Epaulet Sewn by Hand footwear is our exclusive in-house brand. Each piece is handsewn and meticulously crafted in Maine of the finest leathers and materials.
- Navy Chamois Leather
- Colors Available:
This is our unique adaptation of the traditional blue & white boat shoe. For the upper, we selected a rich navy Horween Chamois to give the shoe a distinctive matte look, slightly more rugged texture, and increased weather proofing. We’ve also given the Westport three eyelets as opposed to two, which we think gives the shoe a more secure and comfortable fit, as well as a more handsome profile. The Westport features a true 360° lacing system, whereby you can loop the front laces through the exposed laces running along the sides of the shoe so as to cinch the whole upper snugly around the ankle; this traditional manner of lacing allows for a superior fit and unmatched comfort, especially when not wearing socks.
Like all Epaulet Sewn by Hand footwear, the toe is hand-stitched and a padded footbed runs along the interior; and, if the sole wears out, a cobbler can easily replace it. This shoe is fully lined with soft glove calfskin.
