Crockett & Jones at Pitti Uomo 89

Okay well I am about to commence my posts on what I saw at now that the is coming to a close and things are somewhat quieting down. So get ready for about 10 posts on that. I also wanted to reflect on which will be a long, dramatic post so also stay tuned for that if you want to hear the nitty gritty.

First up is Crockett & Jones who had some interesting things to say and see. The most interesting of news is the fact that they are implementing hand burnishing on a production level for their handgrade line as you can see here by all of the darkened toes and depth of coloring through the body. They told me that they wanted to attempt the Italian way and see how people react to them. I thought that it looked quite nice and people do tend to like this type of stuff so I think that it will go well for them. And as it is hand burnishing (as opposed to heat burnishing) it is not as strong looking and will eventually fade away if someone is not too keen on it. It’s a win win really.

Also in the line up were new colorways in existing models. The ones highlighted were the ones that I was particularly fond of, like the navy colored and the in green (which were mind-blowing cool!).

I am sure you will all be excited to see these things in store, so stay tuned this S/S and A/W as these new products get launched.

  1. Well for the hand grade price they certainly needed to do a lot more. Something has started to move and how beautiful they look.
