Yup. They have two killer new models.
The pick of the litter is a new monk strap they are calling the "Grant." It's basically the old "Stowe" now rendered in burnt pine and featuring a medalion toe cap.
There's also the "Carson," a beautiful 3-eyelet blucher with double soles. It's got an elongated toe box and looks a lot like the Barksdale in lace-up form. It comes in dark oak.
They also now have the Mackay in Edwardian.
Two other major devlopments are that they have held pricing at $850 and best of all, the old and IMHO inferior hinged shoe trees have been killed and replaced with the standard EG 3-piece trees!! Still included with the shoes.
