Picture Postcard: The waiting game is almost over...

The wait for Mr. Orwell is almost over...

Mr. Hare is the ultimate shoeist and his passion for shoes, as documented on his blog, made him a firm favourite on our blogroll back when we were just starting out in this blogging game. We were both excited and intrigued when he announced he was taking his obsession one step further and rolling up his sleeves to create his own AW09. We were the first to interview him as part of our 'Style Salvage speaks to' series and we have been impatiently waiting for the news that his stock is now available to buy. Yesterday morning, my Tuesday got that bit better when I recevied a teasing email that said the wait would soon be over. I included the Stingray Orwell in my 'Items worth saving up for' post back in March and despite not being the best at saving those pennies, my desire to have these on my feet come August (I hope) has not relented so I will just have to turn to a life of crime or prostitution. Are there any items out there which are making you consider the dark life to ensure that they become yours?

i'd like to see the collection in real life.

the 2 hues of brown on the 'Miller' are most peculiar together.

Laurence John: I have seen the collection in person and the unusual combination of hues didn't strike me at the time. I think there is always an issue with photographing patents. Visit Dover Street Market in a couple of months and you can inspect them up close though.

i don't mean in a bad way... just challenging my colour sense !

The well documented temptation of crime & prostitution are getting a little too inviting whenever I see this Rick Owens leather jacket ( http://www.oki-ni.com/invt/ro0049blk )
or the Christopher Kane 'Baboon' T-shirt.
