Alden Captoe Balmoral, Brown Calfskin

If you wear suits regularly, the captoe balmoral is a standby, the kind of shoe that is classic with any relatively formal suit. Wear it as a subtle compliment to a serious wardrobe.

If you don’t wear suits on a regular basis, the captoe balmoral 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.

Edward Green

Edward Green is regarded by many to make the “finest shoes in England for the discerning few.” We’ve just restocked of some their core collection: the Asquith, Piccadilly, and Chelsea. More classic English shoes would be hard to find.

Made in Northampton for over 125 years, Edward Green’s reputation has been built on elegant, handcrafted shoes. Benchmade for quality and comfort, they are the quintessential Goodyear welted English shoe. Care for them properly, and they’ll easily last fifteen years, if not more.

The Asquith is on the 888 smart square toe last, and the Chelsea is now available on the smart round 82 last.
