Our formal cap-toe Oxford is crafted on the Jefferies last, inspired by English heritage but also influenced by Japanese craftsmanship. The Wordsworth features very tight needlework across the facing and a soft chisel toe. These TGC Oxfords come in dark oak calf, inspired by the rich hues of Japanese autumn.
Note: The threading on the cap-toe shown on the prototype image above will be moved closer to the cap edge.
- Full Grain French Calf Leather - Dark Oak
- Full leather lining
The Wordsworth is constructed using the Goodyear Welted method, considered by shoe enthusiasts as the 'Gold Standard' in shoemaking.
The upper leather, leather lining, and the (leather) welt are stitched to the ribbing, which has already been attached to the insole. The welt will then be stitched to the leather sole. This final stitch can be removed so that the sole can be replaced without damaging the rest of the shoe.
- Closed-channel leather outsole
- Leather mid-sole
- Leather insole
- Cork footbed
- No reconstituted leather use
- Jefferies last - fits true to size.

Always use shoe trees or boot trees when not in use to keep the shoes or boots in shape and to prevent them from creasing.
Apply shoe cream every 3-4 weeks to keep the leather soft and supple.
