I saw some interesting discussion about a certain brand here. As such, I suspect I might have talked to a hacked Instagram account, a truly sober boss, or I committed some serious crime by reading StyleForum and learning about the existence of handwelted construction from @DWFII...

(Seriously, I don’t know what have I done wrong to deserve this. I asked about the pricing and last the day before, and did not have any “back-and-forth” in terms of quoting multiple models etc)

I have it on good authority that Mr. Pibb wears blue alligator skin Cleverly Chelsea boots. Big big star.

On a side note, they should use the formerly sunken Russian reindeer hide to pave the streets of Hollywood, because apparently they’ll never run out of that stuff.

“What native English speaker says "my friend" who's not also a 1960s Bond villain?”

This is a candidate for the greatest statement ever made on Styleforum. And I’m going to steal it.

Now this reminds me of two meetings with Glasgow’s.

Was in London to paid a visit after walking Jermyn St, Glasgow Sr shown his passion on creating footwear for clients and designing and delivering well crafted pairs to all walks of life (if you could settle the sum). Introduced to me one of the last maker and kind of studies my slender feet that having troubles fitting with Anthony Cleverley pair. Advised to provide free re-last (?!) and suggested to contact his son during trunk show.

So i meet the Jr in Hong Kong. Expected sales tone and introduced “you should own a pair as a staircase to catch up with the hall of fame of celeb”, roughly something like this. Put down the AC pair and got a bespoke shoe faux-leather print box back home. Now put on bench to store bills.

When the pair came back, it creased like hell, which I wore it less than 5 times to weddings only. Feels like they simply stretched the pair. No feeling of re-last or heel cup tightened. Charged 100 quid. And I have to iron the crease with help of pal.
And after we ironed the pair they sort of directly just post the photos we took without asking either me or you.
