As the sun gets brighter, days get longer, and the warm weather refreshes the senses, we bring you a spring-inspired release of suede styles from Crockett & Jones along with sock pairings from CHUP and Anonymous Ism to get everyone excited to grab a pair for getting out. With a storyline of the commanding officer transformed to a countryside gentleman who takes his work as seriously as his leisure, these collaborations with Crockett & Jones are refined into casual styles with a simple elegance, built through precise craftsmanship for purposeful duty. With this military man on leave disposition, the Earth Green Suede Coniston Boot and Snuff Suede Grasmere Derby Shoe utilize a premium grained calf suede of hand selected, aniline dyed hides treated for durability in tanning and finely sanded to a luxurious and durable nap, completed with the low-profiled Ridgeway lug sole that will master thoroughfares and terrains with stoic grace. We also have an arsenal of clandestine and collectable CHUP socks that are made for the cult of footwear craft with celebrated origin stories and amazing single knit patterns, paired with an assembly of supremely special staple socks with a fiber first approach from Anonymous Ism.
Coming in a military inspired pattern and palette with a silky suede finish, the Earth Green Suede Coniston Boot presents a fresh perspective on this iconic derby boot with a cap toe and high quarter, while the Calf Suede produced by one of the UK's most storied tanneries in a deeply saturated green with a brown base will take on wild weather skirmishes with style. This cleanly configured boot is subtly accented with a dark brown storm welt and leather midsole finishing, a dark brown fabric pull tab, and blind eyelets to allow the leather to evolve with deeper character in battles against the boring. Set atop the British-made Ridgeway sole that offers the best combination between off road and city street traction, the tread pattern and profile give stout proportion to a sleek style.
A pattern debut to our line-up that offers top-of-mind requisites like daily comfort, utility, and styling versatility, we present the Snuff Suede Grasmere Derby Shoe, inspired by two-piece military dress shoes with an elongated quarter and balanced vamp. Coming in one of the finest UK tanned Calf Suedes, the leather is a rich light brown that looks even better worn in and brushed up with a nap that communicates a softness with a stalwart backbone in a standout style for an endless number of ensembles. This refined, classically configured shoe is subtly accented with a tan notched storm welt and leather midsole finishing, tonal French Binding, and blind eyelets to provide a clean canvas for the leather to evolve with an authentic appeal through scuffs from the street and patina from rough paths. Set atop the British-made Ridgeway sole, this derby is designed for the sophisticate and will conquer all conditions with commanding character.
We have another series of super collectable socks from CHUP that are made for spring and summer footwear pairings with inspirations from Native American festivals, oral traditions, and wares. With a theme of seasonal celebrations and landscapes translated through traditional iconography and tribal palettes, these crew socks will grip your feet, keep your boots and shoes well-placed, and be revered when revealed. These expertly knit pieces are made in a spring palette via an old-world, limited production approach to provide long-lasting inspirations for any ensemble, rather than merely acting as accents.
With no-fail fortitude from Anonymous Ism, we have a seasonal selection of the American Rib Crew 3 Pack for an assembly of all-season accoutrements and no-show socks that will complement the cornerstone of any warm weather footwear rotation. These luxury basics for low tops are made with a fiber-to-foot approach in organic cotton, military grade Cordura and Coolmax high pile yarns for durable, breathable, and snug-to-foot staples. Known for their traditional production methods utilizing vintage knitting machines from the 1970’s, this assortment matches the built-to-last mentality and on-the-go lifestyle that the season brings.
