The New Last
The new LAST Magazine Volume 13 is now available in the U.S at Kinokuniya bookstore in New York. The cover of the issue features a pair of Gaziano & Girling Cambridge in Vintage Oak or Espresso Calf on the MH71 last.
One interesting item are the shoelaces, which are normally round. These are flat which I’ve been told by other shoemakers is the preferred style of laces in Japan. I’ll have to ask Tony Gaziano about that when he is here on April 21st for our trunk show.
In case you are unfamiliar with Last it was published twice a year by Esquire Japan and released in the fall and spring. Sadly no more.
