We received some beautiful MTO’s from Edward Green yesterday. I am posting them today because I think it’s only fair the client has the first look (actually I have the first look but as your trusted adviser it’s a professional privilege). I’ve posted a few Corthay MTO’s but I believe these are the first Edward Green’s. So without further delay…….
Mr. R has created a unique version of the Newbury. To this whole cut oxford he added the winged toecap of the Southwold. This pair is in Acorn Antique with heavy burnishing, on the 888 last. Mr. R also likes his belts to match so we had one made for him as well.
Mr. C is a true shoe maven not only does he know shoes inside and out he has the vision to see how they’ll look. Take for instance this pair of Dover’s in Maple Antique on the 606 last with double leather soles. It took vision to see it in this color. It is the most beautiful Dover I’ve seen.
Mr. C also loves his monk straps as well as his stitched aprons. These Ashby’s in Burgundy Antique are also on the 606 last and very handsome. This color is perfectly suited to the shoe. I particularly like the heavy burnishing on this pair.
Edward Green MTO’s generally take 14 weeks according to the company. These pairs were ordered during the summer, which means they took longer since the factory is closed most of August. Nonetheless they are always worth the wait.
We just received these MTO’s from Pierre Corthay for our customer Mr. D. These are size 11 of which he has several pairs of already. The production and delivery were very fast, the order was placed with Corthay on Oct 3 and we received them Oct 30.
The Bucy – Ebene Calf on the 001 Last
The Arca – Black Calf on the 001 Last
This MTO (made to order) pair of Corthay Mahler’s just arrived for our client Stuart. He’s a big Corthay fan and in fact brought this style to my attention.
He really did his homework on this one, you won’t find these on the Corthay website. This is the image he brought in.
The order for this pair was placed with Corthay on May 15 and was completed June 30th.
This loafer is on the 001 last which is the same as the Arca. It has an elastic gore under the tongue and a lace that feeds through it and the suede of the upper.
