Are your shoes made of real leather?
Really? Are you really wondering if they are made of real leather? Of course they are! 100% genuine full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather.
How should I take care of my new shoes?
Taking care of your shoes is a no brainer, it makes them last longer and
makes you look sharper.
For smooth leather, brush well once a week to remove any dust and dirt. You can wet the brush to clean the welt if needed. As leather is a natural material it can get dry, just as your skin. To prevent this use a cream-based conditioner once in a while, apply a small amount with a damp cloth and rub in circles. This is virtuous enough; you should be admired if you make of this a ritual. Anyways, if you want to go further you can also use a neutral polish and finish with a polish brush if some shine is desired.
For suede or nubuck leather, the best thing you can do is to spray them generously with a protective spray before the first wear. This will repel water and prevent dirt stains over time, repeat this spray thing at least twice a month. For heavy stains rub with a suede/nubuck cleaning gum and then raise the nap with a brush. If you feel like more experimental, you can also raise the nap holding your shoes over a steaming pot.
Are shoe-trees really necessary?
They are not strictly necessary but can be helpful on several ways. The use of shoe-trees prevent deep creases and absorb humidity, this eliminates odors and make the original shape of the shoes last longer. Plus some women have reported it’s a turn on when they see such an act of manliness.

What makes old-school retail so expensive?
Old-school retail is full of intermediations and each of them adds extra costs to the product. Don’t get us wrong, we know they all have to pay their bills and the process of marketing and distributing a product is expensive. We just consider that there are shorter and more efficient paths to get a product from factory to you. We believe in looking like a gent while saving some serious bucks.
Do you have any brick and mortar stores?
At the time we are focused on consolidating our online operation, doing so allow us to keep our expenses on the right place and give you an excellent service. Nonetheless, we don’t discard opening our own physical stores in the future.
Should I wear brown shoes with brown belt and black shoes with black belt?
Well traditionally it’s been that way, but… aren’t we about breaking traditions? Try something different and wear them with a colorful needlepoint belt. If you still decide to go with a matching belt that’s fine, just don’t forget to wear some incredibly cool socks!
What if I don’t want to wear socks at all?
You are undoubtedly Italian or have a hell of a good style! And we would probably want to have a drink with you.
Will you ever release anything apart from shoes?
Right now our focus is on shoes. However our mission remains the same, we want you to be the best-dressed man in the room. We are open to ideas, if you have any just let us know, is it neckties, socks, shirts, butcher gloves, knife cases? Whatever you feel like, we are all ears.
