Details about Number 346

Our No. 346 is a classic black wholecut Oxford with an astonishing design. Generally a wholecut Oxford with a closed lacing is the most elegant and versatile of all men’s dress shoes in the world. Painstakingly cut from one single piece of leather, here a curved seam at the closure reduces the formality, but accentuates the shoe’s handsome lines.

Wholecut Oxford with an exciting seam


From a shoe-making standpoint, the wholecut Oxford is one of the most difficult shoe styles to last. The shoe last must represent the foot’s anatomical information, at the same time giving the finished shoe a pleasing and fashionable appearance. Because a wholecut Oxford has no stitching to allow some give when pulling the leather over the last, the manufacture is very difficult. If not done properly, it can create an area of loose leather.

Different to the classic wholecut Oxford, our No. 346 has no straight cut. The curved seam sits on a more natural join, while the shoelaces run through the five eyelet tabs exceptionally flat and discreetly. This exciting detail turns a classic man’s dress shoe in a real eye-catcher, without excessive flamboyance.

The generous, sweeping closure allows comfortable entry for the foot, whilst the closed lacing guarantees a tight and snug fit. The soft, black calfskin radiates an astonishing shine meanwhile, making our black wholecut Oxford the ideal choice for formal occasions. Because of its fashionable seaming it might not be best for a wedding or other too traditional settings – it will though also look fantastic with a simple pair of jeans.

The shoe’s upper is painstakingly crafted from a single piece of leather, closed by seaming at the back. The black Wholecut with a characteristic closed five-hole lacing is the purest expression of the Oxford style.

Stylish/Elegant Last

Stylish/Elegant Last

Similar to the classic last, but slightly narrower at the toe—a subtle difference. This type of last is distinguished by its balanced design and elegant appearance. It is ideal for those with relatively high insteps.

French Calf

French Calf

This shoe’s upper boasts premium, medium-soft and fully-dyed calfskin. The technical term for this kind of leather is "French calf". This type of leather is known for its flexibility, fine texture, and soft grain.

Extravaganz

Contemporary

The level of extravagance of our No. 346 is extremely high. The Wholecut is the definition of understated extravagance. But its curved leather seam breaks its understatement and lends this classic men’s dress shoe a fashionable edge.

General information about our contemporary shoe collection

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Gentleman's Corner

Gentleman's Corner

These shoes come equipped with a so-called "gentleman's corner". This is a small notch cut from the inside corner of the heel. This has a practical purpose—it prevents your trouser leg from catching on your shoe.

Breathable

Breathable

This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.

Values
EU

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.
