Last year I interviewed Tony Gaziano for this video, created by Essence Lifestyle (the questions were deliberately removed to create a single narration).

It was interesting talking to Tony in more detail about his early days – beginning on the design side, and then moving into construction because he felt he could “elaborate more on the design through knowledge of the product rather than just drawing pictures”. 

Then onto Edward Green, learning how to make shoes; meeting Dean, as an outworker working for him; and the first bespoke offering, funded by deposits from those wonderful Japanese.
