Justin, “The Shoe Snob”
Carreducker is off to the US next week for its first joint Gieves & Hawkes / carréducker bespoke Trunk Show to the USA.
14 & 15 October at The Intercontinental Chicago
17, 18 & 19 October at The Plaza, New York
Alongside the company’s more adventurous samples, they are showcasing the Mayfair collection – the ultimate black bespoke shoes – a pared-back Oxford, Wholecut, Derby and Loafer – as well as offering rubber soles as an option for bespoke customers (not just popular, but essential on America’s east coast). Having bespoke shoemaking and tailoring together is convenient and an ideal opportunity for customers to go for a full top-to-toe bespoke wardrobe. Customers can make an appointment with carreducker by email at email@example.com and with Head Cutter Kathryn Sargent at firstname.lastname@example.org
ST CRISPIN’S DAY
As you know, October is a very special month in the shoemaking calendar as we celebrate the patron saint of shoemakers Saints Crispin and Hugh on 25 October. Both men were disinherited by their wealthy families and became shoemakers before being finally put to death: St Crispin in France in 288 A.D. and St. Hugh in England. St Hugh’s name lives on as the nickname for a shoemaker’s tools – Sir Hugh’s Bones.
The day is normally one of revelry and holiday but we shall instead be showing off our skills throughout the week in the Gieves & Hawkes flagship store window on Vigo street. Please come by to wave at us and to say ‘hi’ at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 3pm.
