We have just received a re-order of the iconic Pierre Corthay two-eyelet derby “The Arca”. We now have solid Black Calf with Purple linings and Ardillat/Black calf a very unique color that was made for us on request. We received only eight pair of each color one per size from 8-12.

Men will always be boys at heart. There was a great black and white Mercedes Benz commercial called “Candy Store” where a boy stands in awe in his childhood candy store and is next seen as a grown boy/man in a Mercedes dealership. That same look of wonder and amazement never leaves his face. The [...]
Welcome to 2009, this is a good time to take stock of your shoe inventory, what you still wear and what you don’t. A basic shoe collection should consist of 3 to 4 pairs for dress and casual wear, and should of course be in good condition and worn in rotation. I recommend one pair [...]
Some treat themselves and some buy for others, either way it’s a great gift. Here are a few shoes that were purchased as Christmas treats.
Our latest MTO’s were personally hand delivered by Pierre Corthay himself this past weekend. The request was for a pair of Arca’s with a Violet base color and then heavily colored with black and black laces. The customers desired effect was to have them look like Japanese eggplants, which I think, was most effectively achieved. [...]
Wow what a great show, our sincere thanks to Pierre for bringing an amazing collection of shoes. I would also like to thank those loyal clients that once again came out to “Just take a look” but as usual ended up ordering something, you will not be disappointed. For those who could not attend we’ll [...]
I would like to remind you that we will be hosting our trunk show for Pierre Corthay tomorrow Saturday December 13 from 11-6. Pierre was recently awarded the honor of “Master of Art” by the government of France and I am sure you will enjoy viewing his collection of ready to wear and bespoke models. [...]
Our latest MTO arrival is from Pierre Corthay. This is the Wilfrid in black calf and black suede, a very elegant combination. The suede reminds me somewhat of a pair of spats.
Abel is one of our best Corthay clients, last evening he came in with his Wilfrid’s and looked a little upset. He had fallen victim to the mean streets of New York; it happens. He scuffed the ball of the right shoe taking off some color. Before After We went to work on it with [...]
This week we are featuring the Pierre Corthay “Bucy” in our front window. I like the sleek lines of the Bucy and the fact that it’s a very stylish, & tailored shoe. The last is the same as the Arca the 001. But unlike the simpleness of the Arca the cap toe and punching around [...]
The Byrds said it, “To everything (turn, turn, turn) There is a season (turn, turn, turn)” and like it or not summer is beginning to fade, the air has a fall feel to it and you can begin to notice the change of sunlight, it’s softer and shorter. I’m not complaining I like the fall [...]
I think we would all agree that the purchase a quality pair of shoes is an "investment" in our feet as well as our wardrobe. And like any investment it needs protecting. Thankfully this is not a difficult task. Perhaps the single most important and easiest step we can take is to insert wooden shoetrees [...]
