A New Alden Makeup

July 2, 2014

aldenmakeups

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.

The Barbour Heritage Collection

barbourjackets

Barbour jackets have to be one of the best spring jackets out there. Of course they are well made, great in the rain, and actually good for venturing out into the outdoors, but perhaps more than all that, they just look good.

Check out the two Barbour jackets below that we are carrying this spring because of their rain performance as well as their breathability. 

 

Tape Fly

Oxxford Trunk Show Spring 2014

March 31, 2014

Harrison-OxxfordPost02

We’ve always loved the sign that hangs in the shop at Oxxford in Chicago. It is time again for the Oxxford Trunk Show, this year with our new friend Gary Heskje. Gary will be bringing some exquisite fabrics for you to create your own made-to-measure piece. If you haven’t been to an Oxxford Trunk Show before, come by this Thursday and see what makes Oxxford the world’s best suit and sport coat, made in America. To sweeten the deal, we are giving a 10% discount on orders placed during the event. But even if you don’t intend to buy, come by and check out what makes this company so special.

See you Thursday the 3rd.

-Scott
