Next Friday and Saturday (November 21st and 22nd), George Glasgow Junior and Teemu Leppanen will be back in Melbourne at Double Monk for their second Australian trunk show of 2014.
As before, they will be taking commissions for bespoke shoes, fittings for existing customers current bespoke orders, as well as fittings and orders for their made to order range. If bespoke is a bit out of your reach, it’s worth looking in to made to order. It offers you the ability to create personalised shoes, obtain a very good fit and at a lot less than bespoke, so it’s well worth considering. Just be aware that it is a gateway drug to bespoke and there’s generally no coming back.
My bespoke double monk’s (see the first post on those here) will be ready, so I’ll be in store on Friday afternoon and possibly again on Saturday (only if Chris and Nick are offering more free whisky).
If you have time, it’s well worth coming by at some point over the two days. Double Monk is one of (in my opinion “the”) most beautiful men’s shoe store in the world, thanks to the hard work of Chris and Nick Schaerf. George and Teemu are two of the nicest guys you could hope to meet and are among the worlds best bespoke shoemakers.
