I remember trips with my Father when I was about 10 years old to a menswear brick at mortar establishment named Graham’s, and a shoe storefront named Paramount Bootery. Both places were at the local downtown promenade. My father frequented both locations for his clothing and especially shoes, Florsheim Royal Imperials were the shoes to buy. He had every color and different models but the ones that stood out to me were the shell cordovan royal imperials which I still have today. Shoes, leather goods and all things quality made by hand in general have always been a huge inspiration in my life.
