Wedding Shoes

I have been holding on to this little gem of a postcard for at least a couple of years now, waiting for a good time to share it.  Today being the first day of June (wedding season?) I pulled it out and popped it into the scanner.  

I found the postcard at a local shop that carries local art and antiques.  The photographer, Jacci, was happy to give me a copy. She took the photo in the mid 1990s....

Handsome American Leather

If leather is a byproduct of the meat packing industry, then what would you call these beautiful pieces?

We call them fantastic! 

Made from the same  HorweenChromexcel that we use for our shoe leather, the baseball and wallet above are fittingly handmade and stitched with care by Paul Cunningham in Glen Rock, New Jersey. Paul has purchased leather scraps for use in some of his projects. You can...

Blogspotted at Bluebirdbaby

Blog Spotted in Japan

We knew our shoes were popular in Japan, but Dave was still a little surprised when he stumbled upon  this blog post by Japanese designer, Yusuke Hanai.  Intrigued, Dave contacted Yusuke and traded him a pair of shoes for a few sketches.  Here's what Yusuke sent.  Fun, right?

When we contacted Yusuki to get permission for this post, he graciously allowed us to also share these photos from his...

Style Blog Spotting

A sweet customer stopped in and bought a few pairs of our Middle English shoes the other day - navy for herself, brown for her boyfriend, and another pair for Mister Mort, the San Francisco based style blogger.  He spotted our shoes on a furniture dealer at a Paris flea market last fall.  Check it out here.
