On-line Ordering

I am happy to sell you shoes and accessories and ship them to you. I work with a very reputable 3rd party payment service (or gateway) that allows for swift and secure payment. After you have made your order and the payment is confirmed I will contact you regarding the fit of the shoes if I have noticed any irregularities. Shoe fitting can be a tricky business and with a little bit of information I can do a much better job of ensuring the shoes you want fit you properly.

 

About Us (Well, about Jeff).

Having worked in the footwear industry for the past 10 years, in retail, design and product development I figured it was time to start something for myself. I graduated from OCAD in industrial design and spent some time out west working before deciding to return to Toronto to start my business.

I was particularly impressed with a small boutique factory from Mexico I met a few years ago. I decided they would be a great fit for starting my women’s collection. The factory, Altura Siete makes their shoes by hand in small batches. Their design sense is intricate and delicate and their access to leather allows for an uncommonly multi-coloured palette.

My men’s (and now some women's) shoes are made in Portugal. My Portuguese factory provides a very high quality product, goodyear welted construction using proper leather lining and leather soles. I arrived at a small and interesting collection for gentlemen to enjoy, both to dress up in or to wear casually and I will continue to expand in new directions.

I team up with lots of local toronto and canadian designers to keep it fresh as well as carrying some amazing accessories from around the world. I carry cotton socks from Sweet Marcel, handmade Leather bags and accessories from Uppdoo and Bauxo, beautiful jewelry made locally in Toronto by Cayla Hache, merx, Dconstruct and Bauxo. Handmade bow ties from Cursor & Thread in Vancouver. Soaps and candles from Formulary 55, Fringe and Paddywax. Plus loads more coming in all the time.

My door is always open and I welcome everyone to drop by and have a look.

Cheers,

Jeff Brodawka
