Thanks, Harvey.

My understanding is that the current owners of Reynolds Shoes bought the business (or the business name) from R E W Reynolds. They use a shoemaker, possibly in Northampton, but I don't know if he's tha same person used by R E W. However, they're very good people to deal with, and very obliging.

When I ordered my first pair of shoes, I wanted some in brown, although they had only produced black to date, and they were happy to oblige. They sent me a pair of black to try for size, which I did, and then returned to them. They made up my brown pair, and I acquired a black pair shortly afterwards. I've been totally satisfied with the quality of the shoes.
