Classic Suede Full 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.
These are not to be confused with Tyrwhitt’s line of lesser off-shore made products for their on-line business.
The shoes shown here are a finely-made full grain calfskin suede classic half brogue oxford, the daytime shoe of choice in London’s “City”, financial district. Seen worn with pin-stripes, gray flannels and other business wear, they are the height of elegance and precisely in the English Taste. Naturally a lovely shoe like this in exactly the right tone of dusty-brown is 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.
Condition: Excellent, very lightly worn.
Size: UK 9E….US 10D…..Continental 43-43.5D, for the medium width foot.
A tip: High quality suede is remarkably low maintenance and easy to clean, even muddied or wet. A nice rinse or shampoo, let dry, brush up the nap and good as new.
