Alden Captoe Bal, Brown Calfskin

If you wear suits regularly, the captoe bal can be a standby, the kind of shoe that will look classic with any relatively formal suit. Wear it as a subtle, classic compliment to a serious wardrobe. If you don’t wear suits on a regular basis, the captoe bal is just the shoe for special occasions. With care, you could wear these to every special occasion and important meeting that you attend for the rest of your life. Either way, you’ll be well dressed.

Gaziano & Girling MTOs

We just got in a shipment of beautiful Gaziano and Girling made to order shoes, so we’d like to take the opportunity to share some of them with you. G&G shoes are distinctive for their superb craftsmanship, meticulous style, and sharp, modern look. You can see all three of these characteristics in the shoes here, all made to order for our clients. Our fall trunk show with Gaziano & Girling is on October 24.

Edward Green MTOs

Edward Green is regarded by many to be “the finest shoes in England for the discerning few.” A more classic English shoe would be hard to find. Having been in business for more than 120 years, Edward Green has become discreetly famous for probably the finest welted shoes. We recently received a shipment of Edward Green made-to-order shoes, and they’re as beautiful and elegant as ever. We present them here for your viewing pleasure. Our fall trunk show with Edward Green will be on October 29 and 30.

What do the numbers and letters inside my shoes mean?

Take a look inside your shoes and you’ll see some numbers and letters that seem to correspond to nothing at all. You probably know how to find your size, and likely your width, too, but what does all that other stuff mean? Let’s find out.
