London shoemaker George Cleverley has served an illustrious roll-call of clients over the years, from stars of the silver screen to politicians and princes. It’s known, above all, for its elegance: a pair of George Cleverley shoes is a rather more dandyish proposition than the stout, muscular Derbies and brogues that emerge from the workshops of Northamptonshire. This slipper-like loafer in burnt-orange suede is a case in point. Named Hedsor after the Buckinghamshire village where the company’s CEO Mr George Glasgow Jr married his wife, Ms Veronique Glasgow, in August of last year, it’s a shoe designed for special occasions. We’ve styled it here with a pair of silk and linen-blend trousers from Caruso, a slub-cotton overshirt from Story Mfg., a floral-print shirt from Loewe and a suede belt from Anderson’s. All four brands share George Cleverley’s reputation for super-high production standards, while the shirt, jacket and belt share a similarly earthy colour palette.
Thank you, Mr. Porter.
