John Lobb City II

Black captoe oxfords are a staple of classic men’s clothing. They’re appropriate for formal wear and business settings. John Lobb continues this tradition with their elegant City II model. Made in supple calfskin with single leather soles, they’re one of the first shoes you should add to your wardrobe.

Alden Captoe Balmoral, Black Calfskin

The black captoe balmoral is the most classic style of dress shoe and is appropriate for any social function. We’re now stocking a pair from Alden in the Hampton last.

If you wear suits regularly, the captoe bal can be a standby, the kind of shoe that will look classic with any relatively formal suit. Wear it as a subtle, classic compliment to a serious wardrobe.

If you don’t wear suits on a regular basis, the captoe bal is just the shoe for special occasions. With care, you could wear these to every special occasion and important meeting that you attend for the rest of your life. Either way, you’ll be well dressed.

Rider Boot Co. Richmond Boot Restock

The beautiful Rider Richmond Boot has just been restocked in Black. The boot was originally made to order for a client, but we received so many requests that we made it a stock shoe. It’s now one of our most popular styles.

This incredibly versatile boot is made from Black Horween Shell Cordovan and Black Scotch Grain Calfskin. Sestriere soles, speed hooks, and Rider’s 42 last make it easy to wear and use.
