The new LAST Magazine Volume 13 is now available in the U.S at Kinokuniya bookstore in New York. The cover of the issue features a pair of Gaziano & Girling Cambridge in Vintage Oak or Espresso Calf on the MH71 last.
One interesting item are the shoelaces, which are normally round. These are flat which I’ve been told by other shoemakers is the preferred style of laces in Japan. I’ll have to ask Tony Gaziano about that when he is here on April 21st for our trunk show.
In case you are unfamiliar with Last it was published twice a year by Esquire Japan and released in the fall and spring. Sadly no more.
We received two G&G MTO’s that I would like to share with you:
The Corniche in Arran Grain on the MH71 Last
The Connaught in Black Calf on the DG70 Last
A reminder that Leffot will host a G&G trunk show with Tony Gaziano on April 21st. Hope to see you here.
Our recent delivery of Gaziano & Girling MTO’s featured the following styles,
The Gable MH71 Last in Polo Suede
The Windsor MH71 Last in Vintage Oak
The Canterbury GG06 Last in Black Calf
The Hughes TG73 Last in Vintage Cedar
The Westbury TG73 Last in Vintage Rioja
The Mitchell TG73 Last in Vintage Chestnut
The Eton MH71 Last in Walnut Grain on Dainite Soles
These Gaziano & Girling MTO’s were in and out of the store the very same day. Both pairs for one of our favorite clients, who now owns four G&G’s.
Given that he can have them made in his size, 9C has made him a true convert. I was quite happy to hear him say, “Since I’ve been wearing G&G my feet no longer bother me”. That’s a strong statement and a testament to the fit and support that’s truly unique to Gaziano & Girling shoes.
Not only do they look great, but they “feel” great as well, and that’s exactly what investing in quality footwear is all about.
