    Yes, part of the Manfield group now. But I read that their Goodyear welted models are made by Alfred Sargent in Northamptonshire.
    I guess everyone knows already, but the name Manfield itself has the interesting historical link with Northampton and the original Manfield shoe company, the Paris shop becoming independent when the mother company was bought up sometime between the two world wars. The town's hospital (Manfield Hospital naturally) was named after the founder. I bought a pair of Bowen loafers in Paris around 1995 and although they're not at all high end, they've always been very comfortable and very long-lasting. I see no signs at all of any construction failure and have never had to have the outer welt stitching repaired. Last couple of years I've been wearing them as slippers. Never bought any more.
