6 | BESPOKE SHOES FITTING
During a second appointment, the client will try on the work of art created from the traditionally-made last. The shoemaker will note the points to be rectified in order to finely adjust the fit and offer the client a perfect pair of shoes.
3 | The Shoe Last
We believe the last and silhouette of our shoes is one of the most important factor that sets us apart. Both our current chiseled square & smart round lasts took months to perfect before being placed into production. They are sculpted to form a more structured profile that provides poise and modern elegance.
5 | PATTERN-CUTTING, LEATHER-CUTTING AND CLOSING
The pattern-cutter begins by covering the last with an adhesive canvas on which our artisans will draw the model. This adhesive material will then be peeled off and the model reproduced on a cardboard pattern. From this pattern the cutter will cut the pieces of leather that will form the shoe’s upper. These pieces will then be pared, assembled and stitched by the specialist craftsman.
2 | THE LEATHER
Handpicked, full-grain leathers | To ensure that our shoes are strong and long lasting, we use only full-grain calf leathers. Not only are they more durable, the natural surface of full grain leather shows character and beautifies with age. All our leathers have been carefully sourced and handpicked to provide the best value we can to you.
4 | The Shoe Construction
All our shoes are made using the handmade blake-stitched welting construction, as opposed to Goodyear machine welting, hand-lasting as opposed to machine-lasting. Not only does it reduce the overall weight of the shoes, it can last for a long time if cared for properly. Our shoes are also made with leather soles which allows resoling, and truly differentiates it's quality to that of a cemented rubber sole's construction.
