Corthay Shop Visit S/S2017 – Motcombe St. London

DSCF1901

I recently had my bi-annual trip to Corthay of London, on Motcombe st in Knightsbridge, to see what was happening for Spring/Summer 2017 and had some intersting findings. Not everything was to my personal liking but what was interesting about it (particularly all of the pony hair shoes/boots) was that it really shows that there is truly a market for everything, no matter how crazy it might be!! Apparently the pony haired boots have been extremely sought after by their client base and while I cannot see the appeal, I can’t argue with what makes financial sense to them. After all, while sprouting from an artisan shoemaker, Corthay has come a long way in their quest to sit among the designer brands and rub shoulders with the likes of Berluti, LV and the like, being known by many customers whom simply seek a high price tag and a well know name. So they have achieved their success in that regards and that success comes at the price of making pony haired shoes for the guys driving their yellow Lamborghini’s in Knightsbridge.

But aside from the pony haired shoes, Corthay keeps to their original ethos of elegant ghillies, sharply shaped monkstraps, brilliant French shoe design and sleek chukkas. There is a good balance of something for everyone in their collections, never truly straying too far to one side but always offering a bit of classic, a bit of bold and then a bit of over the top (for those who like that). But hey, to each his own. I love the ghillies, the Brighton tassel loafer is killer, the chukka’s are a no brainer, the monkstrap is very cool with it’s red accent, the Wilfred is one of my all time favorite oxfords ever, the super French design string balmoral loafer is out of this world cool, and I ever appreciate the oxford with the patent leather accent for something unique. And that is what I love about Corthay: their level of design and detail is often unparalled by few!

If around Knightsbridge, pop in the shop and check the out the collection!

    dude, do you ever proofread your writing before posting. The sentence structure and grammar is baffling! Your premises and conclusions barely hang together by a string of chewing gum!
    And the spelling! “intersting [sic]”, what is that exactly!?
    “their level of design and detail is often unparalled [sic] by few!”, that doesn’t even make sense!!! It’s just “unparallelled”.
    This level of writing shows a tremendous lack of respect for the reader.

    • TheShoeSnob

      Stop reading then. Dont have time for proofreading and I am a blogger not a writer. I often have little time for blog posts and do my best to give to my readers by creating content with what little time I do have. If they dont like it then so be it.

      • zatara wood

        That reply sums up Justins attitude in a nutshell. Arrogant, careless and a complete
        (shoe K)nob. He’s not a blogger apparently but he uses this platform to market
        his business. You’d think this would make it more important to him, not less
        so. That’s putting aside the fact he tried to use the blog to eBeg as he didnt
        want to pay for it as a business cost. Did I mention how tight the guy is. This
        all explains why his first wife walked out and why the replacement will do too.
        Just stop coming to this useless blog dude, he has no style or taste, I mean
        look at the multicoloured silly shoes he creates. Youd do better in a pair of
        eccos as at least people wouldnt point and laugh at what a wanker you looked in
        this clown shoes. I only come here for a laugh LoL

          Hello Anand Shah. Very interesting post history you have here. It seems you’ve been very angry since losing your job a couple of years ago. Are you OK?

          I wonder what kind of web page I can make with the info I know about you.

          Do people know you harass people online? And leave hateful comments day after day? Do they know that you frequent Pick Up Artists sites and ask bloggers how you can meet women? Do they know that you once had to turn your underwear inside out in Italy because you didn’t pack enough, but also couldn’t afford to go to the laundromat (or, apparently, buy new underwear)? Do they know the dirty little secrets you post under various fake accounts online?

          I have some pretty good stuff on you. I think it’ll make for a good web page, so that it pops up when people do a search for Anand Shah in London. Should I include your various social media accounts, both real and fake? Maybe I’ll include screenshots of all these comments (don’t bother deleting them, I have them saved). Just so people know this is true.

          Trolls are interesting. Sometimes I wonder if they would behave the same way if they had to put up their face and name with their comments. That little bearded face of yours will look quite good with all the posting history you have here, don’t you think? Maybe employers and friends ought to know what you act like behind closed doors.

          • TheShoeSnob

            Blue you are amazing! Thank you for calling him out to light and now I know just who it is. Such a sad world we live in today with people like this. Again, I appreciate you doing this as I hopefully now won’t have to deal with his commentary.

            And to you Anand, you should hope we dont cross paths again now that I know it’s you. Many of your comments were way out of line (mentioning my family) and I don’t take kindly to that. And just because your business failed and you hate your life doesn’t mean you should go around trying to belittle others. Shame on you.

          • Blue

            Hilarious that you knew who he was in real life. What a character. I just assumed he was some troll who hid under anonymity.

            Anand, quite seriously, if I catch you trolling this site again, I’ll take all the material I have on you and create a web page. I’m not at all joking. I know who you are and have a lot of info about you. I think you have issues. Crazy to think that you got into clothes about five years ago, and now you’re some expert? You troll Justin about his sense of taste, but just a couple of years ago, I remember you asking if you should buy an H-logo Hermes belt. Hilarious. That belt is the height of bad taste.

            I don’t have an issue with what you buy. Or what you like. Just don’t be a dick on the internet. If you want to be one, then attach your name. Let everyone know your real character. If not, I’ll happily attach it for you so that people can find your posting history when they Google you. And trust me, people will Google you. (Have all your posts in screenshots from around the internet, so don’t bother covering up your tracks).

            Also, the hilarity of you saying Justin has a bad business when yours actually failed. Incredible.

            My genuine and sincere suggestion is that you need to see a therapist. I’m not trying to be hurtful here, but I think you have serious issues. You’re clearly angry about a lot of stuff. Go talk to a therapist. You’ll likely be better able to attract women when you’re not secretly a seething asshole. It’ll do more for you than your watch, cologne, and “pick up artist” obsessions. Plus, you’ll be happier. Life is too short to be so angry and bitter all the time.

          • TheShoeSnob

            yea what’s ever weirder is that he used to come to me for advice and ask to have coffee with me and visit my shine stand way back when quite often. Apparently he got bitter at me for something, maybe because I did not respond to his last email or he hates to see me doing well…anyway, I appreciate what you have done. Thank you

          • zatara wood

            ‘Blue’, you’ll be interested to know that I really don’t give a f8ck what you may have picked up about me from reading my back posts. I stand behind everything I have said in the past and don’t care who knows it. In fact the more people that hear my opinions the better as far as I’m concerned.
            Its sad that you went to all this trouble really but shows what an empty pathetic life you probably lead as an underpaid IT geek. Well at least Justin seems pleased about this research you’ve done so maybe he’ll give you a discount on a pair on blue two tone shoes 😉 By the way who the hell would be interested in looking at a website about me for gods sake! Is this the best threat an IT geek has to offer? Hilarious stuff LoL
            I would say to tread carefully though, if you’ve been naughty and been looking at data you shouldn’t be I may have to take up the issue with the police / courts who probably wont take kindly to it. Note youll drag your friend Justin into it as well as he’s now complicit in it all. I just hope he has the money to hire the legal help! If you had done proper research on me youd have realised that this can only go one way 🙂

          • Blue

            Hi Anand,

            Great! Sounds this will be fun for everyone then. Nothing illegal about outing trolls (Google violentacrez).

            As far as whether that’s the best I have to offer, yes it is. I’m not planning to physically attack you or anything. Just create a page where people can find your post history. As you just wrote: “I stand behind everything I have said in the past and don’t care who knows it. In fact the more people that hear my opinions the better as far as I’m concerned.”

            So looks like I’ll help! I’m sure employers, business partners and friends would like to know they’re dealing with an unstable person. You have a very interesting online history in harassing and stalking people, as well as some weird things on websites about women. That should be known, yeah?

            By the way, from your social media accounts, looks like you could use better tailoring. Stop buying ugly ready-to-wear clothes that don’t fit. Or dressing like the iGents you keep making fun of. Good thing this is timeless style though cause it’ll be up on the internet forever!

          • TheShoeSnob

            Hey Blue, cant help but think that Ape Mcgee is Anand’s new alias. I could be wrong and you would know better with your skills in IT but if it is, it means that he is clearly still trolling me. I would love to see you make good on that website if it is him in order to out this character and show the world who he is really is….IP addresses show similar locations if I understood correctly.

          • Blue

            It’s definitely him. So is “James” above. They all share the same IP address. Guy is too much of a knob to know how to cover up his tracks.

            Working on that website now, actually. Will contact you later from this account. Don’t reply to anyone pretending it’s me. Maybe Anand will try to make some fake account and try to get info out of you. You’ll know it’s me because I’ll contact you from this account.

          • TheShoeSnob

            Sounds good to me

          • Ape Mcgee

            Sounds good to me too Blue. Make sure he chucks in a pair of those ghastly blue two-tones!

          • Blue

            I don’t wear two toned shoes. Or any of Justin’s shoes. I just like fucking with trolls.

            And who says “ghastly?” Are you on Downton Abbey?

          • Ape Mcgee

            Good comeback! I find our congress on this one point encouraging: I don’t blame you at all for not wearing his “creations”…if you can call a GG lasted spanish shoe with all the appeal of the ebola virus a “creation”.

          • Blue

            Anand, I’m worried about you. Are you OK? You seem to spend a lot of time looking up information on how to talk to women. A show of some of the videos you watch on YouTube:

            How to Flirt with a Girl

            On StyleForum, where you post under the username dandy1, you ask people how to buy crap like H-logo Hermes belts, presumably because you think a woman might talk to you if you have one. And Gucci loafers? Maybe if you wear a pair of those, women will finally talk to you?

            Have you ever considered that your personality needs work? And not your wardrobe? That you’re a mentally unstable person?

            For all the trolling you do on this site, your eBay account (anandshah123) sells ugly Chester Barrie double breasted blazers and Crockett & Jones double monks. Seems weird for you to rant on and on about iGents, no? You dress exactly like one.

            Do employers and women know about your history? Have you found a job since losing your last one? Should they be able to find your unstable, semi-violent history online (as well as your unhealthy obsession with stalking women)? Maybe they can find it if they look up your email address — anandshah1@hotmail.co.uk — and name (Anand Shah in London).

            What do you think?

          • Ape Mcgee

            Hmmm I’m not sure what to think Blue. I have no perspective on your hackneyed and unsubstantiated claims! I am concerned about your mental stability though. Empty threats about creating a website- that will almost be as amateur as this one, not to mention the time required from someone of your no doubt de minimis ability-is certainly a cause for concern.

            What’s funny is the amount of effort you’ve spent in mischaracterising me, in order to avoid the harsh but undeniable truth that Justin’s writing (like his footwear) is like something out of a badly written comedy, it lends itself to parody! It IS parody!
            Any reasonable reader will take this as given. Save yourself time and effort and just admit it!

          • Blue

            “Hmm” only has two ms.

            Comma after “hmm.”

            Comma after “think.”

            Comma after “stability.”

            Double dash after “website,” not single.

            No comma after “me.” (Odd that you forget to place them where needed, but then randomly insert them where they’re not needed. Do you know how to use commas?)

            First sentence of second paragraph is really badly written. There are too many clauses. It should just be broken up into something like: “What’s funny is the amount of effort you’ve spent in mischaracterising me. It’s seemingly in an effort to avoid the harsh, undeniable truth that Justin’s writing is like something out of of badly written comedy (much like his footwear). It is a parody!”

            Second sentence should be deleted. If you’re saying it’s like something out of a comedy, but then saying it is a parody, that’s a contradiction. Is it like something or is it that thing?

            How are you so bad at writing? You criticizing someone for their writing skills, while at time unable to construct a proper paragraph, is in fact a comedy. Did you stop going to school at the age of ten?

            I just saw photos of your flat, Anand. Really old place with gross, peeling wallpaper. Flowery designs, as though you live with your grandmother. How is it possible that you’re in your 30s, but sleep on a twin bed? Do you never have company? Also, once you sell your double monks, maybe consider using that money to upgrade your desk? Good God, that thing looks like it was bought at a salvage yard. With your monitor set on top of a bunch of old books. Can’t you afford a proper stand?

            Website will be great. Will paint a portrait of a sad man in Huntsman RTW and Crockett & Jones shoes, which he found out about on the internet. A guy who bought those clothes despite living in one of the saddest flats in London. Seems like he bought them to attract women, who he wishes to meet at bus stops. However, when nothing happened — and he was left to sleep alone in that saggy, twin bed — he got upset at menswear bloggers. Between that and looking up weird YouTube videos about how to pick up women, I think employers ought to know your mental state.

            Hahahaha! Blue two-tone shoes! This epitomises the debasement of high-end footwear from J.Fitzpatrick (not that these spanish bit of skin constitute such).
            Anyway, I digress-
            Justin, I don’t quite get your statement “I’m a blogger not a writer”…do you just create your own grammatical categories in your head for things when in suits you!? Astonishing! [I can’t write proper english, no worries! I’ma blogger, not a writer!!!]
            Your standards are necessarily low. For you, a successful sentence is simply one in which subject and predicate appear. They don’t have to match! The sentence doesn’t have to make sense or read well! Words don’t have to be spelled correctly! Grammar? None of that highfalutin nonsense!

          • Ape Mcgee

            Ah! I see what you’ve tried to do there Blue. Thanks for pointing out some of my typos though. I’ll be sure to proofread comments more carefully in future. Some of your corrections are, ironically, incorrect or moot, though: no “a” is required before “subject” for instance. I recommend you (and, a fortiori, Justin) pick up a copy of Gwynne’s Grammar. You’ll find it most useful…I’ll probably have another read myself!!

            Let’s assess your approach though, which is far more troubling. You’ve painstakingly gone through my comment and helpfully provided errata. But you don’t apply the same approach to Justin’s blog! You inconsistency is phenomenal!! It takes a ‘special’ sleight of mind to pull that off.
            Note that I haven’t picked up on the errors in his comments, because it’s more like a dialogue.

            I do take your corrections (the ones that are actually correct) on board though. Unlike our illiterate host here, who simply fobs off any responsibility for the horse manure prose contained in this blog.

          • Blue

            No, I agree Justin’s writing often has typos. It just doesn’t bother me that much.

            I was just surprised you made a big deal out of it given how bad you are at writing. It’s like Anand Shah making a big deal of Justin’s love life (which, as I understand, he’s seeing someone). Anand, on the other hand, has asked bloggers how he can meet women in real life. My favorite comment from him in a post: “Anyone have tips on how I can talk to girls? I don’t really know any in real life and I just want to learn how to talk to one at bus stops or shopping centers.”

            Hope he’s found someone to talk to. I’d be pretty angry too if nobody in real life talked to me.

          • Ape Mcgee

            Fascinating how my reply to this asinine comment has been deleted by The Shoe Knob

          • TheShoeSnob

            Look again. I dont delete comments especially from idiots like you

          • Ape Mcgee

            Thanks Justin, I like how you degenerate into puerile behaviour when criticised. It’s the mark of a mature individual and an entrepreneur…like Trump.

          • TheShoeSnob

            Thats funny. Like the pot calling the kettle black. People criticize me all of the time without being called idiots by me. But you frankly are one and prove it each time you write not only to me but also the other readers. You are not simply criticizing me, you are purposefully trolling now. You remind me of Anand and are probably him with a new alias. Cant put nothing past those good ‘ol trolls! Fyi if you really thought all you did you would simply not the blog. As you see thousands of other people dont care hence why they keep reading. But thats not why you come here. You do so to troll whoch frankly is just sad and pathetic. But please keep wasting your time commenting only to co tinue showing your true character and building my seo at the same time. The haters grow my blog more than those who love me. Have a nice weekend Ape Mcgee

            “It’s” here should be “its.” When you’re using the word as a possessive, it doesn’t have an apostrophe.

            Sorry Blue last comment was meant for Ape….corrected myself here by commenting in the correct place….too much action going on here

          • Ape Mcgee

            HAHAHAA! The incompetence abounds!

          • Blue

            “HAHAHAA” should be “HAHAHA.”

            How much competence is necessary to correctly spell “hahaha?”

          • TheShoeSnob

            I did that double negative just for you, you numptie. Fell right into it. So lame. Step your trolling game up. Your responses are about 3/10

            Its funny how when you want a website built these IT pr8cks want to charge you £500 for one, but when you upset them over their footwear they offer to make you one for free LoL

          • TheShoeSnob

            whats funny is how tough you talk online when you are not tough at all and nothing but a sad little person. All of your emails and visits to me over the years asking me for help and advice and this and that and then slagging me off behind an alias…..are you bipolar mate? You might want to check that out. But at least I know your face now so I can spot you on Regent st. stalking me….and pretty sure if you got the police involved, you would be the one in trouble as you harass people and they don’t take lightly to that. Wanker

            well Justin the issue is one of legality and not one who’s got a little upset. I’ve never acted outside the boundaries of the law in my comments whereas your friend and you are in dangerous waters. If you want to continue go ahead but I warn you that you may end up in court with me.

          • TheShoeSnob

            considering he is still trolling I think that you should do as you said with the site, I would love to see that and expose this sad person as I think the people that know him and think that he is normal deserve to know the real him and who they are choosing to associate with

    Well I came here for 2 or 3 minutes to check out the post on the shoes. I am just learning about men’s fashions and I am building my wardrobe. But the post are really speaking volumes about child like behavior.
    Please keep the reply’s on the subject at hand. If I want drama I can watch TV or get in line at the check out at a grocery store and get a tabloid. If you do not have something constructive to say, then move on or do not follow the person posting the article.

    Justin, beware of arguing with idiots…they have had a lot more practice at this than most people…and good luck with your venture mate…I’ve followed what you were/are doing for a long time and it has aways been positive. Be well…

    • TheShoeSnob

      Thanks for your note Wayne, I do appreciate your kind words and support

    • Ape Mcgee

      Yes Wayne Byrne! those who are able to think and reason consistently, and struggle with poorly written drivel, are idiots! This makes perfect sense! As does a frequent reader such as yourself defending said drivel!

      • Wayne Byrne

        oh dear me…getting upset over grammar/punctuation…have you nothing better to do. I can also think hence why I have a double honours BSc degree in Chemistry and Computer Science plus a masters in Neural Computing/Machine Perception and a masters in teaching. I do understand when to be precise with the written word but ffs it’s a blog, and Justin is busy….as long as his ideas are expressed in a reasonable way who gives a fuck. Chill, and don’t burn the day.

        • Ape Mcgee

          Fair point Wayne. Well done on your academic accoutrements. But you have to agree that this poor level of english does i) show a lack of respect for the reader. ii) hamper the communicative process.

          • Blue

            There should be a comma here after “point.”

            English should be capitalized.

            And since you’re writing a list, there’s no reason to put a period after “reader.”

          • Ape Mcgee

            Thanks Blue, amends made. Hopefully Justin will try not to censor them, you know, given he’s illiterate and wants to save face. How’s that website coming along by the way? I imagine fee paying work is hard to come by when you’re a mediocre web developer?

          • Blue

            Comma after “hopefully.”

            Either a period after “them” or a double dash between “then” and “you” to denote pause.

            Comma after “along.”

            Ape is a good name for you since you write like one.

    Great blog Justin, I’ve enjoyed it for a long time. Its inspiring when men pursue what they love in life. Keep up the great job! – Marcus

    • TheShoeSnob

      Thanks Marcus, I appreciate your comment and kind words!

  • Danny O’Donnell

    I have just discovered your shoes! I absolutely love the style, when I settle on a pair I’ll order and try them out. (Baby steps)

    hi there
    i just want to ask how i can choose the shoes and size and price as well.

    • Ana

      Hello, you can find the info on the website of the maker. Which is http://www.corthay.com/
      But as they don’t sell the shoes online you need to contact them directly and they will help you wil your enquiry.

      I hope this helps.
