Cross post from the Foster & Son/Henry Maxwell: Official Affiliate Thread

We hope this post belongs here, please let us know if it doesn't.

 

Our historic bespoke shoe collection Foster & Son/ Henry Maxwell  

Crocodile Loafer:

 

This crocodile loafer is a perfect example of a timeless Foster & Son bespoke shoe. It is incredibly versatile and could, at a pinch, be worn anywhere. It was the inspiration for our Aston Ready to Wear loafer.

 

 

It was made before 1930, during our time on Duke of York Street, when London’s bespoke shoe makers were in their prime. The leather is still intact and the shoe still on display in one of our cabinets at 83 Jermyn Street, where it always attracts interest.

 

 

The detailing is superb. The stitch count on the welt features 15 stitches to the inch and the stitching on the upper remains consistent throughout.

 

 

We would love to hear your thoughts and welcome any suggestions for classic shoes you might wish to see featured on Style Forum. If you find yourself in London come along to see us at 83 Jermyn Street.

You may have saw a good looking pair of Mezlans, but didn't know they were Mezlans. Back in the 80s and 90s, they made "house brands" for many of the high end stores. Those were not the crazy styled exotic skins in pimp colors.

Patek,

 

Currently we only do crocodile for bespoke orders, though that may change. The best example from our current production that I can give you is these at £5250:.
