Life is less about what you do, and more about how and why you do those things.  This is called character.

The Oxxford Trunk Show – October 21

October 13, 2014


It is time again for the Oxxford Trunk Show. Our new friend Gary Heskje will be back in town with some fabrics to help create your made-to-measure suit or sport coat. If you haven’t been to an Oxxford Trunk Show before, come by this Tuesday and see what makes Oxxford the world’s best suit and sport coat, made in America.

As always, we will be offering a 10% discount on orders placed during the event. We hope to see you then.


Alden Makeup Chukka Boot in Hunting Green

October 8, 2014


Our new arrival to the shop, this Alden make up shoe is an unlined suede Chukka in Hunting Green. It is the same as our other Alden Suede Chukkas that you have no doubt seen—unlined suede on Alden’s flex went and oiled sole construction—but this version is the most ideal shade of green. Alden calls it Hunting Green. Not olive. Not British Racing. Not Hunter. 

It is Hunting Green. And we think it is just right. 

Shop this shoe.

A New Alden Makeup

August 2, 2014


This shoe is an Alden exclusive make-up by Harrison Limited. I made this shoe because I have been wanting to personally wear it for quite some time. 

I was told by Alden this shoe might not work, that it might look too much like any other penny loafer. But this shoe is the combination of a full strap loafer and Alden’s signature hand-stitched toe, and the only one we have seen in a leisure penny loafer. Plus, this shoe is made from Horween Leather’s ever popular Chromexcel and the forefront is unlined, giving it a slightly more casual attitude.

As it was recently pointed out by A Continuous Lean, we aren’t the first shop to offer an exclusive make-up by Alden, and we surely won’t be the last. We do make-ups at Harrison because it feels right for our shoes to have a story, for them to be unique. You can buy a brown penny loafer just about anywhere, but you can only get this one from us. As I am fond of saying, it might not be for everyone, but it might be right for you.

We choose Alden again and again for our make-ups because they care enough to do this for us. They allow us to have this kind of collaborative relationship. They also will tell us when they don’t think something will work. Granted, they finally gave in on this one (luckily) but we can design together. And we like what that kind of dialogue can produce.
