Get to know the right shoe for every occasion and discover how not to fail with our style guide.
Richmond Derby style.
Our RICHMOND Derby style shoe is one of the most formal types of shoe you can wear for an event or special occasion. In a Derby the quarters are sewn on top of the vamps, giving the impression that they are two different pieces. They're also ideal for wearing with a jacket made of tweed or similar fabric and with a more relaxed and informal style of casual clothing.
This makes the Derby style ideal for all those informal moments, but without neglecting the flair and know-how of a man who dresses elegantly.
Richmond Oxford style.
The Oxford style of our Richmond design differs from the Derby in that the quarters for the laces are sewn internally, forming one single piece. If you've chosen to wear morning dress, your shoes should definitely be a plain lace-up Oxford style, a very elegant, classic type of English shoe. They're perfect for wearing with a full suit and the most popular colours are brown and black.
