Can we talk about derbies/oxfords and dress shoes in general? There's always so many sneaker threads but I've never seen any dress shoe threads.

My pair of derbies are badly beaten and every site having a sale isn't selling anything nice, do you guys know any lowkey artisan brands?

Stick with a nice pair of Brogues, not too chunky and not too slim. They're the ultimate smart shoe because you can dress them up or down and get away with it. Just make sure you go with a full or semi brogue.

how 2 wear derbies casually, all i see is cuffed jeans i dont like that shit

Brown or black /fa/ ?
My current dilemma is that my existing black oxfords are really shit.
But I'd also like to get brown for diversity, but then the other part of me says black quality ones is a better investment to start with.
>>
>>10798604
Black.

What are some budget derbies /Oxfords such as the red wing 101 postman's
>>
>>10798604
you can wear black with pretty much anything, where has brown has to be coupled properly.

derby? oxford? with or without broguing?
>>
>>10795375
you know what? im going to give you the tip of the day. theres a small shoe company in arkansas called "neil m" and they make high quality oxfords and business casual shoes. basically they are simple, well made oxfords and cap toe shoes (nothing flashy looking) made in the usa. they retail for around $250-300, but because they arent that popular and are realtively unknown, you can find them on ebay often times for 20-30 bucks a pair in near new condition. I have a few pair and the leather is really nice and they seem like they will last quite a long time.

UK 7/41 Oxford or derby, no broguing. OP here.

I just picked up some brown cap toe oxfords, are they too formal or can I wear them with raw denim and trousers? Everything more or less says you need to wear with a suit

>>
>>10800373
if they are plain like that, yes, they are more formal. But they look great with light colour trousers and navy jackets.
>>
>>10800379
Really really like the herrings, in terms of quality which would be better, those or the sanders? And I have been thinking of getting a more casual derby not for dress wear from SANDRO paris, any idea if their leather is good?
>>
>>10800392
in terms of quality the sanders are better, just because they are using french calf. The Herrings are done in Spain, therefore a little bit cheaper, but the craftmanship is very good. And is calf leather anyway.
>>
I ordered some black derbies from kenzo because I liked the look of em are they any good in terms of quality
>>
>>10800413
Samders seem to be out of stock in my size anyway. Where did you learn that sanders use french calf?
>>
>>10800413
Also, are all the other major English shoe makers listed under the herrings website (and have links to them) like loake and churchs subsidaries of herring?
>>
>>10800442
the diplomat line use french calf leather, it´s on the sander´s webpage. Sorry they are out of stock, I thought they had it.
Check these ones too: http://www.shoepassion.com/formal-shoes/no-599.html

and even though they are not black, they are so beautiful:

>>
>>10800426
I didn´t know Kenzo did formal shoes. Can you link them?

>>10800465
No, they are brands on their own. Herring hires them, sometimes, to produce shoes for them under the Herring name, but those are produced in England. I don´t know which spanish maker does the ones in Spain.

Allen Edmond. Be warned though, the soles don't last that long. I stupidly wore mine like my Red Wings, being my only other Goodyear welted shoe, and within half a year the sole was down the welt compared to 1 1/2 years strong on the boots.

Rate these sandro? Except mine are fully black retailed for €350 friend wants to sell them unworn to me for 110.
>>
>>10803111
depends on how old are you. That might look like a formal shoe, but you should wear it very casual, with jeans and t-shirts.
The price is great, but you can still find some really nice shoes for 110 euros, if you are lucky.

Bought these Cheaney's a while back for an unbelievable price, and man does the leather impress after wearing nothing but docs my whole life.

I'm still looking for the perfect black pair that'll last until my dying breath but that's a fortune to spend on another day.

Church's shannon derby. Very similar to the raf derby.
>>
>>10803175
I actually couldn't say much more than that they are made in England. I have a feeling they are some form of diffusion because of how much I payed. Good leather is good leather though.

The sole is just Vibram rubber which to me was actually a plus.
>>
>>10803242
they look very nice. And yes, Vibram soles are a plus.
>>
>>10799504
wait shit did I miss these?
>>10799322
I'd tell you to get jack erwin, meermins, or wait for a sale from AE before dropping 200 on a shit produc
>>
>>10800587
good thing GYW shoes can be resoled, eh?
are your red wings also leather-soled? it's always struck me as odd that RW will do that, despite their reputation as a "tougher" brand

if you do resole, consider getting dainite (or stud) soles for a sort of dressier but still durable sole
>>
>>10803170
>>10803242
usually I find it weird to see thicker soles like vibrams on oxfords, but in this case it looks great
very nice cop

I really want some chunky derbies

you sure you want a whole cut derby? not a cap toe or anything?

i'm not really a fan of cap toes, whole cut derbies are much more versatile in my opinion.

I found the APC surplus store while i was in Paris yesterday and got these black derbies for 50% off
>>
>>10804568

I'm not sure if these are the same ones, but they look much better irl
>>
>>10800373

The closed style lacing is a little too formal to be worn with jeans.
>>
>>10804659
I know that that's technically true, but will most people really look closely enough at your shoes to see that you're wearing oxfords and not derbies? And if they do, who on earth would care?
>>
>>10804576
they look very good, just copped some similar ones from common projects for £150. I love derbies, nice cop man
>>
>>10804775
me.
and is not just for someone who is into shoes, is because the close lacing make them look more compact and create a more strict style. Imo I don´t think they are too formal to be worn with jeans, but a t-shirt would be too much.
>>
>>10804849
where did you get those?
>>
>>10804890
barneys, in store on the new years day sale. retail is £365 ($535), so I'm pretty happy haha

Why do I often find designer derbies for >$500 without good year welt?

a lot of designers cbf to go beyond a blake welt
isn't a really big deal imo

absolutely not. On that price range you can get something way better,
>>
>>10811933
Define better, to me these are amazing
>>
>>10811936
the texture added to the leather is quite damaging to it. If you want some texture try with scotch grain leather.
>>
>>10811936
the soles look pretty silly, they would be fine for a 200 dollar pair but at 500 dollar dress shoes I would be going for smooth leather soles(or all the texturing not visible from the side profile) with possible nails in it for icy weather

I wear oxfords with jeans all the time. As long as it's a sleek look with a button up, you're away.

quite a peculiar choice you made there: black brogues and brown oxfords. Good, that sets you apart.
>>
>>10811963

>brogues

you're a savage
>>
>>10811988
if you have only two formal shoes is better to have a black plain oxford and a brown brogue.
>>
>>10811978
I like the black derbys because they're chunky, have some kind of attitude. I don't actually wear black often.
The oxfords are actually ox blood/ burgundy, they immediately appealed to me. Theyre versatile, and i wear a charcoal suit
>>
>>10811996
do you have any problem lacing those oxfords? I have a high instep, so I have to be careful with which last I choose for my oxfords.

$1000 flat i think?
definitely most durable shoes I own. Dad's got a ~1500 pair of john lobb's and those are less durable (comparing sole & leather toughness). Both shoes also have personalized cobblers to go to for repairs (city/continent dependent) and should last 10-20 years if not a lifetime

Seriously? It reduces formality, there is nothing wrong with it.
It's not like there is any other style for a more casual oxford.
>>
>>10814646
Yeah, it makes oxfords more casual. I just personally think they look gross.
