Rule No. 1 Be different – be yourself.
This is the essence of DIS philosophy, the first rule to abide by - the expression of ourselves, without fear and without worry, without tagging along and following the crowd, because our individual diversity is the richness that makes us all really unique.
It is important to feel unique even when choosing our clothes and accessories, because they can make all the difference between standing out or being unnoticed.
This closed-end bottom sole, made in thin leather without welt and trimmed tightly to the edge has been especially made to enhance the last. The laser inscription at the bottom is just the cherry on top.
FRED – Oxford spectator
is dedicated to Fred Buscaglione (1921 – 1960) - Turin
An Italian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he was still a teenager when he began performing at nightclubs as a jazz singer. He then began a vagabond life of performances in nightclubs in various European cities, not always in the most salubrious venues. At the end of the 1950s, after years of paying his dues, Fred became one of Italy's most popular entertainers.
Moustache, broad brimmed hat, double-breasted pinstripe suit and two-tone Oxfords were his style – "Easy Whisky Fred" style. At just 38 years old, Buscaglione suddenly died in a car accident in Rome while on his way home after performing in a nightclub.
His Oxford spectator full brogue shoes are the right highlight for dresses and suits, following the rythm of Turin's clubs, among gigs and yellow lights, old style elegance.
