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.
For many years Edward Green has been famous for making classic English shoes. We’ve just restocked two of their signatures — the Chelsea and the Piccadilly. Both are made in EG’s versatile Dark Oak calfskin, which pairs well with nearly any color. These are two of the most beautiful and useful shoes you can find. They’re elegant, subtle, and never go out of style.
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.
