Alfred Sargent for J.Crew

July 25, 2013

Go ahead and add renowned English footwear manufacturer Alfred Sargent to the wide range of shoe options that are now available with the monarch of menswear collaboration, J.Crew. Now offering a double monk, longwing and brogue boot (shown above), these British beauties would make a welcomed addition to any man’s closet.

From J.Crew, “Family-owned UK cobbler Alfred Sargent has been making shoes in the traditional English manner since 1899—that’s four generations if you’re counting. Our design team worked hand in hand with the cobbler to create this exclusive collection, crafted from genuine Italian leather. Bench-made by master craftsmen in their Northamptonshire workshop in a process that takes eight weeks per pair and involves over 200 separate steps, the shoes are finished with a genuine Goodyear welt—meaning the sole is sewn on rather than cemented, so you can have them resoled over and over again. In other words, this pair might be the last you’ll ever need to buy.”

Make your way over to J.Crew for more details.

    Brilliant shoe. I believe AS also produces the Sid Masburn double monk(which I own). Sid might be a little miffed – also, these are selling for $75 less. In any event the shoe is amazing.

    Query how these are at all different from the double monks A.S. made for Sid Mashburn….

    Yes, I own Sid’s DM’s (http://wp.me/pXXtj-Gc) and the main difference between the two seem to be that Mashburn monks have a higher vamp, darker stacked sole and slightly narrower toe box.
