Herring Shoes – New Model + 40% off to NHS Workers

Some of you may know this shoe, some of you won’t. But it was the shoe that made Brunello Cuccinelli more famous on a worldwide level as upper echelons of society made it their favorite shoe of choice a few years back. It first came around about 4-5 years ago and everyone that had some money owned a pair of these (at least in Europe). They had the pretty pricetag of about £800 if I […]

More Teal Shoes in 2020 – The Next Big Color

Many years back when I was living in London, I visited the John Lobb shop on Jermyn st and found this awesome pair of double monks in dark teal suede. I was immediately enamored with this shoe and probably would have bought it if it was not 5x out of my budget. I had seen teal in patina prior to this shoe but never in an actual pre-dyed suede or leather color. I immediately thought […]

Crockett & Jones Spring 2020 Loafers – Now Live and Electrifying!

It’s a new day and famous English shoemakers, Crockett & Jones, is taking bounds and leaps in 2020, which is very pleasing to see to say the least. I love their new Spring/Summer line up. Probably my favorite collection of theirs that I have seen. Mainly because I am very partial to two of the models: The Braided Loafers and the Butterfly loafers. Two of my all-time favorite loafer styles. So needless to say, my […]

Crockett & Jones Cottesmore – A Suede Jodhpur Setting the Bar!

I have never believed that a boot needed to be worn only through the months of Autumn/Winter although this is how they are always marketed and sold. I can understand this if you live in a tropical climate for 100% of the year but for the rest of us city folk who even if we live in a hot place (like NYC in the Summer) often times spend a lot of our time in an […]

Crockett & Jones – The Ross Boot

Living in a city with often adverse and astronomically dynamic weather, such as NYC where it can change 20 degrees from one day to the next, you really get to appreciate a solid, rugged boot to keep you surviving those rough days. I have always appreciated the Coniston boot by Crockett & Jones, their most famous boot ever produced worn by the thousands on Instagram, but I was more thoroughly impressed when they launched their […]

Gaziano & Girling – 25% off 4 Models for December

Gaziano & Girling doesn’t often go on sale, but it would appear that they are making way for new things as they are discounting 4 models at a nice price of 25% off which leads me to believe they are clearing stock to make room for others! For those that live outside of the EU, this discount puts these four models at £675 (circa $900) which is a crazy good price for a G&G mainline […]
