I think the Armoury has one of the fastest shipping reputations ever! Enjoy! Those are some beautiful shoes.

Surely you mean a shoe horn, unless there's a method to wearing shoes with shoe trees. Otherwise, lovely pickups!

Yep, a shoe horn. I corrected it.

I got in a muddle because the shoe trees I ordered from Endless.com on Friday evening(!!!) also arrived yesterday.

Thanks for the kind words!

Just wanted to drop in and compliment you guys on your Drakes shop in London (near/in Savile Row)

I was fortunate enough to drop in when your store architect was stopping by. The gentleman in the store was very helpful, and was very knowledgeable about your products. My favorite part was the SCs, but the wool ties were a close second.

Edit: Sorry for the terrible pictures, forgot my camera in the hotel, and didn't feel like walking back.

Check out the buttonhole on that SC! Tom Ford-esque

Thank you for the compliments but they really should be directed to the Drake's team rather than us! I hope you enjoyed the shop, the green grenadine is one of my favourite ties.

Got a link to that? I couldn't find it on the Drake's site.

Carmina shoe bags - the two pairs  got from The Armoury only had one shoe bag in the box but the pair I got from Carmina had two shoe bags. I checked and the bags were all exactly the same size.

 

Is there any particular reason for this or did some batches of orders only come with one bag per pair of shoes?

Kind of weird...I bought a pair of the Salinger Double Monks from Epaulet and they came with 2 shoe bags but the MTO Austerity Brogue only came with 1 bag.

I've also heard that some Carmina shoes come in green boxes and a friend who just got a pair of full brogue calf balmorals had a single red(!) shoe bag rather than the brown which I have with all mine. I wonder also if it's a grading kind of thing.

Very interesting!
