SINCE BACK IN 2008 when it opened in Manhattan’s West Village, Leffot has been consistently recognized as one of the finest shops in the city for leather shoes and accessories made in Europe, Japan and in the US, thanks to the discerning eye and exquisite taste of owner Steven Taffel. Nestled into a charming block of Christopher Street, where the historic facades are instant reminders of the timeless allure that brings millions of people to NYC every year, Leffot is an essential stop for anyone who truly appreciates quality craftsmanship. When we brought over a trio of jeans from Pure Blue Japan for Steven to pair up with items in his shop–the indigo XX-019, the 1161-BB Double Black, and the XX-012 Double Indigo–we knew the results would be stellar.
