Gaziano & Girling Westbury and Strand

Gaziano & Girling new arrivals

Gaziano & Girling makes elegant, modern shoes using the time-tested Goodyear construction. If you’re looking for shoes that put a twist on their classic roots, look no farther than G&G. The Strand is an austere oxford made in Espresso calfskin with a swan’s neck stitch. The shoe’s six eyelets offer snug support with a higher vamp.

The Westbury is a wholecut made on the chiseled TG73 last in vintage rioja calfskin. Set apart by the hand-stitching around the lacing quarters, they’re the ideal dress shoe to wear with charcoal, navy, or grey.

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Dean Girling this Friday, October 24, from 11 to 6. If you are a fan of G&G we hope you’ll find the time to visit and meet Dean.

Church’s Westbury – MTO

The Westbury monk strap by Church’s is one of their classic styles. When our client D.G. requested these two pair we knew there was going to be a twist. That’s because he had previously ordered a pair of Grafton’s made up as a spectator, which was very unique.

I like it when customers have shoes made up that are one of a kind. I admire those that can envision a pair in a way that is singular and special, these two fit that bill.

It’s Hip To Be Square

The Westbury by Church’s English Shoes is admittedly a very basic monk strap. But that is the appeal of it for me.

Legend has it that these were the dress uniform shoes for officers of the British Military. Ours are in polished binder, which will keep them spit shined and looking great with a business suit or a pair of skinny jeans.

I know I have a habit of saying that but its big point with me. Shoes even thought they may look dressy are versatile and can be worn dressed up or down.
