The Recoleta is a full brogue Oxford with rich punching details on the front and sides, including a wing-tip pattern on the vamp and a medallion on the toe. The unique detailing of the Recoleta sets it apart from other brogue models.
The Oxford is the most recognisable English classic with its timeless design. It is the most popular dress shoe of the modern gentleman, a must have in any men’s wardrobe. The design of the Oxford is equipped with closed lacing, for a discreet and formal look.
Originally, the punctured holes of the brogue were there to let water drain out, but today they are just ornaments on an English classic.
Straight out of the box, the ﬁrst thing to do with your suede shoe is to apply a “suede protector” spray. The preemptive spray will partially water proof your shoes and keep a lot of the dirt and stains from sticking to them.
To maintain your suede shoe it is best to regularly brush them with a suede brush. Brush them while dry, do not press to hard and always in the same direction to keep the nap uniform. For more persistent stains that wont come off with the brush, use a suede eraser. Apply a light pressure.
To revive your suede shoe, use the steam from a kettle then brush the hairs with a rubber suede brush.
HOW TO STYLE
The Oxford is part of the collection of footwear style that every discerning gentleman should have in his wardrobe. The Recoleta is a versatile design and can be paired with just about any style, from suit trousers, to jeans or chinos, making this Oxford a invaluable addition to your wardrobe.
CONSTRUCTION & LEATHER
The Recoleta is a contemporary brogue, available in four different models: Suede Brown, Bordeaux Antique Calf, Dark Brown Calf and Velvet Brown Calf. We select our suede in Italy, handpicking solely un-split skins to ensure the durability of the leather. The calf on the other hand is a selection of the finest leather from the Tannerie d’Annonay, in France. All of our leathers have a have a natural finish, showcasing the rich hues of the material that varies with each shoe, no two are the same.
The Recoleta is Goodyear welted and 100% resolable, just like all of our Fagliano design, and finished with a bark tanned leather sole. Our leather soles are a masterpiece of craftsmanship to themselves, hand stained and endowed with a “gentleman’s corner”, to prevent your heel from getting caught in your trousers cuffs. The formal shoe has five blind eyelets with waxed cotton laces.
