Welcome to the latest installment of The Well-Rounded Gent, a new feature that focuses on higher end clothing and accessories for the big and tall man. Send your questions, comments and anything you’d like us to cover here. Sitting in for Brandon, who will return next week, is the very gentlemanly Bruce.
Being a well-rounded gent means pulling together every part of your look to create a cohesive style. From head to toe, you want your outfit to be well thought out and reflective of your personality and attention to detail from head to toe. Though we mentioned the company in a Thing of the Week article a few weeks ago, I felt Grenson Shoes required more of an in-depth look. Founded in England in 1866, Grenson has been making Goodyear Welted shoes for generations. Welted shoes take much longer to manufacture than other types of shoes, but they can be resoled when needed, ensuring that the shoes last much longer.
Grenson offers shoes for almost every occasion – from boots, to oxfords, to loafers – you’ll find more than 90 combinations of style, color, and material available for purchase. The website gives you the ability to refine your search very specifically depending on what you’re looking for. You can search by category, material, fitting, sole, color, style and lasts (which refers to the anatomical representation of the foot – the foot shape). Sizes are available to a US 13 in all shoes.
Grenson’s prices reflect the quality of shoes and the level of craftsmanship that goes into create them. You’ll find shoes starting at £170.00 (about $265 USD) and going up from there. If you’re looking for a shoe to add to your wardrobe that will be with you for years to come, take a look at Grenson Shoes. Did we mention they’ve added a women’s shoes section as well?
