i sholudent need to, all the original designs will be in Edward Greens files, with the name Wildsmith crossed out and there own put on it, as you all know that its hard to copy right a shoe, all someone has to do is change stiching slightly etc and then claim it is a different shoe. plus would Edawrd Green make shoes for wildsmiths with the wildsmith name on if we were just copying there designs, would be bad business sence to, p.s i didnt mean to sound abrupt in my first post but it is annoying when people keep saying things that are not correct, im am not john wildsmith but im one of the wildsmith children

Sir:

Many of us lack access to Edward Green's files, and since the closing of your shop in the Prince's Arcade, have no way to further pursue this matter. What do you advise? Did you also design the shoes made by Crockett & Jones for Wildsmith?
post #770 of 14986
Lets get it straight, i didnt design them, however seen the designs for shoes that have been framed and dated, and they have the foot trace of the customers who bought them from Sir Winston churchill to the Duke of Wellingotns half brother. however as you said i cannot prove this but i wouldent call myself a lier. ill openly admit that maybee there were shoes designed by Edaward Green that My family have sold but i am unaware of this. but i know that a great deal ofthem were designed by wildsmiths, my great grandfather designes the first slip on shoe in this country.

Model 98, or as Edward Green calls it, the Harrow.

So why did you stop your bespoke service?

all things must come to an end im affraid, my grandpa decided to call it a day but didnt hand the business down to my dad, my dad worked there for 12 years, doesnt really count for a lot these days unfortunantly. yeah i think thats the one. im not saying that all wildsmiths shoes are perfect, just annoys me that everyone calls them Edward Greens shoes.

The seller is trying to sell used Stacy Adams (9330778840) for 480-560 Euros. He's also pushing, for 160 Euros, used Florsheims (8424843781) that cost $125-150 when new, and I'm pretty sure they're not kenmoors. And trying to pass off the new, India made corrected grain Kenmoors (item 8435009485) as shell cordovan.

ech.

Although it broke my heart to read the seller's comment: "Today, my shoes come from China." So very sad.

Mr. Wildsmith,

I am pleased to read what you have given us so far. Please do continue to provide information on the shoes and anything further on quality men's wear.
