Family-owned Crockett & Jones on Jermyn Street has been voted by Esquire as one of the top 50 retail shops for men. Hailing from Northampton, famous for its exemplary shoe manufacturing around the world, they specialise in ‘Goodyear’ welt shoes, widely regarded as the best technique for lasting quality.
When only the best equipment would do for Antarctic explorers, including Shackleton, and the armed forces at the beginning of the 20th century, Crockett & Jones were the people commissioned to make their footwear. Their reputation became widely known and the business grew, introducing new styles for every occasion in life, which is why modern men seeking the very best still come to them. In recent years, they received the accolade of providing shoes for Daniel Craig as James Bond in two movies.
The first boutique opened in 1997 and the 12 global locations they now own have become just as well reputed as their shoes as a result of excellent customer service and an atmosphere that brings the brands heritage and values to life. The Jermyn Street branch is the flagship of the brand offering the largest range of both men’s and women’s styles. The staff have a genuine passion for the product and the store is designed to make you feel right at home. A Portland stone fireplace is a particularly nice feature of the store and the area is used for discussing special orders and taking measurements.
In keeping with the tradition of the neighbourhood, their ’Special Order’ and full bespoke service means you won’t walk away feeling like you haven’t found the perfect fit or the exact style you want. Book an appointment at the store to discuss your needs and have your measurements taken and Managing Director Jonathan Jones will take care of the rest at their Northampton base. The factory in Northampton can also repair your Crockett & Jones shoes for you, just ask in store for details.
