To mark their 120th anniversary Edward Green has released a second limited edition shoe the Brummell. This handsome new oxford is named after the notorious Regency dandy, Beau Brummell, who now surveys their London shop from his pedestal on the other side of Jermyn Street.
George Beau Brummell, pioneered new ways to dress in Regency London, introducing not only the suit, collar and tie but a real connoisseurs sartorial spirit, which continues to inspire today. “We owe to Brummell the demonstration of how much elegant life is tied to the perfection of all human society,” was how Honoré de Balzac saw Brummell’s contribution.
The Brummell sports a medallion punch drawn from EG’s 1930s archive and is on the slim, elegant 82 last. Available in Edwardian Antique we believe the Brummell will very much appeal to today’s Sartorialist.
Each pair is marked with its own Special Edition number, and comes with 120th anniversary trees, in its own commemorative drawer box.
