The Tony II- A Wholecut with a twist

Dear All, A wholecut oxford is sometimes just too classic and predictable but not this one! Our Tony II in Dark Brown Museum Calf and Black presents a nice and sleek alternative to the classic wholecut that, will leave many admiring your feet. The Tony II comes on the LPB last and I feel it gives a lovely silhouette to this model. The fun is in in the ‘bouncy ball’ design which is not something commonly seen. We wanted to design something that has a fun twist yet remaining classic and elegant. Whilst this isn’t going to break records for […]

The Windermere- A Perfect Half Brogue

Dear All, There are some shoes in my collection that are for special occasions or to go with specific outfits and then there are shoes which are the ‘go-to’ shoes for pretty much any outfit. The Windermere half brogue certainly falls into my ‘go-to’ category as a shoe which I can wear confidently with most attires. We have for this SS17 added the Caramel Calf (pics below) which has been very well received as the ideal tan shoe. With tan and different shades of brown becoming more acceptable in the office or work place, I feel our Windermere model has […]

The Lynwood- Our New Hand-Sewn Derby

Dear All, We have long been thinking about hopping on board with a Ready to Wear Derby and the time has now come. We have introduced the Lynwood into this Spring/Summer collection in 6 colours to ensure there is a model for all occasions and outfits. Whilst we know the most famous model is a split-toe Derby, we wanted to keep the front clean and thus not have this feature. The new model also comes on our new last, the SEA last. Features of this last are that it has a more Symmetrical shape from the forefoot to the toe […]

Brown Oxfords- A must have

Dear All, After living in London for only 6 years I have definitely seen a rise in the amount of Men wearing Brown shoes with business attire which makes me happy. Whilst I do agree there is a need to wear Black shoes with some outfits I also think wearing Brown shoes with suits looks far better and should not be frowned upon. There are more shades of Brown leather than one can fathom but a classic ‘Mid-Brown’ shoe is a must have in your shoe collection. Whether it be a classic Cap-Toe Oxford like our Magnolia in Cedar Calf […]

We are excited about the release of the Hawthorne Butterfly Loafer and the 6 colour options. For such an iconic model there is actually not that many brands that offer this shoe in their ready to wear collection. We have taken […]

The Ballard- The Perfect All Year Chukka

Hi All, Finally Spring is coming albeit with the occasional shower still and we are really excited about our new collection. One of our trademarks is to make classic shoes with a twist, and whilst we continue to do this we do also need to keep some of the classics and for good reason. The Re-introduction of our Ballard Chukka Boot was a success, so we are continuing with it but in the more common Snuff Suede. The beauty of this shoe is that it literally works with pretty much any choice of trousers from chinos to jeans. Snuff Suede […]
