Elsewhere in this website, you can read about the the illustrious history of this great American firm but, suffice it to say that in terms of build quality and materials, their American products were on a par with the best. And their exotic leather shoes for golf or street were unequaled by any but the finest custom made/bespoke shoes. The passing of this firm is no less than a tragedy leavened only by the proud legacy of the few examples of their work remaining to us.
