It's been a long, exciting day of filming with the brilliant @wednesdayfilms. Really looking forward to seeing the outcome of a day's making and shooting!
Bespoke Derbys, freshly finished in a beautiful pull-up leather called Urbanite, size 9w with Vibram Ribbed soles. Pull-ups are one of my favourite leathers, they're usually heavily waxed and when stretched and formed, the leather fades and reveals soft tonal variations. These are made for one of my most regular customers, a fell-runner, and a gentleman who likes his footwear with minimal lining and a loose relaxed fit.
Now in the hands of their new owner, this is a pair of Plait Sandals, in my current favourite CC Fodder leather. I love the tonal variation with this heavily waxed leather, which only increases with wear. Really enjoyed making this style, very satisfying all round.
Another Vintage style on order from the back catalogue of the workshop, this is the T-bar, in Waxed Tan Leather, size 9.5, with a Vibram Gumlite sole. Always fun to be making with the old patterns, from which can evolve new ideas.
