    “Lloyd & Haig” war ein amerikanischer Grosshändler mit 3 Locations in Manhatten – bis ca. Mitte der 80er. Er importierte die feinsten englischen Konfektions-Schuhe und brachte sie unter eigenem Namen heraus. Ich würde deren Angebote, was Qualität und Fabrikation angeht, durchaus den modernen englischen Fabrikaten von “Brooks Brothers” gleichsetzen – der sogenannten “Peal & Co-Line”, die wiederum vieles mit John Lobb’s Konfektion-Produkten gemein hat- kurzum also: ein Top-Qualitäts-Schuh. Lloyd & Haig haben der New-York-Business-Community für Generationen gedient und haben gleichzeitig eine sehr traditionsverbundene und im besten Sinn “konservative” Serie angeboten.

    Lloyd & Haig was an American retailer with three locations in Manhattan until the mid 1980. They imported and re-branded the finest of ready-made English shoes. I would put their offerings on a par in terms of quality and construction with today’s English-made Brooks Brothers shoes, the so-called Peal & Co. line, which shares many earmarks with John Lobb’s ready-mades, in short, a top quality ready-made shoe. Lloyd & Haig served the New York business community for several generations and, accordingly, offered a very traditional and conservative line of shoes of which this is an excellent example.

    I am grateful to Mr. Bill Tarlow, the last proprietor of the Lloyd & Haig who has generously provided much of the following detailed information about the history of this historic New York firm.


    Size Details:

    UK 10.5E..... US 11.5D......European 45D, for the medium width foot.

    Shoe Condition:

    Original sole modestly worn, new heels. Many small cuts and blemishes and wear to the lining, still very attractive and serviceable. Goodyear welted (of course). This is the ideal shoe for evening or business wear; no shoe is more basic or more useful in the gentleman's wardrobe.
