If there’s one cardinal menswear sin you should never commit, it’s pairing your dapper evening suit with a pair of beaten-up boots or, worse, trainers. The secret to looking suave and polished lies in the perfect pair of Oxfords – and few make them better than British shoemaker Crockett & Jones. For Christmas 2023, the heritage brand presents a dashing new iteration of its most famous Oxfords just in time for party season.

Crockett & Jones Alex Oxford shoes

Crockett & Jones Alex Oxfords

For the uninitiated, the Alex Oxfords are a classic whole-cut shoe with a seamless upper and a classic closed lacing system. This seemingly simple shoe employs great skill and craftsmanship as the upper is created from one piece of fine leather, which must be carefully pulled over the last with precision and care. Imbuing further history into the design, Alex’s chiselled toe is derived from the brand’s best-selling 348 Last.

With an impressively elegant silhouette, Crockett & Jones’ latest iteration of the Alex is created in a polished patent leather that elevates it to the perfect evening shoe. The sheen of specially coated patent leather makes it the ideal option for occasionwear but also demands the highest-quality manufacturing process. Enter, Crockett & Jones’ decades of expertise that manipulates the unforgiving material into an opulent and regal Oxford.

So how to style them? Take your cues from 007 – Bond wore shoes modelled on Crockett & Jones’ last 348 in both Skyfall and Spectre – and pair with your best tuxedo to turn heads in every room this festive season.
