All’s Well That Adwell

When I first saw a sample of this shoe I thought, “Wow this is a really “dumb” shoe.” In the “shoe business” a shoe of this sort is referred to that way. It’s not a negative connotation in fact I meant it as a complement. It’s basic, simple, a bit old fashioned, even orthopedic and yet it has a certain style and coolness to it.

Mama used to say, “Simple is as simple does”. So why mess with it? The Adwell by Church’s is not just a new model it’s a departure from the traditional English shoes we’re used to. “Old” is the new “New”.

Borsalino’s All Together

Our latest email newsletter has generated a great deal of interest in our Borsalino hats. I thought it might make it easier to show all the styles we currently have in stock for summer.

Please contact use for size information. It helps a lot if you’ve worn Borsalino and know you size. Our apologies but some sizes are no longer available.

Take a Hike

Imagine trekking through the Alps or for that matter the Street of New York when the boots you’re wearing start wearing you out. The Traiano hiking boots by Church’s are cut generously in width to accommodate heavy socks and are surprisingly light in weight.

The deep grooved soles afford superb traction on snow or ice and the back calf leather stands up to the elements very well. These boots come with both yellow and brown laces although for me it’s only yellow…..

Groom Kits Redux

We had such great response to the La Cordonnerie Anglaise Groom Kits that we sold them out. We just received another of the Ebony Boxes, which includes 6 brushes, 1 shoehorn, 1 renovator, 1 Shampoo, 2 waxes, and 1 chamois; and measures 22.5×19×15 cm.

We also received a Black Leather travel kit, which includes 2 jars of polish, 1 shoehorn, 1 chamois, and 3 brushes.

These kits are beautifully made and very handsome not to mention a great way to keep your shoes looking their best.
