If you caught our recent post on brogues or our even earlier post on driving shoes, it should go without saying that at Street Gentry we understand that quality footwear forms the basis of gentlemanly style. That’s why we love Antoine + Stanley, a brand that provides footwear to compliment any outfit. Founded in 2005 by Australian based designer Paul Waddy, the brand was born from his frustration at not finding a shoe brand in Australia to match European standards. With no previous experience of shoe making, Waddy studied the art of cobbling and created Antoine + Stanley with a clear aim: ” to create a men’s shoe label that combined the flawless craftsmanship of European brogues, with the modern man’s quest to establish his own fashion identity.” With eye-catchingly colourful brogues, desert boots and loafers, each of which are intricately handmade – Antoine + Stanley combine style with quality. It is of little surprise that having launched in the UK in only 2012, the brand has been quickly snapped up by ASOS. Check out a few of our or favourites and visit ASOS for the full Antoine + Stanley AW13 collection.
