J.M. Weston: French, Timeless Style

J.M. Weston - Collage_updated

J.M. Weston may sound English, but actually, J.M. Weston is French indeed; Parisian to be exact.  This lovely shoe establishment dates back to 1891.  A father and son team worked side by side to create women and men’s leather shoes with timeless workmanship combined with flavors of contemporary influences.  With each step, the spirit of J.M. Weston luxuriously serves the soles of your feet.

Armorial

In Paris and London there is an establishment that still believes in taking things one step at a time.  Rather than churning printing products in a robotic fashion, this charming bespoke printer applies pride, care, and great precision which has become the hallmark of it’s reputation at Armorial.

Stationary and printing these days has lost its substance and craft.  Luckily, Armorial has retained the tradition of craftsmanship by preserving the fine techniques of the trade; as is evident in the attention to detail and quality.

 A discerning connoisseur would be inspired to write on such fine stationary or present a business card with great pride knowing that the authentic style, opulence, and integrity of the card conveys a parallel of distinction similar to that of the presenter.
