New & Lingwood
Gieves & Hawkes
No.1 Savile Road, London
Founded in 1771
Gieves and Hawkes, bespoke military tailors, founded in 1771, awarded Royal Warrants, is much expanded today, with menswear for all occasions. Over the years, their shoes have been provided by various fine English shoemakers, lately New & Lingwood. Under special order, in other words, produced according to Grieves’ own designs, this shoe, with its peculiar cap and wingtip, will not be seen elsewhere.
This shoe is most extraordinary as it has both a wing-tip and a cap-toe, thus, though ready-made, it has the individuality found only in a bespoke model. Their bespoke shoes run into many thousands and are made by New & Lingwood too.
