Might you quickly describe why you have the affinity for Foster & Son, they always seem to provide great shoes for you, yet are not very popular here? I think there are one or two people here who have a large number of shoes by a maker such as Cleverley or G&G and they give the appearance that other makers are less popular. I think the majority of bespoke shoe wearers have a small number of bespoke ones and many more non bespoke shoes. I also think most bespoke shoe wearers do not frequent styleforum or other web fashion sites. I looked all the London bespoke makers and got on well with the craftspeople at Foster. I am not after a plain black captoe for my bespoke and their colouration when they get it right is in my limited experience better than the others. They are in central London and open on Saturdays which is convenient to me. Now my last is sorted I do not want to start somewhere else.
