We're a men's shoe store in New York City. We offer classic styles that represent quality, comfort, and value.

You can shop online or visit us at 10 Christopher Street.

We’re excited and honored to begin our collaboration with esteemed belt maker Duret Paris. All belts are custom made and handsewn in their Parisian workshop. More details to follow next week on our website. (at Leffot)

We’ll be closed for Labor Day next week, but we will open again!

Throwback to the time we collaborated with Mr. Wooster.

Take a look inside your shoes and you’ll see some numbers and letters that seem to correspond to nothing at all. You probably know how to find your size, and likely your width, too, but what does all that other stuff mean? Let’s find out.

Edward Green

image

Inside an Edward Green shoe, you’ll find the size listed in both UK and US sizes (7/7.5), the width (E), the last (202), and the order number (95178). The specs will usually be in an oval near the heel, but in some shoes, particularly those that are unlined, you’ll find them on the tongue. Note: The slash between the UK and US sizes is often mistaken for a 1, but it’s really a slash (we promise).

Alden

image

In an Alden, you’ll see the size (7), of course, but you’ll also find two widths: one for the heel (B) and one for the ball (D). There’s also the model number (45164H) and some production information (4C27 018 2).

Gaziano & Girling

image

Gaziano & Girling keeps things straightforward with the model’s name (Astaire), last (DG70), size (7.5), width (E), and order number (607). You’ll generally find this information on the underside of the tongue.

Saint Crispin’s

image

Check the tongue of a pair of Saint Crispin’s and you’ll find, from left to right, the model number (553), skin (BCK), color (071), sole (GE8), and the size (6.5), width (E), and order number (11351).

Corthay

image

Look inside a pair of Corthays and you’ll find nothing but smooth, soft leather. If you’re looking for the size, flip over the shoe and look at the sole. This pair’s in size 8.

John Lobb

image

Most models from Lobb will have their size printed near the heel, though some will have it on the tongue. In this pair you can see the model name (Lopez), size (6.5), width (E), and last (4395).

Church’s

image

Church’s can be tricky. The size is listed without a decimal point, so here you’ll find that a size 7 is marked 70. A 7.5 would be marked 75. There’s also the width (F), last (173), some production information, and the model name (Grafton).

Quoddy

image

Quoddy keeps things simple. You’ll find the size (8) on the tongue.
