Spring is officially here and despite our casual home office environments, many of us have found it's still nice to come correct to retain a sense of normalcy in the face of anything but. Comfort, cool, and easily coordinated have been the edicts of our recent ensembles, dictated by the need to be put together in a moment's notice for the next virtual meeting. Yet, to break out of the constrained and mundane, and maybe even into the sunlight of spring, we bring you some classic, sartorial style saviors with our Bucks 'n Chups release.
An instant hit upon the initial release, our Viberg Anise Kudu Reverse Derby Shoe collaboration needed another specialty sourced C.F. Stead collectable comrade, coming in a Military Green Waxed Kudu and on the 1035 Last for our more generously footed gents. The refined classic Derby pattern, much like its wearer, has no limitations and, paired with the finest Kudu leathers, tonal specifications, Natural 360 Storm Welt, and a Vibram 4014 Christy Sole our versions will remain distinguished whether pounding the pavement or sauntering through the sticks.
Then, for a well-heeled and foot-protecting pairing to these subtle and stylistically-able Derby Shoes, we offer some story-rich Chup no-show socks. These fully knit pieces have a considered design with a perfected fit and grip along with proven craftsmanship to be the appropriate artistic accompaniments to our hand-grade footwear. So, go forth with the old adage of "look good, feel good," after you gear up with our new-Bucks and Chups with both a satirical smile and striking sunnies in your styling goods that will make the most of warmer weather days.
The spicy golden tan Anise Kudu Reverse is Charles F. Stead’s highest quality full-grain Janus tannage that uses hand selected hides to produce a finely sanded and aniline dyed flesh-side leather that has a refined finish in a butter soft nap and a luxurious luster. This Division Road exclusive original uses the dress-styled 2030 Last for a sleek and low-profile shape that's balanced with a street sensibility and industrial-purposed design.
From CHUP, we have another storytelling series of collectable socks. With a theme of midsummer celebrations and Shetland seaside landscapes in regional motifs and patterning influences, these no-show socks will grip your feet, keep your shoes well-placed, and be revered when revealed. In a spring palette, these expertly knit pieces are made via an old-world, limited production approach to provide long-lasting inspirations for an ensemble, rather than merely acting as accents.
