A few Recent MTO examples

Dear All, Hope you had a great weekend! We are really enjoying seeing some of the creations our clients are making in their MTO purchases. Some rather bold (like above) and then some a bit more classic but all have their own unique characteristics. Since launching the MTO programme we have seen some really cool models come through which is what we like to see as it always keeps us on our toes to ensure we are designing new things here for our ready to wear stock. If you are thinking about MTO, I would suggest looking at our MTO […]

The Genesee- A Jodphur Boot with a twist

  Dear All, Hope everyone is enjoying the festive period and more importantly enjoying Boot season. The change of seeing more and more boots around town is always interesting at this time of year. There are plenty of the usual chunky, misshaped boots that seem that the arctic would be more suitable and then there are some splendid looking dress boots out there too. Alongside out popular Westlake Button Boot, this year we have launched out version of the historic Jodphur Boot. There are many theories behind how and when this style of boot came about but instead of delving […]

Ballard Chukka Boot- Perfect Wet weather Shoe

Dear All, I have to admit it, winter is fast approaching here in London and its getting cold. There is one benefit to Winter approaching and that is getting our the Winter Wardrobe. It’s time to pull out the knitwear, wool socks, cashmere overcoats and more importantly the winter Boots! Now I am a man of practicality when it comes to Winter attire and especially in my footwear as there is nothing worse than getting dressed in nice shoes with leather soles and stepping outside in the pouring rain to know deep down how much damage its doing. Our New Ballard […]

Samples- where the inspiration starts

  Dear All, Hope you are having a great week. Many of you may or may not know how long it takes to come up with the model that you see in each Ready to wear collection. It is a long process from an idea that Justin has sketched on a piece of paper to the finished article available to buy online or in store. When I worked on Savile Row and Jermyn St in previous jobs, being part of Management I got to see alot of how the design teams came up with garments ready for a collection which […]

Blue Boots – Set to Stun!

More and more bright colors are being used in footwear today and even industries that were notorious for only making shoes in 3 shades (black, brown, burgundy/oxblood) are now implementing patina programs into their ranges. It is great to see as before the idea of patina came around it was rare that you saw this. Getting leathers in these types of colors from the tannery –as a drum dyed leather– is not easy and is mainly done for women’s shoes. But now it is color galore in the industry and it is thanks to the Italian and French shoemakers who […]

Variations of the Wedgwood

Originally when designing my balmoral boot, the Wedgwood, I wanted something without a cap on it. But as I knew that not everyone would share my same interest, I made some other models that shared the same pattern and details as the Wedgwood but with extra detailing added to create new models. That being, the first stage was to turn the stitching on the shaft to become another piece. Then I added a cap. That one was called the Meadowbrook and you can see that above. But then I though, what about all of those people that like a brogued […]

All Black David Boot

Brogued balmoral boots used to be the standard back in the Victorian era and after seeing this one, I am beginning to understand why. Normally I am not the biggest of plain black shoes/boots, but after a customer emailed me up stating that he just wanted a plain black dye job done on our new David boot that is currently undergoing a collaboration with Dandy Shoe Care, I can see the appeal now after a high shine is added. And while I normally also avoid having too many plain black shoes in my RTW collection, after seeing this one, I […]
