Crockett & Jones Alex is a dark brown burnished calf leather Oxford whole-cut made on the iconic 348 last featuring a slim leather sole. Possibly the most distinguished shape in the Crockett & Jones arsenal, the slender silhouette is immediately recognised by shoe aficionados across the globe. The most refined of all dress shoes, Alex in dark brown burnished calf is the epitome of ‘less is more’ ideally suited for the big occasions and evening attire.
Crockett & Jones Alex is Goodyear welted, a traditional shoe manufacturing construction favoured by English shoemakers, allowing for multiple resoles. Repair not replace is the key to enjoying this style for many years, being the ultimate in sustainable footwear.
Bowhill and the Whole-cut Oxford
Whole-cuts are our lifeblood at Bowhill & Elliott, with our famous hand made velvet slippers all made in a similar fashion. Cut from one piece of material (whole-cut) only the finest uppers can be used for such footwear, as the complete shoe is laid bare, with no stitching or brogueing to distract from the quality. Whole-cut Oxfords are affectionately referenced as the shoemakers shoe, due to the artisanal nature of the clicking and lasting required to make a shoe of such quality. It is no surprise we have such an extensive range of Whole-cut shoes at Bowhill & Elliott, with the exclusive Alex in dark brown suede and Wensum in grain leathers specially made for us by our good friends at Crockett & Jones.
Bowhill & Elliott have proudly stocked Crockett & Jones footwear in our Norwich store since the 1940s, highlighting our special relationship with Northampton’s finest shoemaker and underpinning our commitment to supporting premium British manufacturing.
