Serbian Bespoke Shoemaker – Igor Suhenko

Discovering new shoemakers for me is like a kid discovering a new candy. Although I have known about Igor Suhenko for awhile now, I think that I have only shared his work once in the last few years so thought that I would revisit him. What I love about discovering shoemakers from countries outside of the stereotypical ones that we think of for most bespoke shoemakers is that they often have very different stylistic designs. […]

MTO John Lobb William – Brilliant!!

Just in case you can’t tell, that is green pebble grain on the left….beautiful! The other day I was frequenting my favorite street, Jermyn St. (as I often do), seeing what the haps was on the latest and greatest. I walked by John Lobb’s shop and was blown away by what I was seeing in their window display. Not only was there red suede double monks, but even more unique and impressive was the deep […]

New Summer Selection of Driving Loafers by Hugs & Co.

The sun has finally stayed out longer than 5 minutes here in London, and I am sure that everyone living here is finally at peace after a very long and horrible winter. What this means for us shoe fanatics is that we can now break out our colorful shoes that have been collecting dust in the old wardrobe for the last 8 months! I have always loved a red suede driving loafer, having bought my […]

Edward Green Spring/Summer 2013

I have been meaning to pop into Edward Green for the longest time now and take some snaps of their latest and greatest and the other day I finally managed to do so. I must say that I was terribly impressed by all of the injection of color that they have been doing as of lately. For a company with such a rich history with a strong and loyal client base, who I am sure […]

Shoes Of The Week – Crockett & Jones Olympic Special Editions

Many fashion/clothing companies around London have been doing a special Olympic tribute by creating some article of clothing (within their collection) donning the colors of the Union Jack. And while I am all for patriotism of one’s own country or being proud of where you come from and representing it, there has been a bit of overkill by certain companies and things created that would be good for one day of use, yet cost tons […]

Today’s Favorites – Red Suede Edward Greens

It’s not very often that you see red suede shoes, particularly coming from a company rooted in England. It’s even far less common that you would see someone wearing these down the street. Yet that would be very cool. Apparently these were an MTO order, for a customer at Leffot (of which the pictures are courtesy of). When you think about it this way, there existence under the name Edward Green makes more sense, as […]

Shoes Of The Week

Shoes don’t get much more interesting than this. And who do we have to thank for that? The Japanese and a bespoke shoe firm called Sinner (while I found what I thought to be their website, it did not work?) As I have stated in the past, the French are the masters of color and the Japanese are the masters of being bold and I love them for that. Those red suede, cap-toe, side lace […]
