybody here). The Gaziano & Girling shoes you posted most recently must be about the first ones anybody has seen. As I posted elsewhere, they remind me a great deal of some beautiful old Henry Maxwell brogues I have.
If you get the chance I'd be grateful if you would look at my post on Japanese bespoke shoemaking (titled, apropriately, 'The Centipede Has Landed'). Are you by any chance familiar with the work of Hiro Yanagimachi, Koji Takano, or Yukiko Bassett Okawa?
Out of the blue the elusive Darren Beaman sent me this link, without a covering note:
Interesting website; anyone else know of them?
Considering that no names are named (or even invoked to suggest coolness or general stylistic direction) and the only pictures to be found are of orthopedic shoes...
Here's an interesting link from a Japanese site devoted to bespoke shoes. It's a bit difficult to navigate since it is apparently only possible to link to the main page. From the main menu select the 4th, 5th, and 6th entries and then from each of those use the menu scrolling on the left hand side. It is cumbersome and confusing (esp. without being able to read Japanese), but to those who persevere await shoes by Henry Maxwell, Arcando Milano, EG for Flusser (707 last), Stefano Bemer, Tuczek, Corthay, both Cleverlys, Ethos Club, Benjamin Klemann, Jason Amesbury, Foster & Son, Balint, Materna, a whole slew of Polish bespoke makers, and the rightly overlooked Golden Shoe Hokkaido:

It's a bit difficult to navigate....to those who persevere....
That's what I like about Japanese sites: they take you back to the spirit of Christmases past.
Until you've opened the thing, you have no idea what is inside.
Yes, that's the good part, isn't it?
Centipede in the house! Welcome!
Thank you A Harris.
This shop makes good shoes.
