This week, Spring has sprung so we’re giving you some warm weather pieces of flair with collaborations from Viberg and Gitman Vintage, along with shorty socks from Chup and Anonymous Ism for basics to continue styling well into the summer season. In a perfect ensemble of collectables, Gitman Vintage gives us some ‘party up top’ prints that pair with our seasonal Viberg Slipper collaboration for an elegant foundation, finished with locked-in fits for low cuts by the best no-show socks from Chup and Anonymous Ism. Grab your gear for styling on sunny days and socially distanced get togethers to show to the world it’s time to have some fun, that looking good means feeling good, and that spring and summer ensembles can be coordinated, made with quality, and communicate your character as much as other seasons.
Our annual signature Viberg Slipper collaboration has arrived, with a true to the original, historically informed travel shoe designed for future destinations with a proclivity for patina in a collectable ivy-style piece made for the discerning gentleman. Coming in Maryam Tannery’s limited batch Toscanello Tennessee Calf, the beautiful bourbon color is achieved through a light, single plated dye and glaze to provide a subtle depth that will develop deeply to an antique burl patina, thus cataloging your expeditions. To provide that casual luxury aesthetic in a masterfully made wholecut upper, this versatile piece comes with a natural leather 360 flat welt and sole to create a tonally corresponding clean canvas that will evolve gracefully when venturing from poolside at the club house to a five star dinner, and then off to a remote island.
It’s time to liven up a little, so we have a flagrantly fun collaboration collection with Gitman Vintage with some playful designs that offer style pops when layered, and proper flair when revealed in full. While Gitman is known for their distinct approach of reproducing patterns from their archives in premium fabrications, a signature direction of the vintage revival has been the design and use of prints that encapsulate the season's palette and theme. To hallmark this core foundation, we selected some ranch and rodeo ready, limited bolt Pin-Up patterns that combine with some globally inspired collection prints in the All Mapped Out worldly atlas, vivid waxed Africa Floral print, the sultry European artwork of Playing With Picasso, and a vintage all-American baseball Swingers pin-up that knocks it out of the park.
We have yet another storytelling series of collectable super socks from CHUP made for spring and summer footwear pairings. With a theme of seasonal celebrations and foreign landscapes in regional motifs and patterning influences, these no-show and ankle length 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.
With a no-fail fortitude, we have a seasonal selection of no-show socks from Anonymous Ism 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 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 a built-to-last mentality and the on-the-go lifestyle that the season brings.
