Thanks. Completely agreed.I am sure that there are countless reasons for not doing this "he went to work, sent me progress photos and how he changed it." Saying that, progess pictures (regardless of maker) is so helpful. The pictures ensure your commission is correct. It provides reassurances that your shoes are being worked on. You are essentially provided a time table which illicits excitement (because you know soon you would wear the shoes). Sadly, very few partake in that action .
Anyways, that is a phenomenal price, as well as a quick turnaround time. Considering you were happy with the results and he completed all your requests, sounds like he should be on people's radars .
Simon from Wayman sent me progress photos as well (pre lasting, after lasting, pre patina, after patina). One other thing that can be a potential cause for misunderstanding the patina request, is the digital photo and device screen qualities. What I'm seeing/sending from my iPhone 11 pro may be coming across as a very different shade of blue on their side of the screen.
Remember the whole dress color debate from 2015? (black and blue or is it white and gold)
Hancore does more than just shoes too FYI (bags, sneakers, jackets, furniture, etc.) so pricing will vary based on how much work needs to be done. He's based in Brooklyn for those of you in NYC.
I love working with/supporting people like Greg, Simon, Tom, Kostas, Emil, and the folks at Yeossal. They somehow have captured the unicorn of talent, business acumen, responsive customer service, and above all, humility/integrity.
