    Are you using your Shell Cordovan hides to make anything?

    Not yet for the new lot.
    Any idea?

    New bespoke project.

    Fitting in Tokyo March 2011.

    I suppose the statue of David was not bought off the rack.

    I like that, very subtle.

    Yes, I do think so. I will adjust the pattern for the next pair.

    This pair is inspired by this:

    nice - close but a shortened cap will make it look better

    I know, I know. That is the first thing I told the shoemaker when I saw the shoe. :p

    For a bespoke hand welted project under USD350, you can't expected too much. Next pair will be cheaper, since the last is set.

    Shell cordovan balmoral boots would be amazing. But then again it all depends on what you already have. Are you going to be using Kow hoo again?

    Very nice! Suede/calf combination is a great style. Who's making this pair?
