You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Hiro Yanagimachi. He will be taking orders for made-to-order and made-to-measure. A variety of samples will be on hand, as well as fitting shoes so you can determine your size.
Hiro offers a line with machine-stitched soles, as well as a fully handmade line. You’ll be able to create a shoe from over 45 models and 50 leathers. Fit and pattern modifications are also available. For more information about his offerings, as well as pricing, see this post on his website.
Since 1999, Hiro has been making hand-welted bespoke shoes in the English tradition. Trained at the London Cordwainers College, he learned the techniques and culture of bespoke shoemaking at places such as John Lobb. In 2012 he began offering a made-to-order line, and until recently has focused on making shoes for local customers in Japan.
