Parliament Antique Blue

As low as £399.00

Handmade in Northamptonshire on our ‘River’ last, Parliament is an elegant whole-cut Oxford shoe, crafted from a singular piece of calf skin leather, individually hand-selected, cut, and sewn together with one, discreet seam.

Delivering a well-proportioned fit, this Oxford features a gentle, elongated chiselled toe and a fiddle-back waist for a more refined and elegant shape with increased arch-support. Heels are built using veg-tanned leather and incorporate a quarter rubber tip and premium leather linings provide maximum absorption and optimum foot comfort. The finished shoes are hand-burnished and finger-polished for a deep, rich shine, while fully-stitched Goodyear welted leather soles are intricately hand-decorated and reveal a painted two-tone stain.

Parliament is available in Onyx Black, Antique Blue and Antique Brown calf leathers.

Last Shape
First introduced in 2018, the River last is demonstrative of English shoemaking as its finest. A delight to the eye and a joy for the foot, Tower delivers a well-proportioned fit and features a gentle, elongated chisel toe and a highly-sculpted fiddle-back waist for a more refined and elegant shape, with increased arch support. Aesthetic excellence, comfort, and durability combined.


The Art of Shoemaking
From the design bench to the finishing room, each pair of shoes in our 1880 Export Grade collection is carefully and expertly crafted by a select, group of our very best shoemakers. With an uncompromising attention-to-detail and an unmatched level of precision, our dedicated makers, infuse individual flair, personality and magic in to each and every process to bring each pair to life.


The leather
Made from the finest Italian calf skin, the leather used for this shoe is both individually hand-selected and meticulously appraised in our Northamptonshire leather room. Chosen for its softness and tight grain structure, the leather also reacts exceptionally well to our hand-burnishing and finger-polishing techniques, to achieve an unparalleled shine and a luxuriously rich patina.
