Church's Oxfords, Part 1

Lovely brown oxfords made by British cobbler Church's. Had on eBay for perhaps an eighth of retail. Minor scuffs. Absolutely perfect for this green suit.

By "oxford" we refer to the shoes' construction on top. The top flaps or "quarters" fold under the vamp rather than resting atop it, as on the less formal derby style.
