It has been an interesting season this year. First, after much hard and dedicated work, we were finally able to get out our button boot (Westlake) that I had been working on for so long. And it has been very well received in the industry so I was quite happy about that. Thanks to all of you who purchased a pair. It makes me confident now to go out and create a bunch of new colorways in it. And don’t worry, they will start to become a bit more daring for those of you who actually fancy something quite bold. Like a burgundy and quite possibly a green option!

Secondly, I was able to find a way to actually make the button boot with a suede upper, which I am sure some of you were hoping for as I know that not everyone likes cloth in their shoes. I had to source not only a thinner suede but use also a thinner lining. This made the buttons able to be fastened by hand. But I won’t lie and say that it was easy. It is harder than the cloth option. But to make it easier, I have also found a place to source button hooks and will soon order them to sell on our site as a complementary product for those that wish to have one.

Lastly, but not least, I have just released 2 more of our A/W2015 products. This year has been a bit here and there as we had massive delays in Chromexcel leather coming from Horween of the US. And to make it worse, 4 of my new models are using some color of Chromexcel leather. Instead of massively delaying all of my collection I decided to have it trickle in bit by bit. So here are two new models: the Wedgwood in Shaded Merlot/Blue Tweed with a nice double sole, and a new colorway in the Wallingford. I hope that you guys enjoy them!
