While you are still enjoying summer, we are covering you for the upcoming seasons.
Come visit us in your favorite summer hangouts, in The Berkshires or The Hamptons, and take a moment to start building your fall and winter wardrobe ,while still hanging on to the glorious midsummer days, and enjoy the shopping experience at these lovely events.
Come say hello, and get first dibs on what we have been working on this summer!
The way we do business, participating in juried shows over the years , traveling to different areas of the country, to often very interesting locations, most recently The Chicago Botanic Garden…. is a very personal experience……we make friends with other Artisans, meet their families, many of who come to help out at the show, or just drop by to catch up. Friendships also develop with clients and and their famillies……..that have followed our work over the years.
We just finished our first 3 show of this season, and I wanted to share some pics of good times, good friendships and families.
It’s that time of year again, your thoughts turn to fall…..
You can stay on the beach or in the mountains, stroll the botanic garden,
and take a break to visit our new collection right in the places you love the most!
Coats, Jackets, Capes, Ponchos, Accessories
handcrafted of fine Merino Shearling and Lambskin
Made to Measure, and Off the Rack
We are home, mentally full, & physically exhausted from an eight day show in Bridgehampton.
Sales, weather (all kinds), meeting many new people, fishing & beach time, viewing glamour, Hamptons shopping, eating great food………
One of the highlights of the week was being invited to a party at Snake Hollow Studio, and getting to meet the artist Lynn Matsuoka, and birdhouse/furniture designer Keith Barker, whose warm hospitality and group of friends will be fondly remembered.
Lynn visited our booth at The Classic with her son Ryunosuke Matsuoka (Sen restaurant in Sag Harbor)
who brilliantly positioned herself behind our Magenta Jacket!
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. http://www.pinnellcustomleather.com
Tomorrow I will tell you about meeting a legend, 4th generation custom boot and shoe maker from New York City, Mr. hank Vogel.
