Bexley shoes - Page 2
Styleforum Top Picks
Do you mean Oxfords in general or a particular model ?
Bexley leather seems to be mature hide, so it is durable but it needs to be broken in. Bexley offer black and usually one shade of brown so no good for many forum shoe types who will not wear black but want a choice of other colours.
The quality is OK considering the price. Although it seems some French shoe enthusiasts seem to prefer Markowski today.
Sizing is hard to get right, since they still don't tell on which last a particular model is build.
Needless to say I wont be buying any of their shoes.
They indeed look decent. I would mostly use these shoes (probably Edward II in Chestnut and Bellagio in Black) as my 'rainy-day' shoes and to go out with friends to bars/clubs, because these things (rain, lot's of people, alcohol,...) can ruin my higher-quality shoes quickly :)
Thanks for your reply, upr_crust!
I bought three pairs about a month ago--Stanfords in black and brown (I have a soft spot for wholecuts) and the Jermyn model boot in "chocolat." Initial impressions are that they fit true to size, seem well constructed (all three of mine are Goodyear welt) but that the leather uppers are more durable than soft, even after applying leather conditioner. If you get them, I would take the time to do multiple conditionings to soften the leather. Very comfortable, though, and both pairs of the Stanfords have worn well thus far.
As far as shipping et al, once I convinced my bank that the shoes were indeed a purchase I wanted to make and not a fraudulent transaction, they arrived in five days from date of shipping and had no issues in clearing customs. I will very likely buy from them again.
