In a world where everything is serial made it's a breath of fresh air when you can find something that can be custom made. I wanted a pair of gingham shoes since spotting ones from J. Crew a few months back.
Shoe makers are not easy to come by, but someone I know knew someone else who is a customer of this shoe maker, who then referred it to me. This one in particular only makes two or three styles of shoes mostly flats - all with fabric.
So, sometime in October I picked out black and white gingham fabric, the black zig zag ribbon and then paid a visit to the shoe maker's shop which is a tiny place run by an elderly gentleman and his wife.
I got there with really high expectations but my wings were rapidly cut - however there were little things they were able to do for me, like leather soles.
Two weeks later I picked up my shoes and today I am wearing them for the first time today.
When was the last time you had something custom made, what was it ?
