*Review of the #matsumoto Craig pair continued*
Reiterating my earlier assertion, this model is slowly becoming my-go-to pair for everyday business meetings and even for dressed down functions. Within my entourage, distinguished collegues and shoe connoisseurs have likened the design to my #JL City II and this speaks volumes for a brand (with almost half a century experience in shoe manufacturing) that is nigh unknown in the West. The good news is that the brand is slowly making wave and gaining access into the European market with the organisation of trunk shows here and there to create brand awareness.
In summary, the Craig is an all-round pair that ticks all the boxes for formal functions, dressed down occasions, special luncheon events at the Vic. In all fairness, the Craig has distinguished itself amongst others in my shoe rotation and it seems I have many happy days ahead to get the best of it. I am delighted to have given this brand a fair chance to make something for me. I am pretty much a conservative and loyal to British shoe manufacturers, however on this occasion, I am elated I ventured out as the experience is comforting.
*The only inconsequential side remark I will make is that the brand does not offer shoe trees as you will have to look out to other shoe brands to provide you with this extra service*. Thank you @oriental_shoemaker for rolling out this model, a true staple. What a pleasure it was to have worked with you 🤝. #suitsurmesur #monsieurdikeinspired #matsumoto #orientalshoes #bresciani #meschaussettesrouges
