Edward Green Top Drawer

We hope to see many of you at the Edward Green trunk show tomorrow. Edward Green shoes are renowned for their fine craftsmanship and excellent fit, but Top Drawer shoes take it to the next level. They are the pinnacle of their collection.

Most Edward Green models can be crafted TD, which features Cuban heels, tighter and pronounced beveled waist, spade soles and finely turned edges at the waist. Not only are TD shoes extremely elegant and finely crafted, they fit the feet unlike any other EG ready to wear shoe.

If you’ve never had the opportunity to try a pair of Edward Green shoes you owe it to do so. If you are a long time wearer, why not make your next pair Top Drawer.

Edward Green Dover

The Dover is without doubt the quintessential Edward Green shoe. Tales of its handsewn apron and reverse split toe are legendary and rightfully so. Each is sewn by expert craftsmen who use pigs bristles rather than metal needles.

The preparation of the thread itself is a major undertaking combining several long strands and bonding them with wax then splitting the end of the bristle and lashing the thread to it.

So much of what goes into finely crafted shoes is taken for granted. It’s difficult to appreciate the level of skill, time and artisan-ship it takes to produce a pair if you haven’t seen it first hand. It’s remarkable really that in today’s high tech, automated world there are products which are still made by way of tradition. Something’s are best left unchanged.

Here are several Dover’s, that we recently received for clients. All of which were made to order.

Pining for Green

Edward Green MTO’s this time the theme being Burnt Pine Antique. It’s uncanny how great minds think alike. These gentlemen placed their orders individually and yet they’re of a similar mind, are they not?

Burnt Pine Antique is a very popular and wearable color, a warm mid brown, which works extremely well with grays, blues, and browns not to mention a great pair of raw denim jeans.

Two by Two

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.

A Mere Spectator

We’ve placed orders for several spectators, but none more than the Edward Green Cadogan. Until now we’ve only ordered them in black and white but this pair really stands out. Our client Mr. N. was beaming when he slipped these bad boys on, and rightly so. Incidentally he has a black and white pair on the way. Job well done Mr. N. you’re in very good company.
