The Chelsea boot was designed for its ease of slipping on and off. In addition the whole-cut forepart and elastic gussets, Edward Green creates a boot that fits like a glove, or (to be more precise), like a sock. This boot is perfectly urban and versatile, wearing well with just about anything.

This pair of color 8 longwings is one of our favorite Alden x Leffot shoes. The color 8 shell cordovan longwing is the “classic” Alden shoe, a monolith of American style and versatility. Our updated version is only slightly changed from the original, but the change makes all the difference.

Made with an antiqued sole edge and per-stitched reverse welt, the shoe is lustrous and sophisticated. Built on the Barrie last with oil soaked double waterlock soles for a softer, more flexible fit, they are sure to improve with age.

A wise old gambler once said, “You gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em.” Sage advice, no doubt, and exactly what our Fold wallets are all about.
