Pierre Corthay Arca Boucle

The Corthay Arca Boucle is younger than it sibling derby but it’s been quite a favorite. I think it’s interesting to look at the same shoe in a variety of colors. Color provokes powerful emotions, which are different in each of us. You may not like a particular shoe when seen in an unappealing color and assume you don’t like the model but when seen in “your” color it’s a new shoe entirely.

I applaud those guys that have the vision to see a shoe in their mind and go for it. Isn’t that what made to order is all about?

From time to time we present MTO shoes that have been made in several different colors.

Cherry Red and Granny Apple piping – MTO

Red/Green - Leffot

Veau Lie d Vin – MTO

Veau Lie de Vin - Leffot

Bergeronette Box – MTO

Bergeronette Box - Leffot

Bois de Rose – MTO

Bois de Rose - Leffot

Come to think of it we did the same in the Sandringham post below.

Gaziano & Girling Spring 2009 Trunk Show

We are pleased to inform you that Tony Gaziano will be presenting the G&G made-to-order and bespoke collections at Leffot on April 21st from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Our past show with Dean Girling was quite a fun event for the true lover of fine footwear, and we anticipate this show to be equally as enjoyable.

The event is open to anyone, however we do ask that you please contact Leffot to schedule an appointment if you plan on attending. This will help us better serve you.

In case you haven’t been to a trunk show before it works like this. G&G will have “Sample” single shoes of which you can then choose the leather, color, last, soles and perhaps a few minor changes i.e. adding a medallion to a plain toe shoe for instance. Trunk shows provide an excellent opportunity to view many styles in hand as opposed to looking at them on line or in a catalog.

Once you decide on a particular pair a deposit is taken and the shoes go into production. The balance is paid when the shoes arrive. It’s very straightforward.

We have already begun to receive a great deal of interest in this show. You can contact me for an appointment at: or by phone at 212-989-4577.

We hope to see you there.
