It has been a strange time for all of us and we hope you have all kept safe and well.
We want to thank our customers for their continued support during the lockdown and wanted to inform you of the safety precautions Joseph Cheaney & Sons are taking to ensure the health and wellbeing of our store staff and customers going forward as this is of paramount importance to us.
Available in our Leeds store is our artisan polishing service, whereby we invite customers to drop off their Cheaney shoes and boots for a bespoke clean and polish. Customers can also request a professional Mirror Shine finish on suitable styles and all services are completely complimentary. This service operates on a drop-in basis, with a turnaround time of 3-5 working days although this may vary slightly due to demand. For further information, speak to one of our dedicated in store members of the team.
Fin began his extensive career in retail and fashion at a traditional men’s outfitters at the age of 16. After many years with world-renowned brands in men’s tailoring, Fin comments that he went on to having a period of time working in a vintage store and that sparked his interest in product’s that were built to last and offered value for money. The integrity of a product that could be reused and had a lower cost-per-wear due to quality and construction meant that said products refuted the notion of buying trends within a fast-fashion landscape and this was something that resonated strongly with Fin. It was this, coupled with our rich history and heritage that lead to him starting his career with Cheaney 3 years ago. Fin states, “I guess you could say I’ve always been obsessed with clothing and personal style, I wouldn’t know what else to do for a career. You have a connection with made to measure tailoring and shoes as it’s all about the fit, the aesthetic and the craftsmanship. You need to be clued up on a lot of things and for me, it’s the complete opposite to some of my retail friends who don’t have as hands-on approach to advising their customers and it’s more of a mechanical transaction.“ For Fin’s personal style, he tends to prefer classic style footwear that shows the traditional ‘Cheaney DNA’ as they ‘just feel indestructible on your feet’.
