• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

LMAO. i never heard of SWMBO until now. Thought i was the only one here!!!
I've been having to ship my purchases to a friends place, then pick them up and keep them at work until a time comes when i can get home without her and before her to store in the closet.
Yeah sometimes I feel like I should be in the Bourne series. "Trend"stone never seemed so relevant.

Excellent. You've put in the work and differentiated your brand from the many others in this now crowded space. I'm unsurprised that you're doing well. You've earned the success. Congratulations!
Was literally talking about this very same topic to a colleague. It seems to me within the last 18 to 24 months, there have been a plethora of new shoe companies popping up everywhere (SoH being one of those).

I guess there has been a resurgence in the interest for good men's shoes. More so for that well-informed cost conscious customer attempting to buy into what is now an oversaturated mid-market for men's shoes.
Which if we are being honest, this market segment truly offers the highest value in men's footwear.

The Contemporary Almond last and the George design (SpTD)
has really elevated SoH over most of these brands (the Cortés is right behind it though). This combination really does differentiate itself from almost anything out there at this price range.

Factor in, Tom is offering leathers found in the upper tier market (EG & GG come to mind), and similar construction (any NorthHampton brand, Carmina to name a few) at a lower price!!
Is there really any doubt SoH would be successful?

In the not so distant future, we may have to include SoH in the fitting discussion for sizing references... i.e. Carmina Rain, AE 65, Alden Barrie, Carlos Santos 234, GGMH73, EG 202,82.. etc, etc.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of SWMBO going around these parts. Which typically involves a lot of sneaking around opening new shoe boxes in the dark and very quietly. :smarmy:
My biggest win in the battle was to introduce the wife to nicer shoes that actually fit her feet. While NAOT, Dansko and SAS aren't in the price range of my shoes, she has less leverage than before about money spent. She's in a whole different world now with better quality and better fit and almost understands my shoe collection. I also took her out several times last years to buy clothes for her and she felt guilty and told me to buy a pair of shoes. That's why I went in on the burgundy lama chukkas right after the Byron hatchgrain.

@winghus tell us more about how to get a women to approve of more shoes:worship:
The question is how do you do it without spending so much money.

@Notch: did I miss the images from the HW samples from China? I noticed some pages ago you mentioned the samples had arrived and you wanted to post soon, but alas I don't seem to find them...

Got my pair of Sienna Hatchgrain Byron boots. Tom did a great job with the burnishing. Love the fact that it has a gusseted tongue. My first reaction was WOW

Thats not fair, you guys who live overseas got the boots quicker than me, and I live only 30 miles from SOH offices... Anyway great boots to look forward to 😁

For those of you looking for side by side picture of SoH shoes on the almond and ER lasts, here's a family photo of my George pairs. All but one are on the CA last. Can you spot the intruder?

Nope, the one in suede.
I've got all shades of brown covered, but sadly no navy or burgundy yet. Hopefully we get Tom to remedy for that! :)
