March 8 – 9
10 am – 6 pm

Headquartered in Austria and made in Romania, all Saint Crispin’s shoes are handcrafted by a small team of artisans. Their shoes are quite possibly as close to a bespoke fit as you will find in a ready to wear shoe. While that may sound like a big statement, in our opinion these shoes are top flight all the way.

The attention to detail is evident in all aspects of the shoes, not least of which is the fit. Saint Crispin’s designs their shoes with human engineering in mind. The heels are canted, which means the outside of the heel is slightly lower than the inside, as is the top line under the ankles, thus cradling your foot’s natural resting position.

The company’s business model is based on custom shoe orders, as such you will be offered a wide variety of models, leathers, and fits including individualized lasts. Your shoes will be delivered to you in approximately 8-10 weeks.

Appointments suggested.

The Fold restock

The Fold wallet
The Fold wallet

A wise old gambler once said, “You gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em.” Sage advice, no doubt, and exactly what our Fold wallets are all about.

These svelte sheaths are about as low tech as you can get: just a single piece of Horween shell cordovan, three folds, and voila — your cash is snugly secured in horse ass leather for safekeeping. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Small: 2.5″ x 2.75″ folded, fits U.S. Dollars and no credit cards
Large: 2.5″ x 3.5″ folded, fits all international currencies plus a credit card or two
