John Lobb Elm, Dark Brown Museum

John Lobb Elm

The Elm is a slip-on made in Lobb’s beautiful dark brown museum calfskin. The forefoot is 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.

Corthay trunk show, today and tomorrow

Corthay trunk show

Today and tomorrow we are hosting a trunk show with renowned French shoemaker Corthay. We’ll have a number of samples on hand, as well as fitting shoes so you can determine your size. Corthay’s made-to-order surcharge is waived for the duration of the show.

Corthay is arguably one of France’s most dynamic shoemakers. His shoes are elegant and ultra sophisticated, like small works of art. He began his shoemaking career at Les Compagnons du Tour de France, a venerable crafts guild. He later worked for John Lobb Paris before taking over as atelier head at Berluti. In 1990 he struck out on his own and has not looked back.

In 2010 he was awarded the honor of “Master of Art” by the government of France. The Master of Art designation of France, while not widely known in the States, is not bestowed lightly. In short, it means that the individual or firm is a cultural icon.

Norman Vilalta re-stock

Untitled-2

Today we received a re-stock of Norman Vilalta’s brown derby and oxford. As part of his Savile Row Meets Rock ’n’ Roll Collection, these shoes combine a classic pattern with rugged Gumlite soles in a modern deconstruction of the dress shoe. Made in patinated pebble grain calfskin, they’re undeniably unique but eminently wearable in a variety of situations. Any shoe from Norman Vilalta is a work of art, and these belong in your personal collection.
