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)

Edward Green’s Top Drawer program gives you the opportunity to customize their models above and beyond what is possible in their MTO program. Changes to medallions, wings/caps, fitting adjustments, etc, can all be done in TD.

Greater attention to detail is also placed on TD orders as a single shoemaker is in charge of a single pair from beginning to completion.

EG TD starts at $1600.00.

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!
