Best balanced chukka I've seen. He really puts quite a bit of thought into his work.
I agree. Quite the work.
rumor has it when they are in HK they pocket quite a few from the restaurants

Hiro Yanagimachi Workshop Pattern Order Fair, Starting 11/16~12/1
With a reputation of having an almost surgical grade precision in craftsmanship, great fitting, and a classic English styling, Hiro Yanagimachi Workshop has been one of the standard bearers of Tokyo`s bespoke scene for some time. His `Pattern Order` MTO shoes (with so called 9/10 handmade construction) are already excellent deals at ¥150K yen or so. The semi-annual order fair, like this upcoming Fall edition, brings them to an even more attainable price with a ¥30K ($300) discount
5 all new designs (all different from the Spring event that I have reported previously) and 5 materials are available for selection. Priced from ¥120K to ¥130K JPY.
During the period of the Order Fair (until 12/1 Sun), the atelier will be open to the public w/o need for appointment.

It appears that these were only available during Isetan's Ivy style exhibition, and I wasn't aware!!!! I blame you nutcracker, you should have told me
Ooops! Yeah the exhibition lasted only 1 week, and ended just a while ago. It`s hard to believe that those shoes were only available for such short time....
Maybe its` a travelling exhibition.
Not to worry, I probably wouldn't have pulled the trigger anyway, they were a bit more expensive than I thought they'd be.
How much were they? The PTB, for example.
I recall them being a bit more than ¥100K JPY
105,000 yen ~ 115,000 yen.
¥100K plus for Regal . . .

I know. I had that feeling in general about the exhibition, fun though it was... and the shoes didn't look that fantastic in reality. Nice enough, but that's all.
