Statos Magazine “Tailor Made for You” March/April 2009
Don’t Forget Footwear… Nothing goes better with a beautiful suit than a pair of custom-made shoes. And handmade shoes from Perry Ercolino are as stylish and stunning as they are supportive and structurally sound. Ercolino will meet with you personally to take measurements and imprints, draft a design and select materials. He’ll have a last – a 3-D model around which your bespoke shoes are built – hand-carved in England. Then he’ll spend more than 60 hours constructing your custom shoes, meeting with you again to make any minor revisions needed before your shoes are soled and finished. When everything is perfect, Ercolino will personally deliver or ship your shoes. It’ll take about 16 weeks, but it’s well worth the wait. Subsequent pairs are handmade in about eight weeks.
