I've been wearing the Andrew Lock derbies and monks constantly since they arrived last July.

Here are some new ones in the grass. happy.gif

Just a brief check-in. I've been having to go full MC a bit more often these days for work and my AL brown cap-toes remain a solid part of the rotation. I probably wear them less than the typical buyer, but they still look and feel great FWIW.

Andrew made me a tuxedo a few months back. Several folks have asked for a picture of it, so here you go... Very happy with how it turned out. And before anyone points it out, I was dancing all night, so no guff about sleeve wrinkles or anything. Clothes are meant to be lived in.

This is a black, not a midnight blue, though I believe he does have midnight blue fabric. Details are about as traditional as it gets--single button, no vent, peak lapel (obviously), besom pockets, satin facings. Trousers are higher rise with a single pleat, brace buttons, and side adjusters.

Thanks for posting. Looks great!

Thanks for the post aravenel. I am considering an AL tux in midnight blue.

I'm opening a small shop in Cedarhurst, NY very soon. Here's a nice little article from a local paper.

My Beaumont Oxfords are meant to be delivered today. I'd been halfheartedly looking for a new pair of black calf oxfords with a view to wearing them for my wedding in October, but had nearly settled on wearing the Church's Consul cap-toes that have never quite fit me properly. (I'm getting them back from the cobbler tomorrow after an attempt to stretch them to a more comfortable width, so it could be a veritable black-shoe bonanza this week!) Then I stumbled across these Andrew Locks and fell in love with the simple toe medallion and elegant waist. This thread was immensely helpful in reassuring me about a shoe I wasn't previously familiar with. Now very excited to get my feet in them! Hope to post a couple of in-the-wild photos this week assuming there's no problem with the size.

Pretty poor photos of a pretty excellent shoe: the Beaumont Handgrade Oxford.



I picked up my shoes from the post office last week... the same morning I left for six days in the mountains. I was eager to give them a try out on the street, but it had to wait.

As the toe is somewhat narrow and chiseled, the shoe is perhaps a touch longer than what I'm used to in my size (9F UK). So the week's delay gave me a chance to try them out on carpet a few times and contemplate the possibility of exchanging for an 8.5.

I finally decided today that I wasn't going to be absolutely certain of the fit until I'd worn them a while (and I didn't want to wait another week for an exchange)! I'm satisfied with the decision; the shoes are comfortable, sleek, great-looking, and a pleasure to walk in. (I'm in a very walking-intensive city, and do the better part of four miles during my daily commute.)

I need a new pair of shoes and have been indulging in AE's lately- any chance of having another Forum discount on the Gryffin or Northampton in time for Fall so I can mix it up a bit?   : )
