Editors notes

The Richmond Cap Toe Derby in Tan is the not only noticeably different from other Derbys on the market, but will make you feel like a million bucks when wearing them. With a slender design and hand burnished cap toe, the Richmond Derby stands out as a distinctive and refined Italian-made shoe with tons of attitude and charisma.

There are five eyelets on each side of the uppers, with an open Derby style lacing system and hand waxed laces. The toe and topline are weave printed, lending the Derby an interesting bit of detail.

This beautiful shoe also features a hand beaded turned seam cap, something you don't see every day on a men's Derby shoe, as well as a robust leather stacked heel and leather interior lining.

Finally, the hand applied tan colouring is rich, deep and versatile, meaning it can be teamed with a variety of outfits and styles. If you really want to make a statement, why not pair them with a pair of brightly toned red chinos with a checked navy shirt? Alternatively, black turned up chinos with a blue patterned shirt will work just as well.

For a more formal occasion, you could try a plain pair of pale stone suit trousers or smart chinos with a navy or black shirt. It is also possible to dress up a pair of smart jeans and button-up neutral shirt for casual occassions.

  • Five eyelets on each side of the upper
