Two by Two

We received a delivery of Edward Green MTO’s and immediately realized a very interesting coincidence. All of the pairs had a fraternal twin, a mate or partner if you will in the parlance of our times.

This group really got me psyched; there are some very special shoes here.

Take Stock

Welcome to 2009, this is a good time to take stock of your shoe inventory, what you still wear and what you don’t. A basic shoe collection should consist of 3 to 4 pairs for dress and casual wear, and should of course be in good condition and worn in rotation.

I recommend one pair be black oxfords even if “you never wear black shoes” trust me there will come a day you will need them. The rest should be according to your work/lifestyle. It’s also a good idea to have a pair for bad weather.

Here is a sample of what a Basic collection could look like of course it can grow exponentially from here:

Church’s Consul

Alden All Weather Walker


Corthay Bucy                                                          Edward Green Westminster


Monk-ey see Monk-ey do

Pierre Corthay and Edward Green bring our two versions of the Monk Strap to you. Either look great dressed up or down, they are masculine and stylish. Monk straps aren’t for everyone but I’ve always liked them.

Pierre Corthay – Montaigne in Terre on the 002 last

Edward Green – Westminster in Dark Oak on the 888 last with Double Leather Sole

Incidentally in the old days we called them Buckle Shoes, and you would only wear them in black with a plain toe. I hope I’m not dating myself……
