The Oxford model - in Italian “Francesina” - has English origins and with its typical closed lacing is undoubtedly the most elegant men's shoe. The strings, strung in the 5 pairs of eyelets, close the mouth of the shoes in a perfect way, so as to show only the upper end of the tongue. The external decorations distinguish the francesine in smooth, semi-brogue and full brogue or dovetail: the more shoes are decorated, the more informal they are. Giorgio recommends wearing the smooth black lace-up with a dark dress for very formal occasions, such as the ceremony. Wear the decorated versions, in suede, or in other colors leather to express a stylish and contemporary style.
