Opposites attract, and it couldn’t be more evident than in these two takes on the wingtip from Edward Green. The Falkirk is a punched-out spectator done in Cloud and Midnight Blue calfskin. The unique brogueing traverses the entire shoe and makes the Falkirk distinctly Edward Green. It’s the perfect shoe for a maximalist with an eye for elegance.
Conversely, the Beaulieu is an austere take on the wingtip. Like the Falkirk, it has the classic wing-shaped pattern cut at the toe and the heel counter, but unlike the Falkirk, it has no broguing. Its clean lines, made distinct by double-needle stitching at the seams, make it a supremely elegant shoe that is perfect to wear with suits and slacks.
We’ve recently received a fresh shipment of Edward Greens, and with it came a new take on the Falkirk and a restock of the Beaulieu.
The Falkirk is an autumn spectator done subtly in Cloud and Midnight Blue Calfskins. The unique brogueing traverses the entire shoe and makes the Falkirk distinctly Edward Green. If you like wearing spectators in the summer, this combination is perfect to take the spectator into fall.
The Beaulieu is an elegant and understated style of balmoral wingtip, made on the sleek 82 last. Unique to this style is its absence of broguing and distinctive double needle stitching at the seems. It is perfect to wear with slacks or suits of many colors.
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.
