    Brooks Brothers had marketed superb several different makers shoes under the “Brooks English” and Peal & Co. names from the 1950’s onward but the present pair is an actual Peal product preceeding the closure of that venerable shoemaker in January 1965. This shoe is made to the high standards of that time, what would be considered bespoke quality today. With its channelled and skived welting (the best technique of attaching the street sole to the welt), this is clearly of the earlier (and authentic) Peal production. The model itself, the Wing-Tipped Brogue Loafer/Slipper, a personal favourite of mine, is mostly seen in the custom-bespoke trade and this delightful and dramatic example is extremely well made, certainly among the very best made British shoes, a sleek and classic style in a long bespoke tradition. The modern copy is now selling at Brooks in New York and San Francisco for $598 plus taxes), see: Peal & Co.® Raywood – Brooks Brothers

    History of the firm: “Peal and Co were founded in 1565 and were the oldest-established and most successful makers in the world, employing up to 200 staff. The firm was established in Durham and moved to Derby in 1765, reaching London in 1791. In 1953 Peal bought their Oxford Street neighbours, Bartley and Son, inheriting their Boot and Fox emblem and moved to Wigmore Street in 1958. The business closed early in 1965, when the family decided that lack of family succession, a declining trade and shortage of skilled staff made closure their best option. The closure of Peal and Co was very helpful to the remaining shoemakers in London including Foster and Son, who acquired two important assets, the boot and fox emblem and Terry Moore.” The old Peal lasts are still said to be in use by Foster & Son who acquired them at the closure.

    Peal & Co. counted among their clients luminaries from both sides of the Atlantic, among them (a much shortened list);
