It is the accuracy and detail inherent in crafted goods that endows them with lasting value. It is the time and attention paid by the carpenter, the seamstress and the tailor that makes this detail possible.

The word ‘bespoke’ gets thrown around a lot these days; so much so that I’m sure most of us have forgotten the real meaning of the term.
For those of us who’ve been taught the value of genuine bespoke goods and know the workmanship and training that go into crafting these one off pieces, having access to custom feels really special.
Luckily for me, I happen to consider Mr. Aaron Cheung a very good friend. As well as working with Australian companies Herringbone and Henry Bucks (not to mention his time with Hong Kong’s The Armoury) Aaron also designs a range of custom leather gloves.
When you go into a consultation with Aaron you’re presented with an array of beautiful leathers (Peccary, Carpincho, Deer Skin and Lamb) in a variety of colours. If choosing shade and texture wasn't hard enough, you're then faced with the tough decision of what style of glove you’d like, from the wrist connection through to lining and how you’d like them stitched.
Aaron takes numerous measurements and within 4 weeks (give or take) you’re presented with an amazing addition to your wardrobe that actually does "fit like a glove".
