Gaziano & Girling Mayfair and Omega Seamaster

Little needs to be said about the elegance of both the Gaziano & Girling Mayfair and the Omega Seamaster. The Mayfair is a classic double monk strap shoe in Vintage Oak Calfskin. On the soft square MH71 last, it’s both versatile and elegant, and can be paired with anything from jeans all the way to a suit. The Seamaster is circa 1950s and in excellent condition, with a beautiful patina on the dial. Watches that look this good come few and far between.

Gaziano & Girling Mayfair and St. James

Today we received a fresh shipment of Gaziano & Girlings, and aren’t they gorgeous. G&G creates contemporary designs of traditional English shoes bench-made in their factory in Kettering, UK. G&G shoes are distinctive for their superb craftsmanship, meticulous style, and sharp, modern look.

Their Mayfair is a classic double monk strap shoe in Vintage Oak Calfskin. On the soft square MH71 last, they’re both versatile and elegant, and can be paired with anything from jeans all the way to a suit. The St. James is a captoe oxford in Vintage Cherry Calfskin, made on the TG73 last. Wear them with a navy or grey suit and you’ll be the sharpest one in the room.

Saint Crispin’s 505 MTO

Saint Crispin’s makes the double monk strap shoe like it makes every shoe, with its own uniquely European style and flair.

We carry Saint Crispin’s double monk, the 505, in a rich snuff suede, but one of our customers was mesmerized by another unique advantage of Saint Crispin’s shoes: shrunken calfskin. The combination is stunning, if we do say so ourselves.

Our Trunk Show with Saint Crispin’s will be on April 23rd and 24th this spring. Please stop by to order shoes like the one’s below.
