Plaintoe balmoral design, the only black shoe you'll ever need. Even more formal than a captoe, the plaintoe balmoral is the only shoe that can be worn with both a tuxedo and a conventional suit. Appropriate for black tie, job interviews, funerals, and everyday city wear.
This design is surprisingly rare. One of the only other makers of plaintoe balmorals is Alden, though, as depicted in Photo 6, our last is more elegant.
Classic, yet sleek, round toe last. Traditional English design and styling. Full-grain Italian calfskin. Goodyear-welted construction. Channeled soles. Beveled waist. We guarantee the quality rivals shoes twice its price.
Made at our benchgrade shoemaker, these shoes use different lasts than our handgrade line.
