I went to my loft, where my shoe overspill is located: yes, I have well over 100 pairs of footwear from Converse and other sport brands to smart shoes from Church’s and Grenson.
I removed the canvas from the sole with a Stanley knife, and on my next visit gave the material to Ellis to send to his strap maker.
I had no real requirements, just that the strap be an authentic OEM Schofield strap to wear on either of my Schofield Watch Company watches. The strap maker had artistic license!
Some time later, I got a message from Ellis asking whether I had received my post yet… More at Quill & Pad.
What a brilliant idea.
