journal: Side gusset

Gaziano and Girling Barclay

The side-gusset is an often overlooked slip-on style that has made a comeback in recent years. A more formal cousin to the penny loafer, it offers the ease of a slip-on with the style of a brogue.

The Barclay is a side-gusset shoe in mole suede with contrast stitching. Its an incredibly unique shoe that uses contrast subtly but noticeably. Wear it with anything from jeans to a suit to make a very classic yet personal ensemble.

New Edward Green Arrivals

We’ve just received three new Edward Green models, of which two are new designs and one which is new to Leffot. The two new designs are the Claverton on the 82 last in Dark Oak and the Midford also on the 82 last in Black Calf.

I really like the sleeker lines of the 82 last on these two models. It has a much more stylish feel than the 202, it’s very elegant but also perfect for office wear.

The third style is the Ringwood in Edwardian Antique on the 888 last. This butterfly gusset shoe with medallion toe has a very continental boot look to it. It’s a great looking shoe especially with casual slacks such as cords, flannels or jeans.
