Crockett & Jones A/W 2020 Collection – ‘Smart Casual’

The Crockett & Jones A/W 2020 collection is impressive, to say the least. It’s vast with an option for everyone and some pretty tasty new models, in particular the new strap boot, the Aldershot.

Happy Thanksgiving + Shoes

First and foremost, I would like to wish all that celebrate, a wonderful Thanksgiving.

My great grandparents made the most amazing gravy and I would drizzle it onto my whole plate…..the good ‘ol days. And as sad […]
