We’ve just received three new Edward Green models, of which two are new designs and one which is new to Leffot. The two new designs are the Claverton on the 82 last in Dark Oak and the Midford also on the 82 last in Black Calf.
I really like the sleeker lines of the 82 last on these two models. It has a much more stylish feel than the 202, it’s very elegant but also perfect for office wear.
The third style is the Ringwood in Edwardian Antique on the 888 last. This butterfly gusset shoe with medallion toe has a very continental boot look to it. It’s a great looking shoe especially with casual slacks such as cords, flannels or jeans.
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.
