Loake 1880 line - classics discontinued?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently went to the Loake website to see look at the full 1880 line (http://www.loake.co.uk/our_shoes/ran...asp?range=1880), but can't seem to find any of the classic models there (plain cap-toe oxford Wells, full-brouge Exeter, semi-brogue Durham). They are still available from Pediwear: http://www.pediwear.co.uk/stock.php?range_ID=55.

Is this a problem with my web browser set-up, or have Loake decided to stop making the classic 1880 models?

They may have discontinued them. Pediwear no longer carries the Estoril, Loake's driving moc, and I can't find them on the Loake site. They can be bought from Charles Tyrwhitt, though.

Then maybe I should order the pair of chestnut colored Wells from Pediwear I planned to get sooner than later. Thanks!

Wow, that is unfortunate.

I just visited the Loake site again and found that they've now updated their 1880 line with a bunch of new models such as the Ritz and Dorchester that I thought looked very nice:

The Ritz look an awful lot like a pair of Calf Leather Derbys that Tyrwhitt has had available for some time. I have them in black and quite like them.
