Classic Suede Cap-Toe Half Brogue Oxford
Charles Tyrwhitt is a well know shirt maker located at 92 Jermyn Street London SW1. Their major business is mail order of good and price-worthy shirts and shoes but they maintain a Jermyn Street shop located, as it is, in the heart of London’s most elegant shopping district, rubbing shoulders with Turnbull & Asser, Alfred Dunhill, Thomas Pink, Hilditch & Key, John Lobb, Church’s, Edward Green, Crockett & Jones, New & Lingwood and WS Foster & Son, to name but a few of the luminaries of gentlemen’s furnishings located there. Befitting this august company, Tyrwhitt purveys only their superior premium lines in the Jermyn Street shop. The present shoe is such an example. Unlike many of their shoes provided by Alfred Sargent and Loake, these and their other boots for the Jermyn Street shop are made by Crockett or, as in this case, with excellent results, by Grenson.
The shoes shown here have a robust full rubber sole/heel added to the Goodyear welted leather sole, making them an excellent all-weather walking shoe, as good off-road as on pavement and a perfect complement too to your baggy tweeds, old khakis, homespun checks or ancient field jackets inherited from a departed relative. In short an ideal shoe for surveying your estates or for a foray into the village for a pint with the townsfolk. Moreover, this is the kind of suede that requires no more than a quick brushing when dry to return to handsome service.
Size Details:UK 9E.......US 9D/E.......Continental 42D/E, for the medium width foot.
Showing modest wear to bottoms, and some staining to top, otherwise very servicable.
