I have been looking for boot like this.
Your collection is lightyears ahead from my puny one (and in fact from most SFers)
I'm trying to trim down my RTW shoes to the ones that fits my puny feet (I wear a B width if available). Or something that's more personal, like a pair of 30+yrs old JLP passed down from my dad (and resized to fit me)
Thanks B-M! I must say they look even better with a high shine. My iphone photos don't do them justice.
Here's some more pics of those Hiro Yanagimachi boots
we need photos of the jlp
nothing fancy, just an old JLP RTW loafer called Romeo (discontinued a long time ago)
I just want to thank you for all the work you put in this and other threads especially taking time to translate some of the articles. Thank you. I want to visit that beautiful land again so I will dedicate some time exploring sartorial world.
PS. I owe you a drink.
Glad you enjoyed the articles
and you're right, while we only discuss about shoes here, there are also tons to explore in the sartorial world of Japan
Here you go
JLP Romeo, from 30 yrs ago or so. Blake constructed, not sure if they are made in Italy. Old and moldy, I first gave them a good cleaning.
The old John Lobb Paris logo
I acquired a pair of genuine JL sock sheets from my local JL boutique, and had the folks at Rifare, Tokyo, construct a custom insole to resize the shoes (down 1 full size)
The underside: A thick sheet of foam is attached and shaped
The socks fit perfectly. Even better, the once baggy loafers fit quite snuggly now.
From 2013AW Tomorrowland collection, Hidetaka Fukaya's double monk shoes with antique buckles.
