Johnston & Murphy Hand Mades 1992 Catalog

Johnston & Murphy 1992 Catalog

Below are images from an almost vintage Johnston & Murphy catalog. I scanned the catalog so the images are better than my previous attempt with the 1962 Bostonian catalog.

Looking at the catalog, its interesting that all the shoes appear to have been made in the USA. Florsheim was already producing shoes overseas in 1992. Johnston & Murphy closed their US factory in 2002. So the manufacturing change over happened relatively fast. The 1992 J&M marketing messages reminds me of current Allen Edmonds marketing.

What was surprising about the price sheet was that the Johnston and Murphy “HANDMADES” line retailed for $1000. That’s about $1700 USD in 2016. Serious cash. I need a pair of those spade soled “Regency” wing tips. Yes. And a pair of the golf shoes.

Based on the pricing sheet, I would rank the lines like this: Johnston & Murphy HANDMADES > Crown Aristocraft > Aristocraft > Heritage > Optima.
