Edward Green Oundle

Not all Made to Order shoes are equal. There are certain styles, which we’ve made more often than others and the Oundle monk strap shoe by Edward Green is one of them.

It’s one of those shoes that deserves a second look it’s simple yet stylish and that’s exactly what we like about it. Made of only three pieces of leather these shoes can be made with or without a medallion on the toe.

Gaziano & Girling MTO

It’s always a treat when we receive made to order shoes by Gaziano & Girling. Their shoes are finely crafted works of art. That may sound clichéd but hey if the cliché fits….

I’ve written here many times about my love of wingtips. But man does not live by wingtips alone otherwise it would be a very singular existence. The counter weight to the Wingtip is the Cap toe, a quieter more serious shoe, Bud Abbott to Lou Costello if you will. Cap toes are timeless and appropriate for nearly any social function.

Edward Green makes a number of cap toe shoes and we stock our share of them including the Chelsea the all time number one cap toe oxford.

A more contemporary oxford is the Midford, a perforated cap toe that is lighter looking because the cap is sewn into the vamp.

For those looking to up their style quotient the Westminster double monk strap is classic, sophisticated and versatile. These shoes look great with everything from jeans to suits and add a bit of swagger to your wardrobe.

To see these and many other EG styles join us May 5th at our Edward Green trunk show. It’s also our 3rd Anniversary and we’ll be unveiling our first ever Anniversary shoe made in collaboration with EG. We hope to see you there.

Gaziano & Girling Deco Range

Earlier this year Gaziano & Girling introduced a new range of shoes, which they’ve named Deco*. The name comes from their “Interpretation of 1920’s and 1930’s high society footwear.” What makes this range special is the additional hand making and bespoke quality materials that goes into every pair. These shoes are as close to bespoke as you can get because all of the Deco waists and soles are hand finished, and the uppers are hand lasted.

G&G has designed a new Deco last for the range that all models are made on. The last reintroduces the Spade waist, which is very narrow. There is also a new leather called Deco black, which has a bleached or aged look but all models can be made in any leather. Each pair comes with lasted shoetrees in a bespoke shoebox.

We are pleased to present the New York debut of the Deco range on Thursday April 7th when Tony Gaziano joins us for our spring trunk show. Tony will be accepting orders for Bespoke, Deco and Made to Order pairs, we hope to see you there.
