Need more close picture of welt stitching and waist.
Shoe is very very good.
What do you mean by "really nice leather"? i.e. what are the differentiating characteristics of this leather that other bespoke houses cannot obtain? Both Lobb and Berluti have their own house special antiqued leathers but what else? As I understand it, JM Weston is the only company with complete vertical control of their leather supply, all the way from raising the cows to tanning.
wow, awesome shoes, but thin skins, take care of them.
I think about 2 years.
I do not recall what type of leather exactly. It was made in Italy, I do know that. Email Koji and he will give a better estiimate of many virgins must sacrificed.
It was my choice. I really liked the leather.
Lobb Paris gets among the best leather I have seen. That being said, JP Myhre's leather really impressed me. Delos, Koji and Cleverly were no slouches either.
I am glad you enjoyed the photos.
I am only asking from an end consumer point of view.
Don't know if that makes sense.
chikor, are you happy about the medallions not being an equal distance from the welt,look at the first angle and it 's quite obvious.After such a long wait and a hefty price is it what to one would expect from such a highly touted maker.
Koji is definitely the ultimate bespoke shoemaker. It really doesn't get better than him in my book. You are very lucky! Wear them in good health! That is, if you can get yourself to wear them!
awesome shoes. thanks for posting.
what makes you think that? a two years wait is not reasonable?
understood, that op had the most expensive journey known on sf for his bespoke shoes and garments. good thing. he travelled a lot and this is always a benefit in a man's portfolio.
Please contact Mr. Suzuki for prices. I am sorry that I did not answer your question about the time. I answered it for another member in this post. It was about 2 years.
I have to agree with you there. Thank you for your compliements.
