Generally speaking, our dress shoes run a FULL SIZE LARGE from your regular US dress shoe size, so make sure to order one full size below what you normally would in a dress shoe.
For example, if your normally wear a US 9 dress shoe in *gasp* Allen Edmonds, you should order a size 8 in Paul Evans. And remember, your dress shoe size is generally half size to one full size smaller than your athletic shoe size.
Most Italian dress shoes run larger than traditional US/UK sizing. Not to mention each pair of feet is unique! Do you wear the same shoe size in all your shoes? Of course not, so please excuse the quick and easy sizing adjustment necessary to wear our shoes. After all, it's just a number!
We do not currently make wide shoes, however we do have many satisfied wide-feet customers. If you have wide feet, there's a very high probability you can fit into our shoes!
Simply adjust a half to full size up from our recommended shoe sizing adjustments to accommodate for extra width. For those who wear E-width shoes, a half size up should do it. For EE and above, try a full size.
For example, if our sizing instructions recommend adjusting a full size down for D-width sizes, an E-width size would simply adjust a half size down. See? That was easy!
And don't forget your local cobbler can stretch out your shoes for you. If you need help, please reach out to us here.

If an item is sold out, we may choose to make it available for a pre-order, designated by the PRE-ORDER button on the product page. After completing the purchase process online, we'll confirm via email that you are aware the item is out of stock and that you placed a pre-order.
A pre-order requires upfront payment in order to be placed on our pre-order list. As soon as your order arrives at our distribution center, we will quickly ship your order prior to making our the products available to the general public. We highly recommend pre-orders as it is the best way to obtain our shoes.
Generally pre-orders are fulfilled in 3 - 5 months, depending on which shoe style you order and if we will have future availability. Due to demand, we cannot guarantee fulfillment of pre-orders from the most immediate shoe shipment we will be receiving.
We highly recommend placing a pre-order if an item is sold out. This is the best way to get our shoes. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to build out our inventory!

Our shoes are made in Naples, Italy in a factory that has been owned by a single family for generations. They are skilled artisans, well trained in the art of fine Italian footwear. A dedicated team with centuries of collective experience delicately handcraft our shoes using the finest Italian calfskin leathers.
Our collection is made using the traditional Italian technique of Blake stitching. This type of construction dominates Italian-made shoes because the end product is a light, flexible and sleek-profile shoe. Both Goodyear Welt and Blake construction techniques are signs of quality and will ensure a lifetime of wear provided the shoes are maintained and resoled as needed.
Our shoes are made using the finest Italian calfskin and suede leather uppers. Using high-quality leather ensures your shoes will become more attractive as they age, provided the shoes are polished and properly maintained. Treat your shoes to a weekly polishing!
