Vendome

This Pierre Corthay wingtip has been coming on strong for a while. Normally produced on the 001 last we have also had it made up on the 002, needless to say both are very handsome.

What distinguishes this shoe from more traditional wingtips is the low profile of the wing, a more modern toe medallion, along with the sleek styling, which is synonymous with Pierre; this is a very elegant and sophisticated shoe.

Corthay in Living Color

The Corthay Vendome wingtip has really taken on a life of it’s own recently. I happen to love this model and apparently so do several others. What I really love is when someone does a shoe in a unique color. Here are two pair of Vendome MTO’s that fit the bill.

Edward Green MTO part II

Enough spectators for now. As promised here are some other EG MTO’s we received last week.

The Shannon in Midnight Blue Calf and Blue Suede Shaft on the 888 last

And for all the Cordovan lovers Edward Green as produced the following by special request:

The Westwood in Whiskey Crup on the 888 Last

The Holburn in Burgundy Crup on the 888 Last with Double Sole (Now being changed to HAF soles)

The cordovan on these shoes are not only beautiful but supple as well,  a true treat for the lover of cordovan.
