Classic Oxford shoes – the enduring timeless style
Here pictured are a pair of Dominique Saint Paul hand coloured classic Oxford shoes.
We make luxury artisan made footwear from our own workshop in the heart of Saigon.
We have been making our classic Oxford dress shoes for 6 years. They are our most popular and enduring style.
We called them “classic” Oxfords as they are just that. This simple, elegant style stands the test of time year in and year out. Style, not fashion for the modern gentleman. Quite timeless in fact.
We make this style of shoes for both ready to wear (RTW) and made to order (MTO).
You may well ask what is the difference between RTW and MTO shoes?
Simply put MTO allows you to choose the colours, we use a premium crust leather from Florence, Italy and with MTO shoes you have a choice of 5 width fittings in each size (13 sizes).
All our hand crafted shoes are also hand coloured, so you make it your own style.
We use a traditional Italian process where alcohol based dye colours are applied by hand, either as a solid colour or as gradients of one or more colours that we call “patina”. The shoes are hand polished with Italian creams and waxes.
Our dress shoes are Goodyear welted construction (machine stitched soles) which means that the outsole and heel, both full leather, can be replaced again and again to give the shoes a long life.
We have full after sales service for any work that you may need done – refurbishment, polishing and repairs. There are also competent people who do this is most western cities, in case you are not in Vietnam.
Please do contact us for more information.
You may visit us in our Saigon store – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (29 Dong Du, District 1) or at The Bespoke Club in Suntec City Mall in Singapore.
