One of Crockett & Jones’ employees, Bismark Walter, has taken it upon himself to become a master of the brushes and learn mirror polishing and patina in order to add an extra value service to the Jermyn St. shop of Crockett & Jones in London. He has apparently built quite the reputation and customer following as his Instagram account is filled with beautiful shoes and polish/patina jobs. You can see a couple of them here.

His service, however, is exclusive to C&J shoes so if you are the proud owner of one of the esteemed British shoemaker’s pairs and wish to spruce them up a bit, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Bismark to do just that!

I am quite fond of how he patina’s the penny loafers. Imagine the possibilities!

You can contact him via his Instagram page at

Happy Labor Day weekend to all those that celebrate it!

      This is a blog. Each post is about a different shoemaker. You must read the text and click on the link to the maker in question. Then contact that maker directly to see if they ship to South Africa
