Back To Basics

A good camping trip is all about getting back to basics – the smell of a wood fire, a night under the stars, communing with Nature. Crafting exquisite leather goods and the best pair of shoes you’ll ever own likewise begins with the basics. 

At Dominique Saint Paul, the process starts with raw crust leather, uncolored and unfinished. Artisans then hand-dip or hand-apply layers of Italian dye to create identical or contrasting colors before using Italian creams and waxes for a bright, lustrous finish. The patina process is also used for the soles, heels and edges of shoes as well as other leather goods including bags, belts, wallets, and cases for business cards, laptops and iPhones.

While the Saigon flagship store has ready-to-wear, finely hand-crafted, Goodyear welted men’s dress shoes and casual shoes, the hallowed fitting room in the back is for the discerning gentleman confident enough to express his own individuality and style. Here, footwear is made to order from a range of Oxfords and Derby dress shoes to more casual slipper loafers, driving shoes and moccasin loafers, all in your very own signature color with the ability to add subtle details inspired by Vietnam, including pearl tassels that recall Hoi An lanterns. At Dominique Saint Paul, it’s all about daring to be yourself – on purpose.
