The colour, type of leather, embellishments, and other intricate details all play a role in defining the occasions a dress shoe is best suited for.

Here we break down some of our favourite footwear pairings.

Oxford > Business Meeting: Francium Black Leather

Oxford > Business Meeting

When it comes to suiting up for business, there's no better choice than a classic Oxford. 'Francium’ has been expertly designed to carry you through those demanding days of back-to-back meetings with the inclusion of hidden support and cushioning in every footbed.

Caring for your Dress Shoes

Our range of men’s dress shoes are hand-crafted in Portugal, a place renowned for their rich history of crafting men’s footwear using premium materials and traditional techniques. They are meticulously constructed with various features to ensure durability, and given a little TLC they will last you for years to come.

Leather is best cared for with a good quality polish or conditioner, that will prevent the leather from drying out and cracking over time. It is important to keep your leather hydrated!

If you have opted for suede dress shoes, be sure to spray them with a good quality waterproofing spray before your first wear. This will protect them from water absorption and attracting marks. If you do need to remove any dry, dirty marks from your suede shoes, we recommend a suede brush. Apply moderate pressure and work the nap continuously in the same direction.

Modern patent leathers are smooth leather with a plastic coating. This means they are water resistant, but will still benefit from a “lack polish”. It is a patent specific protector that helps to preserve the elasticity of the patent and prevent cracking.
