Bespoke England - Fine Shoes and Accessories; Official Affiliate Thread

post #1 of 226
Thread Starter 
Hi All, I'd like to introduce and welcome our latest affiliate, Bespoke England, as an official affiliate of Styleforum. Bespoke England will be able to meet forum members demands for fine, English-made footwear. Nick Anderson, creator and owner of Bespoke-England, whose motto is "Offering the finest men’s Clothing Accessories made to the highest standards of quality available", offers a hand selected collection of the finest quality Men’s Shoes and Accessories all Made in England. He tells me that his products are often unique one-off pieces or limited editions, and that customers have the opportunity to own a unique Bespoke Quality product, which is either available on the website or can be tailor made for them. There are several years of experience at Bespoke-England in handling English Footwear including London & Northampton’s finest Bootmakers such as John Lobb, Edward Green and more recently, Gaziano & Girling. Please see their range of products and services at www.bespoke-england.co.uk Cheers, Fok.

Nice goods.

I hope I am not detracting from the G&G focus but it states that the store also carries Edward Green, but I don't see any.

Hello,
Thank you for introducing me and my business Fok. It is a pleasure to be involved with the styleforum. I have followed it for several years now but have not been involved with replies or posting topics. I now intend to help as and where I can on the forum. First I would like to mention how privileged I am to be selling English products of such quality. I hope members of the forum appreciate the website.
I have been up and running for 1 year as Bespoke-England. Before the website store I sold directly to my private clientele concentrating on mainly John Lobb shoes and sometimes Edward Green. I am currently concentrating on Gaziano & Girling shoes. These in my opinion are of the finest quality, made on the finest lasts and the finest leathers are used.
I'm continually looking for other suppliers from England and I'm pleased to announce that from next month I will have a range of Ettinger wallets and leather goods available.
As suggested in the banner, I have a complimentary shoe horn for styleforum members on shoe purchases. These shoe horns can be made as a "Bespoke" piece. You have the choice of length, colour and they can be engraved with your name, company name or discreet initials. A plain example can be viewed in the "Accessories" tab on the website.
I hope you enjoy the website. www.bespoke-england.co.uk
Regards,
Nick.

Emails have come in now enquiring about UK / US fitting. I have devised a size
chart on the website which I think most people will find helpful:

http://www.bespoke-england.co.uk/pages/help

Some customers will be a half size differnt between UK & US and some will find they are a full size different.

Widths in High End English shoes are as follows:

Gaziano & Girling...D-Narrow / E-Standard / F-Wide
Edward Green...D-Narrow / E-Standard / F-Wide
John Lobb...D-Narrow / E-Standard / EE-Wide
Crockett & Jones...D-Narrow / E-Standard / F-Wide


US shoe makers usually use "D" as standard so if your US shoes are "D" then an English shoe "E" should be equivalent.

If anyone could add to this it would help.

This post is not really related to the sizing post, although I have found the 'E' fitting on some of the G & G shoes to be slightly narrow of "standard width". I have to wear the 'F' fitting on the G & G shoes I've owned, whereas I wear the standard width on most other shoes. However, my experience is quite limited so treat what I say with suspicion.

My reason for posting here is that of an endorsement of Mr. Anderson. We have never met, but we have had a few telephone conversations in the past. Unfortunately, my plans to purchase from Mr. A didn't come to pass (my fault and the recession). However, he has been VERY helpful, professional and genuine to me.

He's been around in the game a long time, so I personally would prefer to use his services than go directly to most manufacturers. In short - Nicks's a good guy.

Anyway, there it is, for what it's worth.

Clint

I find C&J's E width to fit pretty close to an American D (1 full size conversion). As for EG, Hilary Freeman has told me that EG's D is the same as an American D. So while EG considers E as their medium fitting, one must conclude that the English average/medium fitting of either E or F (depending on the maker) is wider/roomier than the American standard D width.

Btw, nice website Nick!

Thanks for all the support and good feedback for the website. I have tried to keep it simple, tidy & easy to navigate. If anyone has trouble seeing it or going through the pages and images, checkout etc please let me know.
Nick.

Is this the same Nick Anderson of ebay's "english-shoes"?
post #13 of 226
Yes, that was a while ago. Good memory! I first started my business selling shoes on Ebay. I realised quite early on that the shoe makers in England didn't like their shoes being sold on ebay & still don't. For them, Ebay isn't a good route to market. This is what prompted me in to designing a website that would be a more professional route to market. I didn't want to only sell shoes but I also didn't want a clothing store so I have concentrated on Men's Accessories with the shoes.

Nick, no offense, but why is the shop called Bespoke England? As far as I can see you sell (very fine) RTW/MTO goods?
