If you read this month's GQ you might have noticed Will Welch's profile on Mark McNairy. Well, it's up on the website and is a seriously great read. With phrases like "the most talked-about cobbler in, what, a century" this is a career changing piece of press for Mark. The article contains some great insight into Mark's roots, production and his buzzed about debut collection for Woolrich Woolen Mills. A big congrats goes out to one of my favorite designers and my friend, Mark McNairy. I think this serves as proof that if you challenge conventions and continue to do what you set out to do in the first place, people will notice.
