Edward Green Cardiff, Nutmeg Suede

Contrary to popular opinion, quality suede is one of the most versatile and comfortable shoe leathers you can invest in. We’ve paired Edward Green’s classic captoe Cardiff blucher with fine-grained Nutmeg Suede and leather soles. They pair great with just about any color or texture. We’d wear them with a rumpled linen suit for a comfortable, elegant summer look.

Saint Crispin’s 508HA & 315

Headquartered in Vienna, Saint Crispin’s does not follow the Viennese tradition exclusively but produces a style which is appreciated all over the world.

All shoes are handmade by a small team of artisans — craftsmen and women — who have been highly trained within the company. Some key employees have been employed for nearly 20 years. This continuity reinforces the extremely high level of quality and consistency found in their shoes.

The 315 is a classic captoe oxford model in medium brown calfskin. It’s the kind of shoe that’s easy to wear because it’s so easy on the eyes. If you’re in need of an everyday workhorse, look no further.

The split toe is a classic shoe that’s highly versatile, as it looks organic with suits as well as denim. Saint Crispin’s model 508HA is no exception. We’ve made it on the chiseled last in light brown calfskin, which makes it stand out from your typical dark brown dress shoes. Plus, the handsewing along the vamp and toe make this pair particularly special.
