Captains of Industry, Melbourne’s temple of man-style where you can get a cutthroat shave and a coffee while being fitted in finery, houses the workshop of expert cordwainers James Roberts and Theo Hassett. Their shoes are top of the line. The leathers are premium, including roo and emu, and the techniques used are from the painstaking hand-made-welts-and-stitches school of old. Shoes start at $1200, but you’ll be able to leave them in your will.
