KLG consists of hats, shoes, RTW, and mixes classic with the avant-garde. Producing his crafted shoes in an established Japanese factory, the designer Shintaro Yamamoto has been working in London as an assistant at The Old Curiosity Shop and then at the well-respected factory Asakusa, before finally launching his own brand in 2008.

Inspired by the architecture of London among other aesthetics when he was in London, Shintaro Yamamoto also sets the highest standards of quality and work with Goodyear Welted Construction to develop his shoes. Detail-oriented designs with a chunky look are a strong signature of the brand.
