Handgrade Collection

DISCONTINUED PRODUCT

This product has now been discontinued from our 'Retail Collection', but we are still able to produce this style through our Special Order service. If this is of interest, please place a Special Order enquiry. You can also view similar or recommended styles below.


To commemorate Crockett & Jones's 20th year on Jermyn Street, three styles which featured in the very first retail collection have been remodelled using our highest level of skill and craftsmanship. CONNAUGHT, CAVENDISH and CHELSEA have been given the Midas touch: the finest tan antique calf skins available anywhere in the world have been finely hand polished and burnished to bring out the natural depth of colour that can only be achieved with great skill. Bark tanned leather soles with the original 90s logo and sole finishing, complete a capsule collection that pays homage to a journey which is set to continue.

Last No. 236


Produced in January 1961. Last 236 is a Main Collection last with a blunt round toe, the most traditional Crockett & Jones toe shape used for formal business Oxfords. Connaught is now the only remaining style on last 236, with an air of the English shoe trade from years gone by. There are no plans to discontinue this traditional toe shape with its slightly shorter forepart.

What does it mean?

Oxford


The most easily recognisable of all classic styles, is the elegant English Oxford. A formal style that dates back over two hundred years, it is thought to have been named by the students at Oxford University, although it is almost certain that the style predates this ‘naming’ further still. The sequence of operations for constructing an Oxford differs to a Derby. The Inside and outside Quarters are stitched underneath the Vamp and the tongue is stitched in separately underneath the Quarters/Vamp/Facing. Often referred to as ‘Closed Lacing’.

Hand Grade Leather Sole

High quality ‘bark tanned’, hand-stained leather sole with channelled stitching and a gentleman’s corner to reduce suit trouser snagging! A masterpiece of craftsmanship.

Last 236
