It would be interesting to see a few of their bespoke shoes, and gauge how they compare to the likes of Lobb, Cleverley or Foster. There's a pic of a magnificent brogue made in Russia leather on their website. Personally, I think that type of leather works best in small leather goods or bags.

I have used Benjamin. His quality is outstanding. His turn around time is better than all the makers who I have used. His prices used to be very fair, but it has been a few years. I would expect they still are very reasonable. He and his wife are very friendly people. If you like his shoe styles on his web site, then I would have no reservation about using him. I did, however, have some fit issues that were never resolved-which is why I never went back. But, I have had such issues with all the makers whom I have used. However, his quality is definately on paar with the big boys. Use the search function on this site, you will find plenty of pictures of Kleman's work.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
