J.FitzPatrick – New Braided Leather Weekender Bag

The Last Shoemaker – Handmade Minimilast Shoes

 

There is a new-ish shoemaker in the UK region but offering more than what you would expect from a traditional British maker. And their name is The Last Shoemaker. While the name would make you think it is just one person it is actually a collaboration of sorts between two gentlemen who are both shoemakers and specialize in their own categories of shoemaking.

Crockett & Jones SS2022 Collection Now Live

How To Style Your Blue Shoes – Part 1: Suits

 

It may seem like an unorthodox choice, but blue is actually a real workhorse color for footwear: It can play many roles spanning different seasons, styles, and levels of formality.
