This week, we have a train hopping, hog riding, and trench tromping troop from Iron Heart, Crockett & Jones, and Chup that take mainstay heritage inspirations to the next level for those looking to make the goods their own with fits, kits, and fades. This curation of crafted collectables bridges on the extreme as well as the staple, channeling some choice stories based on military, workwear, motorcycle, and regional cultures. This collection, balanced from foundational footwear to heritage style-piece outerwear, is designed to capture your journey through patina adventures and document your own chronicle of style.
Iron Heart brings us two of the pieces we’re most excited about for the season in core style icons that honor the Wabash Railroad line worker and embody the Easy Rider lifestyle. The Black Wabash Twill Chore Jacket comes in a refined fit made for legit rough wear with a deep rope dyed sulfur warp and weft in a 12 oz. twill. Enhanced with the hallmark bleach block print dotted stripe pattern, this piece will fade to grey when worn as hard as intended and reflect the layered character of the labors and era that inspired it. The Pale Rider Western is a grail for those free-riding explorers on patina quests, made by leather specialist Simmons Bilt in a completely undyed, nude vegetable tanned Italian Horsehide leather. Both pieces are complemented with Iron Heart’s standard over the top construction and considered details like felled seams, chainstitching, and oversized, above military grade branded brass and copper snaps.
Focusing on the foundation of style with fundamental footwear we have what will be a single restock on the rare and exclusive Bronze & Slate Pack with Crockett & Jones. This series sleekly redefines the archetypal English officer with the Moray Boot, country gent with the Coniston Boot, and archaeological explorer with the Indiana Boot. Using Bronze Oiled Sides specially formulated for C&J and sourced specifically for Division Road paired with CF Stead’s Slate Calf Suede, this neutral palette provides a basis for styles that are equally unique and versatile for various ensembles. With each pattern asserting a distinctive personality from the two-tone Moray to the patina powerhouse Coniston and the tonally sophisticated Indiana, this series is unified by the 378 Last defined by an elegant almond toe and military Munson-based backbone, complemented with a Ridgeway Sole that provides lug traction in the outdoors and a low profile for the covert countryman.
In a collectable craft ensemble of footwear pairings, we have a selection of Chup crews to colorfully stroll into spring. This collection leverages inspirations from architecture, landscapes, and textiles that span the globe from Latvia to New Mexico to Scotland. In versatile palettes and unique knit patterns, these socks will grip your feet, keep your boots and shoes well-placed, and be revered when revealed. These expertly knit pieces are made via an old-world, limited production approach to provide long-lasting inspirations for any ensemble.
