The Brown Suede Derby Boot

I like the Sun but I am not a Summer guy. Growing up in Seattle the most beautiful season there is easily Autumn and the weather all year round is most similar to Autumnal weather in any regular city that does not rain 50% of the time. With that in mind, Autumn has always been my favorite. Sartorially, it has been mainly for two reasons. 1. I love boots. And 2. I love to layer […]

Understanding Shoe Colors Online, and Lighting

In photography, lighting is key. It is 70% of the battle in my opinion.

We have gone through several concessions inside other tailor’s premises and two basement level showrooms but this is the first shop we can call our own and no less […]
