Hello SF-ers,

Our first hand-welted shoe designed by the community, HW-01 Wholecut Oxford, is here!

Once again, we thank you profusely for guiding the development of this second product through your detailed responses to our survey. As will soon be common practice, we’ve taken every insight you’ve given us and used them to craft and refine the ultimate hand-welted shoe, the HW-01, which you can access now via this link.

For the moment, this link is only available on Styleforum and is currently not available to the wider Archibald community or new customers. For the next fourteen days, only you, our co-creators on the HW-01 can purchase it for the at-cost (Naked) price which includes a $10 donation to SF for every pair purchased.

Whilst we like to keep things exciting and new, certain facets of the Archibald ethos remain the same and that includes our commitment to transparency. The truth is that with the current uncertainty there may be unforeseen changes (both positive or negative) to product or delivery and thus if the final price at-cost of your HW-01 is lower than the pre-order price currently available we will make that known to you. And we will refund you the difference, in Archibald credit.

The HW-01 is an exciting evolution for us, in our co-creative relationship with the SF community. Not only have we developed a hand-welted shoe tailored to your specifications but it is available in a range of different options and leathers, including the very special and much-requested Horween shell cordovan.

So give us your feedback as thoroughly as you can and get ready, because we’re still just getting started.

Best Wishes,

Orlando Product Manager - Archibald London

PS -- You have 14 days to pre-order from the HW-01, after which we shall go into production. We may release a second run of the HW-01 range but this is likely to be at the normal Archibald pricing and may lack the same scope of variants. You can always reach us on this page or by dropping us an email at [email protected]

How are your belt sizes measured? Is the buckle also measured? And is the sizing till the end or the middle hole?

It often differs between places so that's why I'm asking.

And can you shorten them? It seems as it's not possible at the buckle side and I always dislike it when you do it at the thinning side.

nope, the buckle doesn't go into the measurement. Sizing is till the middle hole and consider ± 5cm from middle hole to the first and the last hole (basically 2.5cm between holes). And yeah, I totally get the question, everyone measure differently.

Unfortunately we don't offer the service of shortening the belts but we are in contact with a craftsman in Modena (Italy) who might be able to give us a quote.

Have you guys considered doing a Split Toe Derby? I don't think that it's a style that you currently do, and it has quite a following here on SF. So many exciting possibilities; from the shape of last, materials, hand stitched apron, and overall interesting construction.

-can anyone speak to the sizing? it seems a little off when comparing the sizing to the their length measurements.
-is there a comparison of the lasts somewhere?
-also has anyone purchased the loafers and heritage hand welted boots?

Thanks in advanced!

Don't see much discussion on your Savile Row tees.

Any real life pics of them and pics of them worn after few washes etc?

The measurements online suggest its quite a slim fitting tee.
Even L is chest measure is around 20in laid flat? So means around 40-41in all round.

I have 18inch shoulders, 40inch all round chest and not very tall at only 168cm.

True! We only do a laced boot with the split toe, it's part of our heritage line. We should consider getting one done in Derby too, any specific you would like to see? do you have any pics?
