What defines a dress shoe? From the classic brogue to suede moccasins, owning a pair of men's smart shoes is more essential than ever this season.
Oxfords, the most timeless of dress shoes, are an excellent starting point. The versatile Oxford can be dressed up or down for formal and daily wear.
The Derby is similar to the Oxford (distinguished by its open lacing) and is considered a more casual dress shoe.
For an alternative to a laced dress shoe, a pair of snaffle-trimmed loafers will add a certain panache to any outfit.
The Timeless Classic
Sometimes you just can't beat a classic. The Derby dress shoe is a timeless hero style detailed with a wider silhouette; boasting an open lacing system with facings that are stitched on top of the vamp. Considered to be slightly less formal than an Oxford, this go-to style is an effortless way to amplify your formal look. Crafted from burnished leather our Sheath truly is an investment style that will transcend seasons.
The Snaffle-Trim Loafer
A quality men's loafer is an essential addition to any formal shoe collection and, thanks to its equal measures of comfort and flair, it’s particularly well-suited to tailoring. Boasting our bespoke ‘DD’ snaffle trim, our Sanction loafers are equally perfect for special or semi-formal occasions alike, whether paired with chinos and slim-fit trousers, they’re a timeless style worth investing in.
The Soft Moccasin
Blending effortless sartorial style with comfort, there's a reason the moccasin is an established style favourite. Thanks to its flexible soft sole, the heel-less moccasin silhouette lends itself to both formal and casual settings. New to our moccasin family, and traditionally detailed with woven detailing and a classic penny saddle, our premium soft suede driver Bradlay will provide the ideal finishing touch to everything from dress and chambray shirts, to tailored separates and chinos.
The Saddle Loafer
Invented and popularised in the 1960s, the beloved saddle silhouette is supposedly named after the piece of leather that is superimposed on the instep and that has the shape of a saddle. This men's loafer style has since made its mark as a key smart dress shoe to add timeless flair to all forms of tailoring. Crafted from supple suede, Silas is a sleek and versatile option that will pair seamlessly with just about any outfit.
