Sloane, Emily, and Wendy at Peter Nappi

Our sweet friends Emily and Sloane stopped by the Studio for a visit with new kid in town Wendy Southard. Persol sunnies and a onesie are the perfect thing to wear to an important nap.

Kolbeinn Bjornsson meets an Icelandic flag and a pair of Stefano boots; we meet a high tech foot. Everybody wins.

Most people mistake the antique flag on our back wall for Sweden’s or Finland’s, and because of that we’ve won a lot of bets. But Icelander Kolbeinn Bjornsson made a beeline for the wall when he came in for a pair of boots last week, saying “I never see the pre-contemporary Icelandic flag anywhere!” Kolbeinn designs advanced prosthetic technology and made a detour on his way to a conference to come through Nashville and visit the studio, braving an epic thunderstorm in the process. What are the odds? Kolbeinn, we appreciate and salute you. Way to ruin our betting streak.

Mickey Raphael, Dave Roe, Bucky Baxter, Marco Giovino, and Jim Oblon

One of our favorite things about living in Nashville is gathering friends and family in the shop to listen to Mickey, Bucky, Dave, Marco, and Jim. How many towns are there where guys from the bands of Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Robert Plant, and Paul Simon play the local boot store? Could we be luckier? Could their music make us happier? Could we love them more? Nope.
