Gaziano & Girling trunk show

Dean Girling is in the house for a trunk show today. He’s brought samples of many new models with him, and they’re all as gorgeous and modern as you’d expect a G&G shoe to be. Drop by anytime before 6 pm to see the shoes and meet Dean.

Riccardo Bestetti Trunk Show, October 16 and 17

You are cordially invited to join us for Riccardo Bestetti’s first US trunk show. Riccardo will be here this Thursday and Friday, October 16 and 17, to take orders for bespoke and made-to-order shoes.

In addition to regular MTOs, Bestetti also offers the Novecento line, which is made to bespoke standards. An existing last is adjusted to fit your foot, and small changes to the shoe’s shape are also possible. Both the Novecento line and standard MTOs are hand welted with a wood-pegged waist, and are made of the highest quality raw materials.

We’ll have a full size run of try-on shoes to assist in determining your size, so if you’ve never worn Bestettis, you’ll be able to get a sense of the shoes’ fit and feel.

We’re excited to bring Riccardo and his fine shoes to New York, and we hope you’ll join us for two special days.

Corthay Trunk Show

Our fall trunk show with Corthay is today from 11 to 7 and tomorrow from 11 to 6. Pierre is arguably one of France’s most dynamic shoemakers; his shoes are elegant and ultra sophisticated, like small works of art. He began his shoemaking career at Les Compagnons du Tour de France, a venerable crafts guild. He later worked for John Lobb Paris before taking over as atelier head at Berluti. In 1990 he struck out on his own and has not looked back.

Pierre will be here to accept custom ready-to-wear and bespoke orders. When a master shoemaker visits it’s a rare opportunity, and one you won’t want to miss.

Stefano Bemer trunk show, October 2 and 3

You are cordially invited to the first New York trunk show featuring the renowned shoes of Stefano Bemer. Tommaso Milani will be here on October 2 and 3 to present the collection.

Offering both bespoke and ready-to-wear, Stefano Bemer shoes are entirely handmade with exacting attention to detail in their workshop in Florence. A variety of leathers are available, ranging from traditional calfskins and shell cordovan to elephant, hippo, shark, and other exotics, all done in the singular Stefano Bemer style. This isn’t an event to miss.

“A shoe is an object which, if of excellent quality, helps us to walk and live more comfortably. When made from high quality materials and using excellent craftsmanship, it becomes a product that pleases us and stands out from the inevitable globalization of brands and industrially manufactured products.”
—Stefano Bemer, 1964 – 2012

Quoddy MTOs

This week we received a shipment of made-to-order shoes from Quoddy. All of Quoddy’s shoes are moccasin stitched, and their method of construction creates a shoe that functions like a glove for your foot. It surrounds your foot in supple leather, and allows your foot muscles, bones, and tendons to support you as they were intended to, while offering protection, cushioning, and style. MTO Quoddys can be customized to your liking from a range of leathers and soles. We present a few here for your viewing pleasure.

William Abraham Trunk Show

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with William Abraham on May 10 from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. Bram Frankel, founder, will be here to present the collection.

Inspired by impeccably tailored suits and exquisite suiting fabric, William Abraham introduces an elegant aesthetic and a distinct sartorial perspective to the world of fine socks for men. Until now, only two options have been available: traditional, old-school socks, or trendy, fashion-statement socks. William Abraham offers an option for the style-savvy gent: fine socks designed with modern elegance and sartorial sophistication.

Knit from nature’s finest noble fibers like cashmere, merino wool, Belize cotton, fil d’ecosse cotton, mulberry silk, and ultra-rare fibers like vicuña and cervelt, the William Abraham collection embodies a continuous search for the world’s finest yarns and craftsmanship.

With by far the widest variety of fine-fabric socks and over-the-calf socks, the William Abraham collection is the fine sock destination for modern elegance and sartorial sophistication.
