Editors notes

The Tan Benson Wholecut Oxford dress shoe is a smart choice for any refined gentleman. Oozing with elegance, the Oxford shoe’s sleek upper is hand-crafted from a single piece of Italian calf leather, making it modern and minimalist with a seamlessly smooth surface. The hand stitched sole and interior leather lining ensures this dress shoe is long lasting and comfortable to wear.

With a pointed, hand burnished chisel toe, the shape of the Oxford shoe gives off a sense of charm and class, which is bound to make you feel great about wearing them.

There are five eyelets on each side of the upper, with a closed-lacing system. Each lace is waxed by hand for a shiny, tidy finish.
