I just saw this bit of news over on Leather Soul’s website:

Dear Friends of Leather Soul,

I am extremely pleased to announce that I will be opening a Leather Soul store in Beverly Hills, California!

When I opened my first store back in 2004, I would have never imagined that I would be opening a store on the mainland. I owe it all to you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me throughout the past 5 years.

As things progress I will keep everyone informed as best as I can. As of now, I have secured a wonderful location right in Beverly Hills (next to ample public parking!). I am targeting December or January as an opening date. I am so excited to bring our passion for shoes to Southern California and hope being on the mainland will give us an opportunity to be more accessible to you.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment on this post, email me directly, or give me a call at the shop (808)922-0777.



Congrats to Tom!  I have been buying shoes from his store for a couple of years now, and he’s now much more closer.  I’ll look forward to visiting his new location next time I’m down in that area.
