Trip to Leffot

I know this should just get thrown in the shoe porn thread, but I wanted it to highlight Leffot, a real treasure for shoe lovers. I went this past Saturday, empowered by my wife to select a birthday present. Came away with the following.













Steven was great to work with. Has a very nice selection of EG (I was very tempted by the Perth on the 82, Southwold 888 and a Westminster double monk.

Nice assortment of G&G, though most in the TG73 sharp square. I was curious to see the sharp round.

The Corthay really impressed me (hence the purchase - I have nothing like this style; definitely sleek enough to wear with a suit.) I hope Steven and Leffot thrive; there is a real need for a store that offers such a nice assortment of high end brands.

Although I know it won't get any love, I also treated myself to a ghillie at Paul Stuart; will look great with cavalry twill slacks, flannels, or a tweed suit...or even a kilt!



Love the color and the quirky style...a real fun shoe.

I feel these should garner as much hate as my Raf Simons sandals.

The Corthay shoes are beauties! They are kinda a mix of dandy and elegant. Wonderful color too.

The ghillies are such a distinctive shoe. I have been tempted over the years to buy a pair but never really know what I would wear with them. Perhaps I am just over thinking it and should just get a pair. Hmmm, where did I put that Master card?????

Max 30% on account of the horrible lacing and tassels.

I thought you'd be into men in kilts.

Both great additions Harry.

The ghillie is cool but the Corthay is in the same class as the Vass London derby on the U last.

Good choice on the Corthay, I consider Arca as Corthay's iconic model. I've got the same pair on my recent trip to Freedom but in a different color. And bravo to Leffot for all the SF-quality brands they carry, I wish they'd replace Church's and Testoni with Vass & St. Crispin.

I don't recall seeing any Testoni. No mention of them on their website.

I am looking forward to the St. Crispin's visit to NYC in the fall. I am definitely going to make an appointment.
