We’re pleased to bring Salvatore Ambrosi, maker of the finest bespoke trousers, to Leffot for a trunk show. Renowned for their impeccable fit and comfort, his trousers feature extensive hand work, an extended waist band, double pleats, and a button cuff.

The Ambrosi family have been trouser makers for the past four generations. The Ambrosi legacy began during the economically testing time of the Second World War. Antonio Ambrosi seized the opportunity to provide practical work trousers in a time when formal suiting and sports jackets were considered frivolous. When Italy returned to normalcy, Ambrosi produced trousers for the most respected tailoring houses in Naples.

Appointments required.

Edward Green is regarded by many to make “the finest shoes in all of England for the discerning few.” A more classic English shoe would be hard to find. Having been in business for more than 120 years, Edward Green has become discreetly famous for the finest welted shoes.

Our EG shows are tremendously popular. We present the largest selection of samples assembled at any Edward Green show in North America. You will have your choice of models, lasts, leathers, colors, and soles for your made to order pair.

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.
