Our new Interns

 

Gentlemen,

 

Foster & Son has been lucky to secure the services of two interns, Fabianie and Ben, and we thought it might be interesting to take a look at what we do through their eyes. They are getting a feel for the business and are involved in sales, marketing and all the other stuff that goes on at Fosters.

 

They will be completing a series of photo essays over the next few weeks including a video of how to get to Jermyn Street from the tube, something we’ve not done before and perhaps of interest to first-time visitors to the street.

 

To continue my own tale of woe, not only has Andy sold ‘my’ faded pair of shoes, I was also told by Ben - as he bought a pair of Matisse Tassel Loafers - that they are cool, 'old fashioned is back in, they’d make you look younger Frank.’

 

I ask you.

Gentlemen,

 

With many thanks to our friend Dmitry in Moscow, an illuminating interview with our very own Andrew Murphy, well worth a read.

Indeed.   I had a chat with Andrew when he came to Hong Kong.  He gave a very frank and open opinion without mistifing the brand or shoes and you can feel the same here in this interview.

Awesome! I haven't known you set up the EG shop. Is it true Terry made last 88, so that last 88 was exclusively for Foster? (I have read that before in a Japanese magazine/blog.)

WHICH PAIRS, AT YOUR OPINION, ARE WARDROBE STAPLES AND EVERY MAN MUST HAVE?

You should not ask me because I have around 50 pairs of shoes (laughing). If you are a working man, you have to wear black shoes, as most men do for business. The best way is to have 3 pairs of formal black shoes and rotate them around, do not wear one pair every day, let shoes breathe and keep them in wooden shoe trees. I would say that once you buy a classic Oxford, you can buy some different styles like Wholecuts or Full Brogues. For summer you should have Loafers. For weekend I prefer brown shoes. So, 5 pairs of shoes is a nice collection and will cover everything a man might need.

BTW, here are 6 models selected by the master bootmakers.

Wildsmith used 88, and I was able to order it directly from EG when the other channel ceased to be available.

Gents,

 

Lovely feedback and much appreciated. I'm unable to ask about the origins of the 88 last today, but will certainly find out what, if any, involvement Terry had in making it as soon as I can.

 

Andy has been very candid in his interview and we're really pleased with it, certainly no 'bull****' as anyone who knows him will readily testify.

 

Love the Regal shoes, very nice indeed.

I finally finished the second part of the Foster and Son bespoke shoes series - this time on clicking, finishing and brogueing. I hope you guys and Foster and Son team will enjoy it. The next and last part will be on the final bespoke shoe so expect many photos.
