There’s been a lot of talk about Jimmy Choo on the Kitmeout forum going back to his days prior to his success when Jimmy Choo ran a back street factory in Hackney, before Hackney was fashionable. Take a butchers:

“this is not exactly true because jimmy choo the actual man did produce men’s footwear. i remember as a really young kid going into his factory off of mare street opposite the old cordwainers college and seeing men’s shoes and i think my uncle bought some for the markets. i’ll ask him when i see him next. ”
