Edward Green – Buxton in Slate Antique (LSW)

Our favorite Edward Green loafer is back, this time in slate antique. The Buxton is essentially an unlined penny loafer version of the iconic Dover. A handsewn Norwegian apron and split toe gives the Buxton its unique look.

Slate antique is a great alternative to black. In darker situations it looks black but in the light the deep tones of dark grey come out and show an amazing patina.

Alden Shoe – Choco Suede Tanker Restock (LSW)

We’ve just received another restock of one of our most requested Alden boots, the Choco Suede Tanker Boot. Just in time for Christmas, these boots are perfect for Winter wear.

Rich chocolate brown suede looks great with the contrast stitch of the NST. The commando sole featured on the Tanker continues to be the most popular boot sole and rightfully so.
