Quietly elegant, our Dover oxford is sleek without being loud, polished without being overbearing. With only a subtle curved captoe detail, this is essential for times when you need to fly under the radar.
Built on our R385 soft round last.
Only the finest leathers from Tanneries du Puy, Goodyear welted construction. Handmade with care in Portugal. Read more about our leathers.

I bought the Dover Austerity during a sale to try out JA and I must say that even at their full price, these are definitely worth it. The uppers feel supple yet hold their shape well. There is absolutely no breaking in and the shoes fit like a glove from the first wear. As per their advice, I went a full size down from my usual size and fitment was perfect. The leathers they're using also seem to come from reputable tanneries so there's no doubt they'll age well. Customer service was fantastic and the shoes were delivered the next day. Overall, a very pleasant experience and I've already ordered my 2nd pair. I will recommend JA to anyone who wants a expertly crafted shoe with good leathers and construction.
Managed to get the shoes on a special promotion. Unlike most shoes at this price point, this pair is not as difficult to break in. Delivery was quick too. Looks like a good deal!
