Life is a Game of Limitations
"I wish I was a little bit taller
I wish I was a baller"
It's not my place to correct Skee-Lo's sub-par command of the subjunctive; instead, I'll focus on the spirit of his lyrics and not their grammatical shortcomings. Skee-Lo, in his infinite or accidental wisdom, has, in only two lines, underlined the importance of appreciating both your strengths and your literal, or metaphorical weaknesses.
This is not a polemic encouraging you to follow in the steps of Hisateru or Ms. Richards; instead, the aim is to encourage you to acknowledge your own limitations. We try to lead by example, and thus, we won't go around giving you financial advice, weather reports, or medical diagnoses. We know what is beyond the scope of our expertise. That's why we do shoes. We know shoes. We make beautiful shoes. Yet, we will proclaim our ignorance (with regard to the manufacture, not the recognition) of other beautiful accessories.
Thus, we have hunted down everything you, yes you dear reader, could ever wish for during this holiday season. Our aim is to ensure you need not wander further than the confines of our charming shop. There are cufflinks. Cufflinks of stepped steel and brass for the man with tastes that tend towards the minimal yet elegant, and then gold and rhodium plated numbers for the man who prefers a little more luxury. The links are made by the very charming Alice Walsh. Her designs are, and remain, quietly confident and pair well with the spirit of our Millers: sleek, elegant, and subtle.
For neckwear we chose the rather appropriately named Augustus Hare, although we must lament that the similarity is in name alone, and no actual familial connections exists between him and our fearless leader. Augustus Hare has stocked us with a beautiful array of cashmere and woven silk ties. It is best to come in and see, and by that I mean feel, the ties in person – there is an inexplicable elegance to their weight, to the way they knot, to the very feel of them in your hand.
Finally, we have the pleasure of stocking (wait for the pun) quite a range of socks. We chose a beautiful set of hand dyed Mohair and nylon numbers, from the wonderful Marwood. These socks are sure to keep your precious feet warm in the winter months, and yet the socks are not so precious that they can't be thrown in the dryer. The best of both.
I promise only the most miserable of Grinches will find fault with our selection.
