Gentlemen’s Footwear Sale and Trunk Show

One of my favorite shops, Gentlemen’s Footwear, is having a clearance sale on floor model samples. That means items that have been tried on in-store — so they may have some light creasing across the vamp — but haven’t been worn outside. This allows you to get a terrific deal on almost-new items.

The sale includes tailored suits, sport coats, and overcoats from the Neapolitan brand Orazio Luciano, a company known for their soft tailoring. There are some staple four-seasons suits in there for about $1,600, as well as sport coats for $1,395. The store’s entire selection of Drake’s ties is also available at 20% off with the code accessory20.

Most of what you’ll find, however, are high-end shoes from brands such as Alden, Edward Green, and Carmina. One of my favorite penny loafers, Edward Green’s Picadilly, is available at $795 (pricey, but a good deal less than the model’s full price of $1,300). It’s a sleek and sophisticated penny loafer that looks a bit more conservative than Italian slip-ons. I think it has the ideal shape if you’re looking to wear something with sport coats.

Value-minded readers may also want to look at the shoes from Bow Tie and Herring, which are Goodyear welted and made from full-grain leathers, but sell for between $200 and $300 (a terrific value). With the current sale (25% off with the code bowtie25), you can get some handsome brogues, chukkas, or penny loafers for as little as $183. You can see the full details of the sale at their site.

Finally, for readers in the Bay Area, Gentlemen’s Footwear is coming to San Francisco this week for a trunk show. Details for the event:

  • Dates: Wednesday, April 11th in the evening until Friday, April 13th noon.
  • Location: San Francisco’s Grand Hyatt in Union Square. Call or text (714) 865-5754 for the exact suite number.
  • Tailoring services: Made-to-measure tailoring will be available from Orazio Luciano. The measuring and fitting process will be done by the shop’s in-house tailor, Sam, but with the cutting and making process done by Orazio Luciano. They’ll also have some ready-to-wear suits available from B&Tailor, a popular South Korean shop specializing in soft tailoring.
  • Shoes and Accessories: Customers can stop by to custom order MTO shoes from Carmina and Edward Green, although the shop encourages you to contact them first so they can bring the correct trial shoes for you to try on. They’ll also have some things from Zonkey Boot, Drake’s, and NOMOS on display.
  • Appointments and Contact: Appointments are highly encouraged, although not strictly necessary. If you’d like them to bring something specific from their shop, you can also contact them.
