    Elegant, timeless and lovely. Reminder of the importance of good design. I especially love the sign and the shadow on drapery. This is why I check out your site everyday. Thank you.

    It’s hard for me to wax about the pictures – which are really nice- when the subject is shoes.

    The mens’ are OK, but those pumps! They look lovely AND they look like you could wear and walk in them.

    Gotta go there!

    If there’s one thing that tops my love for Mary Janes, it’s brogue.

    I’m confused, though, is this an establishment that still exists and creates shoes? I hope so; shoe-making is a dying art.

    Wonderfully atmospheric photos; the use of black and white further dramatizes the shoes, which are, God knows, already stage worthy…

    Sart, like I said in my P.S. at your new Tod’s desert boot comments, suede is the way to go. So much richness and depth; like velvet for leather.These shoes and pics bring that richness and depth to the eye. I haven’t crossed paths with this shop…but now I want to.

    Talking about images: You know what? You should publish your “On The Street…..” photos (I love them!) as post cards, posters or at least as a book.

    I wonder how many businesses like this still exist and if young people are taking up this tradition (of both craftsperson and patron)?

    You could definitely call them and ask but I’d be surprised if a bespoke pair is less than $3,000.

    Did Roman let you take a picture of him? I was considering using him because of the ebullient praise by Kabbaz and Flusser. But he has the reputation to be somewhat of a misanthrope.

    Hi, I’ve owned a pair of shoes by Roman for 10 years – they are the best I’ve ever owned – even better than ones handmade in London. I’m going back for more – you should too.
