Sir Jeremy Hackett visits "Maison Corthay", London

This week "Maison Corthay", London, had a very special visitor!
Storemanager Francois Pourcher was very pleased to welcome "Mr Classic" himself, Sir Jeremy Hackett, accompanied by the well-known Japanese photographer and journalist, Shu Tomioka.

On his blog www.jeremyhackett.com, he says:

I don't know about you but the recent trend for coloured shoelaces had completely passed me by; keep up Jeremy! A friend of mine, who is a shoe nut, sent me a text telling me about this current fashion phenomenon that was sweeping Milan. How could I have missed this revolution in Men’s fashion?

A few days later, I was passing a new shoe shop in Motcomb St called Corthay, a French bespoke shoemaker. In the window was a pair of black shoes with red shoelaces. Immediately I purchased the laces from the very charming and knowledgeable shop manager.
It struck me that here was a way to freshen up a pair of sensible black shoes or add a touch of colour to a pair of broken down battered brown brogues for the cost of a pair of shoelaces...

Customer Contribution: Arca, Bella & Wallet

All the way from Brisbane (Australia) we've got this Customer Contribution!!
Marty, thank you for your effort !!!

Dear Pierre Corthay Blog,

Please find photos of my little Corthay collection - consisting of:

 - Bella boots in blue suede
 - Arca in brown
 - Wallet in blonde croco

All items were purchased in the Paris store with the help of Corthay's lovely Thomas Kalflo.

My favourite is the Bella's, Thomas showed these to me and I fell in love with them immediately. Thomas advises that the Bella’s in blue suede were originally made for shop staff in a limited run, but Thomas had one pair left in my small size - from what he tells Pierre wasn't able to source this suede again so I have quite a rare beauty!

As you can see I am no photographer, but hope your readers will enjoy.

All the best,



Arca's on the 001 last

La beauté du geste World Tour, second stop: London

"Pierre Corthay is a remarkable artisan/artist and gifted with contagious generosity. He is the voice of the movie, without being its subject, and conveys, with grace and wisdom, ideas that, far from being timeless, offer a very contemporary outlook on wonderful trades that have probably been given up on too early."

"Based on the success of the movie and on the emotion it clearly inspires its audiences, Parisian Gentleman hase elected to screen “La Beauté du Geste” in Tokyo (Japan) on June 1st, before setting sail in Hong Kong, Macau, Seoul and New York prior to a public release in year end, possibly through television broadcast but most likely online or as a DVD including exclusive and bonus features."
