*Vintage STACY-ADAMS 3-Eyelet Black-on-Black Spectator, Circa 1950: 42 Narrow (US 9)


  • 3-Eyelet, “Black on Black”, Full Brogue Spectator
    Circa 1950
    Stacy Adams
    Euro 440

    This very nicely made earlier example of the Full Brogue Spectator by Stacy-Adam uses smooth over suede leather to great advantage both at the vamp and the edges of the quarters (the opening of the shoe). A lovely combination of leathers set off by very discreet brogueing throughout, to compliment the rather bold and dramatic extension of the toe-box. The shoe is from the 1950s but harkens to an earlier time both stylistically and in construction technique and is not, I hasten to add, to be compared to the products of Stacy Adams’s descendent firm, who have long since failed to produce anything qualitatively comparable to this shoe.
