We wish that we could tell you exactly which styles sell best, but one month we'll sell more Men's Black Captoes and the next month sell more White Captoes... the next month inexplicably the Black & White Wingtip is catching up!

Our customers tend to buy more of anything that's either new or black.

Women's favorites:
The Heeled 1940s Mary Jane, the Wingtip Athletic Mary Jane, the Women's Canvas Sneaker, the Velvet & Mesh Mary Janes, the 1930s d'Orsay Dance Sandal

Men's favorites:
The Captoes, Wingtips, Plaid & Herringbone Classic Dress Sneaker and the Retro Runners

The styles listed above are perennial favorites, but periodically many other styles will either overtake them in sales or come very close.


Most of our women's black skirts and red dresses sell well.

Our men's wide-leg trousers cross over into ballroom and salsa and come in an un-hemmed version so you don't have to worry about carrying different lengths.
