Spring is in the air and that means lighter colors and textures. Our new Malvern III spectator may be the ultimate spring/summer dress shoe.
Made in Coffee Suede and Beige Twill, these shoes present as subtly contrasted between the materials. Wearing a pair of spectators adds a smart sporty look to basically any seasonal outfit.

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.

The Dover is without doubt the quintessential Edward Green shoe. Tales of its handsewn apron and reverse split toe are legendary and rightfully so. Each is sewn by expert craftsmen who use pigs bristles rather than metal needles.
The preparation of the thread itself is a major undertaking combining several long strands and bonding them with wax then splitting the end of the bristle and lashing the thread to it.
So much of what goes into finely crafted shoes is taken for granted. It’s difficult to appreciate the level of skill, time and artisan-ship it takes to produce a pair if you haven’t seen it first hand. It’s remarkable really that in today’s high tech, automated world there are products which are still made by way of tradition. Something’s are best left unchanged.
Here are several Dover’s, that we recently received for clients. All of which were made to order.

We’ve never met a wingtip we didn’t like but the Edward Green Sandrignham was love at first sight. Masculine and sophisticated this full brogue lays a solid foundation for which to display your habiliments.
These four made to order Sandringham are all incredibly handsome and speak to the versatility of this shoe.

Now that June is here and the days are warming up, it’s time to start wearing shoes barefoot. Today I am wearing my Edward Green Bamford’s. They feel like slippers.
