William Shakespeare wrote in his play Hamlet "What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty"! Shakespeare work spoke directly of man's great qualities like honesty, integrity, creative excellence, and courage. It also drove the concept that man in all his wonder was real and required that a sense of absolute right and wrong be brought forth in all human endeavors. Indeed this concept is a part of the core requirements that make up our society. These very same concepts were known and implemented into the work ethic of a company formed by an immigrant English shoemaker Johnston & Murphy.
Founded in 1850 Johnston & Murphy couples old world shoemaking techniques with new world style and comfort. Johnston & Murphy has made shoes for every U.S. president since Millard Fillmore. Johnston & Murphy has earned a reputation for fine materials, meticulous craftsmanship and enduring comfort. Today, headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Johnston & Murphy is one of the few companies in the world that makes a line of shoes entirely by hand.
Johnston & Murphy offers men's belts, hosiery, wallets, money clips, jackets, shoes, sweaters, trousers, sweaters, polos, shirt, crewnecks, bombers, vests, hats, boots, loafers, wing tips, corporate dress, and corporate casual shoes.
Johnston & Murphy footwear is some of the finest shoes on the face of the earth. For an all around quality shoe consider the Deerfield. This black calf tasseled wingtip takes you from breakfast meeting to boardroom and on to evening socializing in timeless style and comfort.
For a corporate casual look consider the Mele. Available in either tan or brown, this soft-touch penny moccasin has smooth calfskin with a vamp of supple-grained deerskin.
For a very distinct cashmere pullover look at the Windowpane Cashmere Crewneck in either coffee or chocolate coloring. The oversized windowpane check creates the subtlest striping on Johnston & Murphy's super-luxurious two-ply cashmere pullover with chevron ribbing at the classic crewneck and sleeves.
