For those that don't know, J.M. Weston is French. I feel that I must state this, as I, like many people at one point have thought that due to their Anglo-Saxon sounding name, they were British. But is not the case. That being, they are actually in reality, one of the strongest (if not the strongest) and oldest names in French footwear. Their classic penny loafer has been reinvented 10 million ways by 10 million different companies, yet no one can do it quite like Weston! Name lesson's aside, J.M. Weston, who once adorned the side of Burlington Gardens, has taken up a new residence on 60 Jermyn St., now being in their rightful place along side all of the other shoemakers of London! I must say that it was a smart choice of relocation, not only so that they could be next to all of their direct competitors, but also because if I must be honest, this shop is a million times better than the old one, not only for size, but for lighting, decor and the feeling that says, "please, come in."
Nevertheless, I paid a visit last week in order to take some pictures to show all of you. So that being, please enjoy and stayed tuned for next week as I start to divulge the beauty that I discovered in Paris!!
Have a lovely weekend to all,
