This time I actually decided to do something about partly because I was never wearing these shoes and partly to provide you all a post about how to do it in the leisure of your home.

Paolo Scafora Now Carried at Skoaktiebolaget

I have always been a fan of Paolo Scafora. And it is not just for his amazing shoes but also because he a great individual, one that is genuine and passionate. These two traits always show in great shoemakers as they, for me, are prerequisites for lasting in this industry, one that can be very tough and cut-throat. So as Paolo carried these admirable traits I had always hoped that his shoes would get the […]

Gaziano & Girling New Jodhpur Boot Model

Gaziano & Girling never stop ceasing to impress with this new jodhpur boot model that they have launched a few weeks back. Unlike most jodhpur boots that share a very similar pattern, G&G really thought hard about making this one a step and above.
