One of the defining components of our brand is to partner solely with other brands and makers that manufacture at the highest level, including those focused on creating new iterations and improving their products based in traditional craftsmanship. This balance between original and new is delicate and few heritage brands are able to evolve beyond mere reproduction. Iron Heart and Tricker’s represent two of our closest relationships that honor the craft by pushing boundaries with materials, design, and production. This week, we have a new and comprehensive collaboration pack with Tricker’s and an assembly of armaments from Iron Heart which speak to the truth that some goods (yes, ours) are made better than they used to be. Produced for the craft collector looking to conquer the duties of the day with style and poise, here are some of the finest examples of durable pieces that innovate beyond the originals, designed to continue the journey with the wearer.
As the first to source Horween leather for a Tricker’s years ago, we unearthed an exceptional combination of rugged, premium, American-tanned hides harnessed with the refined, definitive English country boot. The result is a superior composition built for rough conditions. Over time and with fresh perspectives, we’ve continued to lean into this Tricker’s-meets-Horween formula to highlight the distinctiveness of this legacy heritage welted footwear producer. For another celebrated Horween Heritage Pack series, we present some ultra-rare tannages sourced in limited lots to advance the classics while introducing some new pattern developments for a début pack of configurations. From the rich, medium brown vegetable tanned Oak Horsehide and Mocha Vienna Bison leathers to an opulent espresso brown Java Waxed Flesh, the single dye lot Timber Wolf Dublin, and the classic Black CXL, we have some rare and perfected make-ups coming with signature Division Road specifications of Natural Leather Barbour Welts and Midsoles, lug soles, and our trademark pull loops and lace combinations to provide elegant and collectable boots made to withstand the worst environments.
Made for the vintage-inspired modern man channeling ranch or battlefield vibes, this collection of Iron Heart includes innovative fabric developments and new styles that embody the brand’s legendary better-than-original, over-the-top production formula. With an enduring style sense, each piece fits in with the Division Road idea that workwear durability and iconic inspiration can be refined into a functional and personalized wardrobe with a timeless aesthetic. From new fabric developments of a heavily brushed Raised Whipcord and a 13 oz. Ultra Heavy Flannel with a classic greyscale check overlaid on a herringbone weave on the Western shirt, to a new Oiled Whipcord for their legendary N-1 Deck Jacket, Iron Heart constantly impresses with evolutions of time-tested classics. Completing this curation is a new M-51 Field Coat that can be worn as a light, water-resistant shell or converted with a quilted liner for colder seasons, and a new relaxed Cargo that takes some perfected details from our 502DR Serviceman and pushes back the clock to the 90’s or 40’s, depending on your style references.
