Anyone know of good leather shoe makers in SF? Or wallet makers?

The only one I know who claims to be a bespoke shoemaker I took to court
15 years ago get back my deposit. She was unable to produce a pair of shoes that fit me.
Measuring was not her strength. You may PM me to learn her name.

I assume you mean bespoke.

April in Paris for leather worker.

No good shoemakers in SF, but John Lobb St. James, George Cleverley, Gaziano & Girling, etc all travels to San Francisco.

Or you could fly down to LA for Saint Crispins (MTO) or to Irvine for John Lobb Paris.

Other shoemakers in two hour travel vicinity includes DWFII (on the forum) and a bunch of other makers around Oregon.

For the local ones, there's Suzanne George, but their focus is *NOT* in hand sewn made-to-measure shoes with custom shoe trees.

p.s., G&G will be here this fall, late September. JLP visits South Coast shop towards the end of every calendar quarter. Saint Crispins will be visiting LeatherSoul Beverley Hills on 9/20-21.

Suzanne George is the lady whom I took to court.
