Yeossal Gears up for Autumn with new Boot Models!

The Singaporean atelier, Yeossal, who has mainly catered to attire for the Summer Season, as they are based in Singapore where it is never less than 80 degrees F with 90% humidity, has finally branched out and made some boots appealing to their worldwide customer. And I must say they are quite handsome boots indeed! While apparently not available yet (maybe PreOrder via email?), they have started teasing us on Instagram with some of their […]

The Perfect Cap Shine

A lot of people get overzealous with their shoe shining and want to cover the entire toe cap using the cap line as their metric of measurement. The problem with this ideology is pattern making has come a long way since the days of solely very traditional and classic shoes were being made. That means that the cap line is not always the defining indicator of where the toe puff ends. And what that means […]

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 […]

Ed Et Al – Suede Galore!

I really love what Ed Et Al is doing these days.

The only difference is that with Ed Et Al, owning their own factory, they are able to be a bit more […]

Spat Boots by Ed Et Al

We all know how much I love a spat boot, and these beauties are an amazingly fresh version within the spat boot arena, not only for the colors but for all of the brogueing that comes with it. Usually you find that spat boots come in simple cap or plain toe variations with little to no brogueing, but this number here (by Ed Et Al) breaks all of those norms and looks quite cool doing […]

Ed Et Al — Remastered

A good businessman should always do at least one of two things (if not both): treat their employees well and listen to the concerns of their customers in regards to the product or service offering. Edwin Neo, taking into account the reputation of his company Ed Et Al, and the shoes that fall under that brand, did just that and has most recently revamped his shoe offerings in order to fix the concerns laid out by […]

Ed Et Al – Singaporean Shoemakers On The Rise

For a long time now, I have been hearing this name Ed Et Al, whether by chance or by blog readers writing me up to check them out. I figured that since I had more than one reader do so (which shows loyalty, and can only mean good things), I had better look them up and find out more. Now, in doing so, I discovered that they make a nice shoe for a very low […]
