Blake Stitched By Hand
This style is constructed using the Blake method. It’s characterized by a double binding (blake and rapid, precisely): while the first attaches upper, lining and insole; the second one secures the insole and outside sole together. The shoes are therefore easy to resole, and have greater flexibility.
Full Calf Lined Interior
These shoes are fully-lined with soft calfskin leather, which means ultimate comfort. Most companies will only partially line their shoes, but we go the extra mile because it means a more comfortable shoe and less break-in time.
What is MTO Standard Production?
A Sartorial's Affair
Tweed has a long and distinguished history. From its role as the fabric of royalty, and right through to a certain fictional detective, tweed has become something of the national dress in Britain, and the rest of the world.
We offer a large variety of sartorial fabrics, from delicate wools to soft flannels. Patterns like the classic houndstooth –popularized by Coco Channel on the sixties– or the Blackwatch plaid –one of the many Scottish tartans. Each one representing its unique values and personality.
The Zurigo Shoe Last
This style is produced using our most famous shoe last, which features a round toe for a classic english look. The Zurigo last is a perfect choice for either a casual look or a more contemporary shape to wear with formal clothes. The classic fit and slight almond toe creates a beautiful last with a timeless and versatile shape.
Meet the Classic Leather Sole
There are many reasons why leather has been used for centuries for soles: it’s hardwearing, flexible, practical, long lasting and beautiful. It’s usually considered the dressiest of all soles, gets that designation because it has the slimmest profile, so it looks best with your dress pants. It is painted by hand, and then brushed by our artisans for an impeccable finish.
Entirely cut by hand
The Clicking Department is the first stage of production. The
highly skilled Clickers (whose name derives from the 'click'
sound made when the knife is removed from the leather) use
predetermined patterns to intricately cut the shoe's uppers and
linings. Each Clicker design and grind the blade of their knife to
their own personal taste and working preference.
