Refined Core takes classic uppers and updates them with new materials and a sleeker, more sophisticated last - a striking hybridisation of formal and casual. Most obviously appropriate for the spring/summer season is the use of Denim and Fine Twill on all three offerings - for the 3-Eye Shoe and Penny Loafer, this is kept ultra-simple, with neat contrast stitching in a tobacco or yellow tones, waxed cotton laces and subtle slim soles. The 3-Eye also has two aeration holes in the side for a cool summer feel. The Brogue Shoe is more adventurous with its material combinations, particularly matching the daring Camo Waxy Fine Canvas with a new Miraggio leather, and has pleasing detail such as the self-script on a cherry red heel loop, which matches the cherry red outer sole.
