Calf town shoes start at $600 and take approximately three months to complete. "A well-antiqued, plain-toed chestnut-brown oxford is the usually ordered shoe from us," says John Hlustik. "We do a very elegant shoe. Neither heavy and clunky nor slick. I'd say it's an understated gentleman's shoe."

Calf shoes from $1,250, with 10 to 12 weeks to make. "The cap-toed oxford, with or without a medallion, is a popular classic with us," says Ercolino. "But I also like many of the styles that harken back to the 1940s--like the two-toned spectators."

Prices start at $2,400 for basic shoes, which take four to six months to complete. Lobb, however, is happy to do calf and crocodile saddle shoes, brogues with elastic side panels or blue calf Norwegian slippers as well.
