John Lobb Lopez and Edward

You can’t get any more classic than the Lopez loafer. Simply put, this shoe is an icon. Created in 1950, it is a simple and elegant shoe that’s been done up in Lobb’s beautiful dark brown suede. If you’re looking for something classic and unique, this is it.

The Edward is a slip-on made in Lobb’s beautiful black oxford calfskin. The outer skin and inner lining are cut from a single piece of leather that makes for a simple and elegant shoe that pairs well with anything from jeans to a sportcoat.

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.

Edaward Green – MTO’s

Two EG MTO’s arrived recently, each a favorite derby and oxford of mine. I own a pair of the Perth and have a pair of Falkirk on order.

I really love the brouging on the Falkirk; the thistle toe medallion in particular is quite exceptional.

Oak Bark Leather Soles

We thought you might find this interesting. The Joh. Rendenbach Jr. Tannery has been producing oak bark sole leather since 1871.

So what is it exactly?
It’s leather tanned using the classical oak-bark method, obviously. A naturally pure tanning method taking place in old, three-meter deep oak lined pits. This method uses exclusively vegetable tanning agents in the form of barks and fruits. The process normally lasts between nine and twelve months, depending on the hide thickness. The leather is tanned without mechanical movement, without raising temperatures and without adding chemical catalysts.

Besides other advantages, this proves to be very lightweight due to the long tanning duration ensuring that the hide absorbs only the amount of tanning agent absolutely necessary. Oak-bark tanned leather possesses unique properties: it is extremely hard wearing, tough, as well as flexible, making a comfortable sole of outstanding solidity, standing out through its appealing surface and a warm woody color. Oak-bark tanned sole leather is also:

– Highly water-repellent
– Especially breathable
– Absorbs perspiration
– Deodorant and antiseptic
– Prevention against foot diseases
– Completely bio-degradable

Think about that next time you try on a pair of Edward Green’s or Gaziano & Girling’s.
