Tailor and Whisky Brands Combine To Create Men’s Shoe

By P. Joseph

British tailor Lutwyche has taken its first step into the men’s luxury shoe market with the production of the Dalmore Brogue – created as part of a collaboration with Scottish whisky maker Dalmore.

Available to buy for just one month at Lutwyche’s Clifford Street store in Central London, the shoe is made from sustainably sourced deerskin and is branded with the regal Dalmore stag’s head crest.

Upon purchase, each shoe will be personalised with the customer’s name, who will also receive a bottle of The Dalmore’s award-winning King Alexander III single malt whisky.

Lutwyche's founder, Tony Lutwyche, said: “We are extremely excited to be launching our first Lutwyche shoe in partnership with The Dalmore.

“Both brands pride themselves on their commitment to excellence, artisan craftsmanship and their rich heritage. We have created a classic shoe with timeless appeal and courtesy of Dalmore added a little extra something for our customers to mark the occasion.”

The Dalmore Master Distiller, Richard Paterson, said: “The Dalmore, like Lutwyche, prides itself on qualities of artisanship, exclusivity and excellence, so we’re delighted to be partnering with a like-minded brand on such a creative project.

“The skills that have been passed down through generations to create each drop of our whisky are matched by the craftmanship that goes into the creation of this shoe. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship between the two brands.”

The Dalmore shoe launches on the 27th of October and will be available to order until 27th November, priced at £550.
