Allen Edmonds is an upscale shoe manufacturing and retail company based in Port Washington, Wisconsin. The company was established in Belgium, Wisconsin in 1922. Allen Edmonds operates 32 retail stores in 17 states. It manufactures the vast majority of its shoes in the United States and several pairs in Italy. It is one of four American shoe companies, along with E. Vogel, Alden and Johnston & Murphy, that still make men's dress shoes domestically. The company delivers three lines of men's shoes, including dress shoes, dress casual shoes, and, since 2006, a collection of Casual Comfort shoes, which are rubber-soled leather shoes with athletic styling.
In 2006, 90% of the shares in the company were bought by Minneapolis-based investment firm Goldner Hawn Johnson & Morrison for $100 million.[1][2]

Albert E. Nettleon founded the A.E. Nettleton Company in Syracuse, NY, in 1879. The company produced shoes until 1984 when the Syracuse factory closed. The U.S. Shoe Corporation purchased the name around 1990 and continued to use the name for a short time, possibly manufacturing shoes in Spain. Edward Tognoni incorporated “Nettleton Shoes, Inc.” in Coral Gables, FL, in 2003, but has yet to produce any shoes.


Biography of Albert E. Nettleton (1850-c. 1945): Edward Nettleton, father to Albert, established one of the first boot and shoe stores in the village of Fulton, New York, about 1837, and ran the store until his death in 1864, when his sons, Franklin E. and Samuel W., succeeded him, and they in turn were succeeded by their brother, Augustus C. Nettleton. Albert, Edward’s fourth son, was born in Fulton, Oswego county, New York, October 29, 1850. His early education was acquired in the public schools and he graduated from the Falley Seminary, in Fulton, in 1869. Upon graduation, he found employment in the business of his brother, Augustus, and in 1872 Albert purchased the boot and shoe store from his brother. In 1875 Albert also established a shoe store in Cazenovia, New York, which he conducted until 1881, and from 1881 to 1884 he also conducted a shoe store in Lyons, New York. In 1879 he moved to Syracuse and purchased the boot and shoe factory of James R. Barrett. Albert then formed a partnership with W. A. Hill and the partnership conducted business under the name A. E. Nettleton & Company. Within a decade, the Nettleton Shoe Company employeed 600 workers.

Albert married Lucy Augusta Poucher (1866-1915)

Devoting such meticulous attention to the lapel is just one step in the 23-hour process of fashioning a typical Oxxford suit. Only the purists use natural canvas blended from goat hair and wool for the interior linings. Of these, Oxxford alone uses hot water rather than steam to shrink the canvas, thereby ensuring that the suit retains its shape after innumerable wearings, pressings, and cleanings. The company selects the finest Italian and English worsted wools, gabardines, and flannels, as well as premium Scottish tweeds and cashmeres, and every seam is hand-stitched with silk thread for flexibility. When it comes to the most overworked elements of a suit—the buttons and buttonholes—Oxxford chooses genuine buf-falo horn buttons, and each buttonhole is cut and sewn entirely by hand and stitched twice—from the inside and the outside. While many suit makers hide a garment’s flaws with Bemberg silk linings throughout, Oxxford’s suits are always quarter-lined to allow more fluid movement. Finally, Oxxford employs an exclusive patented trouser design with pleats that expand inward and pockets that are sewn into the waistband so objects can be carried without sagging and destroying the shape of the slacks. - See more at: http://robbreport.com/Style-Best-of-the-Best-Suits-Oxxford-Clothes.aspx#sthash.nQDqxvyD.dpuf

Highlights:
- "But Bush's past style lapses are forgivable because, since his inauguration he's been wearing some of the best tailored garments -- Oxxford suits."
- "This guiding principle ensures Oxxford continues to create top-notch garments for a price --$2,000 to $14,000 --that loyal customers are willing to pay."

Oleg Cassini’s designs for the First Lady, ‘The Jackie Look’ are recognized as being the "single biggest fashion influence in history" by film costume designer, Edith Head. Cassini's contemporary designs such as the A-line, Sheath and the Empire Strapless continue to remain influential and predominant today.[2]
His passions including sports and Native American culture fueled his work with freshness and imagination, creating innovative looks fueled by his very personal feeling that: "To be well dressed is a little like being in love."[2]
