The timeless classic, the Oxford, is a more popular formal shoe, always looking great with a suit. You really can’t go wrong with an Oxford. Handmade in calf leather or suede, this classic shoe works beautifully with a suit but also casually, depending on colour and finish. Available in Siena Brown, English Tan and Black Leather or Oakum Brown and Snuff Suede.
The Loafer is versatility at its finest. It’s the perfect slip-on shoe to have as a staple in your wardrobe, working with a range of dress codes – taking your looks from casual to smart in no time. Billy Ruffian Loafers are hand-stitched and hand-crafted, easing their way into any occasion. With a variety of colours available at Billy Ruffian in suede or leather, you can be as daring or traditional as you like. Colours include Port, Rosso Red, Oakum Brown, Midnight Blue, Royal Purple and Snuff Suede or Chocolate, Powder Black and Siena Brown Leather.
The Brogue is now one of the most versatile shoes in men’s wardrobes – working perfectly for both the office and beer garden. A pair of Billy Ruffian handmade Brogues will take you a long way. With their iconic punched hole pattern and fine detailing, they work with a considered or a more relaxed look. Available in Russet Antiqued, Black, Sundance and Mahogany Leather or Navy, Snuff and Oakum Brown Suede.
Chukka Boots are perfect for the men who just can’t tear themselves away from boots even in the heat of summer.

Billy Ruffian also offers a range of accessories, including wallets and cardholders, socks and weekend bags.
The Wilde Card Case is made from Tobacco burnished calf leather – which will develop a beautiful patina over time. Lined with silk and with three card pockets, the folded card case is a refined yet practical essential. To make it extra personal to you, or for a loved one, why not emboss it with initials? You can personalise it with up to four-block initials in either gold foil or blind embossing – when a deep impression in the leather is made using heat, to darken the initials. Wilde Card Case, RRP: £15, additional £15 for embossing.
Choose from Billy Ruffian’s wide range of colourful, patterned socks to create a selection box of socks to give any outfit a pop of colour. Woven in an English factory operating since the 19th century, Billy Ruffian socks are 80% combed cotton and 20% Nylon yarn – making them soft and comfortable on your feet, and durable too! Socks in a Box, RRP: £27.50.
Billy Ruffian weekend bags are the perfect luggage piece for a stylish weekend away. Built-to-last yet also light, the bags are made from cotton canvas and dark brown aniline leather trim and handles.
