A/W Style by Edward Green

I love a good A/W stylized photo for shoes, especially a good shot that has leaves in it just like this one does. It often reminds me of my Autumns in Seattle, which for me is among the most beautiful scenery there is. This shot by Edward green takes me back, way back! But not only that, it is good to see boots in all suede. Suede is so often misconceived to be this delicate material […]

A Proper Winter Boot by Loake

I saw this picture (above) on Instagram yesterday and was extremely impressed not only for the quality of the photography but also the nice looking pair of boots by Loake that IG user @muddy250 was wearing. I dont often post Loake for not being a huge fan of 75% of their stuff but I must say that these look like a top notch boot for what I am sure is a great price. And it […]

Navy Shell Cordovan by Trickers

If you want boots that will last you not only the rest of your life but quite possibly that of your son and maybe even grandson’s life, then what you want to look into is shell cordovan from Horween, made by Trickers. The boots shown in this thread –courtesy of quite possibly the biggest collector of cordovan boots– are the ideal example of one of these boots that will stand the test of time and […]

Timberland x Harris Tweed

  I was walking on Regent st. today and noticed that the Timberland shop had some interesting shoes/boots inside. I am actually in the market for something a bit more heavy duty as I feel that it will be a harsh winter and while I love my Snoqualmie’s for a solid boot, I would rather use something that is actually fur lined and built to handle the snow (on a submerging level). So I went […]

Crockett & Jones A/W Collection Now Shown – Coming Soon

  Summer has only been a month going but for me it feels like it is almost over and I can’t say why but it does. And possibly because you are already seeing A/W stock in the stores. Soon enough S/S will launch in Nov. and A/W will come in April. What is the world coming to? It has become like a race to ‘who launches first’ and thus makes all of the sales. Not […]

Feit Wool Hiker

Okay, so I am now back in Mayfair of London and just going through all of the motions of moving and getting back up to simple organizational standards. But that means that I have had a lot less time for emails, social media and the blog, hence why all of my recent posts have been with minimal writing. I promise that soon it will all be back to normal. Its not to mention that I […]

Septieme Largeur New Winter Stock

The apron toe is going strong around the globe this year and Septieme Largeur offers a boot version that feels ever so slightly different than the rest. I can’t quite pinpoint it though, what it is that makes it different. It might be because of the split at the nose or because the vamp seems a bit more extended with respect to other versions , but either way it is different yet very appealing. I […]

Bespoke Gaziano & Girling Boots – FINISHED!

After much anticipation I have final received my bespoke boots by Gaziano & Girling! (to see the start of this process see HERE and HERE). It’s been a long process and it’s nice to have finally seen the end result and my design realized. From the drawing below, you can see a few changes (such as the extended saddle/facing piece) as well as the shortening of the cap. But these were all things that I […]

Jacques & Demeter – A Cool Take On The Winter Boot

For all of you Longwing lovers out there, I presume that something like these new Jacques & Demeter boots will be just up your alley for a potential winter boot purchase for this upcoming season. The weather is starting to turn for the worse and I find myself gravitating to the thought of boots and flannel. While these shown are not necessarily something that I would wear with flannel, I am lucky enough to be […]
