This is market week in New York, which means a lot of running around to visit vendors, thus the lag in updates here. As today was our appointment with Edward Green I thought it was appropriate to post my new MTO Falkirk’s. I have yet to wear these but I’m chomping at the bit to do so.
Falkirk 202 Last, Burnt Pine Antique and Almond Country Calf
We received a delivery of Edward Green MTO’s and immediately realized a very interesting coincidence. All of the pairs had a fraternal twin, a mate or partner if you will in the parlance of our times.
This group really got me psyched; there are some very special shoes here.

Here are two more Edward Green MTO’s we received recently. Both beautifully made.
The Oundle by the way has somewhat of a spat look to it when the pant leg drapes the front, a very handsome monk strap.
The Oundle on the 82 Last in Chestnut Antique
The Galway on the 202 Last in Walnut Country Calf on Dainite Soles
This week we have the new Edward Green Midford in Black Calf on the 82 last in our window. I think of this new cap toe as an updated version of the Chelsea. I also like the 82 last, which is more tapered and modern than the traditional 202 last.
In addition we are showing the classic English cashmere scarf and silk tie by Psycho Bunny, as well as the black travel polish kit by La Cordonnerie Anglaise Paris.
