Hiro Yanagimachi joins us this week and next for our annual MTO trunk show. For those unfamiliar with Hiro, he is a master shoemaker, based in Tokyo. He moved to England in 1995, where he graduated first in his class from the prestigious London’s Cordwainer’s College. He then learned the techniques of bespoke shoemaking at John Lobb.

Upon returning to Japan, Hiro started his own brand in 1999. The rest is history.

Hiro is an extraordinary, meticulous craftsman in the fine tradition of English style and shoemaking.

This is a very special trunk show and Hiro’s only visit to the U.S. this year. He’ll be in New York April 21st and 22nd, and Chicago April 24th and 25th. As a shoe enthusiast, I’m certain you will find the shoes and Hiro most interesting.

We’re excited to introduce Hiro’s shoes to the American market. We hope you’ll be able to join us for this very special event.

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with bespoke eyeglass maker Wesley Knight on April 7 and 8. Crafting each pair from water buffalo horn, Wesley takes your specific requests and needs and turns them into a pair of glasses that is truly your own.

Wesley first creates a pattern from scratch, accounting for your facial structure and personal aesthetic. He then crafts a wood test frame for you to try on and approve. Once the design is finalized, he cuts your glasses from water buffalo horn, assembles, and polishes them. With 40 hours of work put into each pair, this is a truly unique and custom experience.

Chicago

February 7 and 8
10 am – 6 pm

Join us as we host Naoki Nakagawa, also known as Nacky, for his first trunk show in Chicago. Nacky makes some of the finest eyewear available. He’ll bring with him samples for sale, and will also take orders for MTO and bespoke.

Nacky began working in the eyewear world as a salesman. When he couldn’t find glasses he would wear himself, he decided to learn to make his own. He trained in Fukui, the home of eyeglasses in Japan. In 2004, after 8 years building a base of knowledge in manufacturing, designing, and retail, Nackymade was born.

Nackymade is all about glasses that fit well, are designed creatively, and crafted with love and care. Nacky respects the traditional way of making spectacles, and uses the best materials, such as Japanese plastic acetate and European antiques. He always tries to create something new and interesting, going so far as developing his own materials.
