Albam does classics and they do them well. They follow the philosophy of “it doesn’t have to be radically different, just a lot better”. Based in London, they operate solely on a mail order basis because they don’t believe in passing the costs on to the customer through a retailer so they manage to keep their cost fairly low for the quality you are getting. Everything is hand made by classic purveyors of traditional manufacturing from the Oxfords and Dessert boots in England to my favorite from the collection, the high top boat shoes which are manufactured in Maine. Rounding out the line are classic oxfords, Japanese denim and solid leather accessories. I’m surprised I haven’t heard of them sooner.
