    AC is still GW right? For me at least at that price range bugs me a bit...

    AC should be GYW afair.
    In such case I will keep my AC as I got very low instep too - so low that even Joe Works don't work well

    Indeed AC is GW, and made in Northampton. YF RTW is made of the same leather on offer for bespoke, HW and seems made by aspiring artisans - the number of hours dedicated to each pair is significantly longer than any other RTW. Here are some close-ups of details. I wore these yesterday for a full day, and can confirm the half size down from my GG is fair - the profile is very much YF -sleek, fine curves in vamp and toe, good arch contour and as close you will get to a bespoke in a RTW.

    What ever happened to this venture? Did Koji Endo ever make it to Toronto?
