I think you don't understand the intent.
Telling them you're wearing Hendrick & Jones is meaningless to them, since they have not heard of the brand.
So, it is more instructive and educational to simply tell them they are an English brand.
If they actually want to know more specifics, I'm more than happy to share details
This indicates to the layman they are not for general sale in the USA, and that they have a good eye for noticing your uncommon shoes.
Speaking of which, I got 4-5 comments about my outfit today, and I haven't even gone to my dinner party yet.
