Produced in July 2015. Last 375 is a Main Collection last, with a medium round toe, increased toe depth and slimmed down back part. A last that is directly associated to another, 375 shares its toe shape with 325! A development that has seen us improve upon the heel clipping to produce a closer fitting version of the highly regarded 325. 375 will more than likely become the loafer last counterpart to the 325 story.
Derby shoes are possibly the most versatile of all shoe styles, bridging the gap between smart and smart casual wear with ease. A Brogue Derby is easily the most recognisable variation, made popular with the introduction of the full country Brogue which was developed for practical uses in the fields. The sequence of operations for constructing a Derby, differs to an Oxford. Inside and outside Quarters are stitched to a tab point either side of the vamp and the tongue is cut as part of the vamp and is not a separate component. Often referred to as ‘Open Lacing’.
