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!

Happy Labor Day weekend to all those that celebrate it!
