Edward Green – Holborn & Shelton (LSW)

Bluchers are great for those with high insteps but are considered more casual than traditional oxfords. Our latest Edward Green releases are the Holborn and Shelton, dressy takes on a typically casual shoe.

Our Holborn is in Dark Oak Antique and the Shelton is in Hazel Antique. Both on the 888 last, the elongated silhouette and 2 and 3 eyelet designs make these bluchers as dressy as bluchers can be.

LSW Alden Factory Visit

On Friday January 27th, we were fortunate enough to make our yearly visit to the Alden factory in Middleboro, Massachusetts. It was the first visit for Shig, Will, and Oki. A full day of hands-on learning topped off with a hearty lunch at the Fireside Grill and dinner at Burton’s Grill with Alden’s owner, Art Tarlow and VP Bob Clark gave priceless insight and knowledge to the guys so that they may be able to better assist you with your Alden needs.

Rest assured, Tom has a bunch of new ideas brewing after this visit as well…

Mahalo Art, Bob, and Nate for your hospitality and continued support!

Alden Shoe – Black Lady Calf Tanker (LSW & LSBH)

One of our most popular Alden boot makeups is back in stock. The black lady calf tanker boot not only looks great but feels amazing due to Alden’s soft tumbled lady calf. An antique edgetrim really makes the boot, creating a nice contrast with the black calf and black commando sole.

Due to the nature of lady calf, texture and grain patterns of each boot may vary.

Saint Crispin’s – 316 Semi Brogue Saddle Blucher (LSW)

Our latest Saint Crispin’s model is the 316 in red 076 Inca grained calf. What makes this semi brogue blucher so unique is the saddle detailing. We chose the classic last to keep it classic, and had the edgetrim done in light antique to make the 076 Inca really pop.

($1700.00, lasted, hollowed shoe trees included)

I was fortunate enough to spend the weekend in San Francisco with the main purpose of watching the 49ers play the Saints in the NFL playoffs. Little did I know that I would experience one of the greatest games in recent NFL history!

The non-football highlight of my short two night trip was hanging out with my friend Kiya, owner of Self Edge. We started out with an amazing cup of coffee at Four Barrel, like no coffee I’ve ever tasted. Then we stopped at Taylor Stitch next door where one of the owners, Mike, measured me up for a bunch of custom dress shirts made with Japanese fabrics. The night ended up with some Pappy Van Winkle 20 year and great food and company at Foreign Cinema with Mr. and Mrs. Self Edge.

Mahalo Kiya, hope to see you in Honolulu soon!
