All of us have certain individuals in our lives who appear to keep springing up again and again, regardless of where you go, who you’re with, or what you’re doing. George Glasgow, Jr. is one of those individuals for me. He’s the owner of London’s George Cleverley , seemingly the best creator of bespoke shoes on the planet. Name me a renowned or notable individual from the most recent 75 years or somewhere in the vicinity and I nearly promise you they had a couple or two of Cleverley’s in their wardrobe. At least.
George and I initially met near 10 years prior when I was expounding on exemplary menswear, and through a blend of common companions, covering organizations, and a shared love of fake watch prices we’ve kept in contact the whole time. One of the most punctual HODINKEE item joint efforts was even a restricted version set of fake watch prices lashes made by Cleverley out of some madly uncommon Russian reindeer leather from the 18th century. However, that’s a story for another time.
Right now George is on one of his half-yearly voyages through the United States to fit clients for shoes, and during a free evening in New York I had the option to get him into the studio alongside our own Cara Barrett to discuss why he has a profound fondness for Patek Philippe, the craziest shoe demands he’s consistently gotten, and that time that Daniel Day Lewis requested that his father be in an honor prevailing upon film lunch. Yeah, this is a wild one.
We hope you appreciate Episode 41 of HODINKEE Radio. Check out the show notes underneath and let us understand what you think in the comments.
While George’s preference regarding fake watch prices has advanced throughout the long term, he’s as of late wound up floating for the most part to treated steel sport fake watch prices on arm bands. Combine that with his long-lasting adoration for Patek Philippe and it’s likely nothing unexpected that the fake watch prices he wears most is a ref. 5711 Nautilus. In the wake of playing with some more maximalist styles, he adores how pared back the Nautilus is and how it does a ton with a bit. Most days you’ll discover George in a suit (shod in delightful handmade shoes, obviously) and he prefers that the Nautilus can be worn joyful yet at the same time looks exquisite and set up. How he wound up with this specific piece is a story all its own, yet you’ll have to tune in to the scene for the full scoop.
