Back in Five – YM 11/1/13

The shop has been busy, and I haven’t been able to run away. I will also use the Back in Five segment to keep you updated with the happenings at Leather Soul Downtown.

I was able to persuade our very own, YM, to model some of his favorites. He is wearing some new ready-to-wear arrivals paired with his favorite Drake for Leather Soul ties.

Back in Five – TP 10/16/13

Leather Soul will always focus on our client’s shoe needs. But, LSDT is also striving to be a one – stop – shop and outfit you from head to toe. In this Back in Five, I would like to introduce two of our newest ready-to-wear brands, Incotex and Individualized. I was fortunate enough to persuade our very own, TP, to model some of our newest arrivals.

TP is seen wearing a Leather Soul exclusive Individualized shirt and Incotex Super 100’s trousers in dark charcoal grey.

Back in Five – CH 10/09/13

It’s great being right in the heart of Downtown Honolulu. Being such a small community, I get to see and “talk story” with our clients and friends on a regular basis.

This is the first of my hopefully ongoing series of picture sets I will be taking on my quick coffee breaks, hence the title, “Back in Five.” In this first set our friend CH is sporting his newly acquired George Cleverley Thomas double monks in antique tan.

Welcome to Downtown Honolulu, home of LSDT. -Back in Five, Justin.
