Ed Et Al Revamp Round 2
As most of you know, I am always quite pleased to see shoes that have been made with some sort of with fabric/cloth integrated into their upper. This one by Ed Et Al in particular is quite unique as the fabric looks like the weight of a suit cloth, not your typical heavy weight flannel type that is normally used for shoemaking. The pattern is also quite interesting as it is pairing an extended adelaide facing onto a longwing cap, all put onto a slim looking last. Not to mention that it is an oxford as opposed to the darby style that you find most longwings on… I like that about Ed Et Al. They are quite good at taking relatively conservative ideas and harmonizing them with the most subtle modern twist like the shape of an adelaide/cap etc, a unique stitch line or the likes. Forward thinking at it’s finest! They have currently revamped the collection once more, updated the website and added some new models, all the while keeping their RTW pricing at a whopping £150/€180/$240. It’s quite amazing really just how low they cost for what you are getting back. So if you have yet to try one out, it might be worth doing so soon, before they wise up and start charging what they theoretically could for a product of their caliber!
