EXPERIENCED AND PASSIONATE TEAM

We don't just believe in the products we sell, we are passionate about them. The level of service comes with great attention to detail and a lot of expertise on the products.
Born into a family of shoemakers, with a three generations of experience, my father Peter van den Eertwegh launched a new concept in the field of shoe service and retailing in 1988: Shoes & Shirts. The name says it all; shoes and shirts for men with highest standards of quality, in all details completed with a collection of accessories every gentlemen would need.
The experience and contacts acquired during his international work as a purchaser and consultant have given him the knowledge and base to form the core of the original selection of manufacturers and ateliers with whom Shoes & Shirts cooperates, since the very beginning, and with many of them still today.
Only the top products from these manufacturers constitute the wide range of products that you can find at Shoes & Shirts, with quality as the basis of still largely handcrafted products.
I (Jules van den Eertwegh) have started to work within the family business, during weekends, already since I was very young. After my International Business studies I gained retail experience as well as experience in the making of shoes. In 2011 the time was right to get full-time on board and run this beautiful shop together with my father. My wife Véronique, with retail and online communication experience, runs the shop with me since 2017, but was already closely involved with the online activities of Shoes & Shirts for many years before.
Peter is now enjoying well deserved family time with my mother and his grand children. But my wife and I, together with a great team will make sure that Shoes & Shirts will be continued in the same thoughts as how the company was founded over 35 years ago: being a world wide specialist for those whose are looking for high quality shoes, shirts and accessories in a cosmopolitan style that is not subject to fickle trends. The quality conscious men will surely understand what we preserve.
With our well experienced team, you can be sure there is a lot of knowledge of craft and sense for tradition present in our stores.
