If you haven’t seen a shoehorn in 20 years, you haven’t been to Benjamin Lovell Shoes. Remember those old steel foot measures? Benjamin Lovell uses those, too, just to make sure your dream shoe fits like a dream. Men’s brands—Clarks, Cole Haan, Johnston & Murphy, Merrell, Tsubo and others—are trendy, but the service is refreshingly old-fashioned.
