A Great British Shoe Needs an Even Better British Watch

Our last Match The Watch With The Shoe posting attracted the attention of some trolls and for a short while their unedifying remarks were to be read on our Facebook page. We did with them what we do with all trolls; ship them off to the Philippines, there to be entertained by President Duterte’s shadowy ‘correction’ squad. No one ever commits the same offence twice.

In this edition of MTWWTS, these immaculate brogues have been designed in collaboration with cult Japanese label Foot the Coacher and meticulously handmade in England by renowned shoemakers Grenson. The neat shape and elegant contrast of suede and smooth leather is a dandy nod to Victorian style. This eclectic twist on a traditional shoe makes a fine companion to slim tailoring. £425.00

As usual we present a range of complementary watches to suit all pockets
