It is always so inspiring to meet others in your field who are at the top of their game, whose hearts beat faster when they feel they have finished stitching a perfect piece.
Here at The Hampton Classic where we are showing our shearlings, we have met two leather craftsmen who are making exquisite work.
One is Charles Pinnell, from Crozet, Va., who told us he got hooked on working in leather when he was 16. I will post a few photographs, because there are no words to describe how great the work is.
Tomorrow I will tell you about meeting a legend, 4th generation custom boot and shoe maker from New York City, Mr. hank Vogel.
