John Rushton by Ivan Ogilvie

Filmmaker Ivan Ogilvie features renowned shoe retailer John Rushton, whose shop in London’s West End has thrived for over 30 years now, in this informative and surprisingly touching short piece. John not only extols the superiority of British shoemaking – as would be expected from such a revered expert on the trade – but also waxes philosophical about a range of subjects from the sartorial revolution that occurred in England when he was younger, to jazz greats like Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker to a pair of cordovan brogues he’s had for over 20 years. Definitely worth checking out for both anglophiles and casual wingtip wearers alike.
