Real craftsmen are dying off?


November 10, 2014 by Ville Raivio

“It is ironic that luxury products are so prevalent in the world today and yet, at the same time, real luxury and real craftsmanship seems to be going down. Everybody knows Edward Green shoes or Herm├Ęs ties or Drake’s scarves and they’re all very well-made products. But there used to be dozens and dozens of good tailors in New York and now there are maybe half a dozen, and maybe only two or three custom shoemakers in the whole country. Everyone thinks about luxury but real craftsmen are dying off.”
