    Did they older guy kick you out from the shop after the conversation :p

    I often find Russian reindeer looks the best in town shoes e.g. derby or london stitched upper.

    Too little gator, should be full of it.

    And I always prefer flux lace for lazyman.

    BTW, I check the Russian Reindeer wallet. They are really thick for a breast wallet don't you think?

    I am confused about the surcharge, so bespoke boots starts at 3800 pounds? or they have recently gone up their price. I always think they start from 2500 pounds.

    4200 - 1400 = 2800 :)

    Yes, Russian Reindeer strikes me as being too coarse and thick for a coat wallet.

    Sorry, I guess now I need to practice my maths.
    Are you sill hunting a breast wallet? i saw a few calfskin, lambskin and bridle wallet at Sage Brown which is very nice only around £100 for the latter.


    Ultimate now rainy day causal shoe? What a good purchase.

    These are a baller now for summer. You can get out naked with those shoes on and still look awesome.

    I had a similar encounter with George Glasgow in their NYC trunk show. Their bespoke are cheaper than G&G but the finishing wasn't to my taste. I decided to pass because I preferred to pay a bit more for better finishing. I did order one of their Russian Reindeer accessories for several hundred GBP. Still he wasn't happy that I took his time. Glasgow mentioned that they generally only give appointments to people who are serious (about buying their bespoke shoes). I was wearing G&G at the time and I wonder if that colored his opinion.
