Todd Snyder is definitely one of the front runners for menswear rookie of the year for 2011. After leaving J. Crew to start his own eponymous label, his Fall 2011 debut collection and sufficed to say it was stellar. (more…)
Tricker’s is really keeping up with the demand as they’ve dropped another collaboration, this time teaming up with Sweden’s SCOUT for this small collection. The first of the two offerings is the Beechnut Burnished Derby Brogue, one that reinvisions a collaboration between Kenneth Mackenzie of 6876 and Tricker’s from roughly ten years ago. It features a calf leather shell atop a red Dainite sole, as well as brass eyelets and Tellason laces. The Midnight Blue Suede Derby Brogue looks great as well, especially with its navy Repello suede upeer and Dainite sole. Shop the goods at SCOUT.
End Hunting Co., the in-house label for the UK’s End Clothing, has teamed up with Tricker’s for a pair of two tone long wing brogues. It’s a subtle reworking of the Golosh country brogue exclusively constructed from contrasting full grain and smooth, waxed calf-leather panels. Of course we added some bespoke features such as the alternate brass top eyelet and tonal Dainite sole for added durability during these colder months, also not forgetting the unique woven cotton heel pull.
These brogues are available both in store and online in two colourways.
Each season, Superdenim puts together a collaborative collection that looks to capture a bit of the store’s personality. For Fall 2011, they’ve released four footwear styles that are limited to just 11 pieces each and are exclusive to the shop. Among them are the Multitone Derby brogue in black as well as brown and the Multitone Stow Brogue Boot in black as well as brown. They’re available now through Superdenim’s online shop.
English shoemaker Tricker’s has made an exclusive pair of brogue boots for BKc of New York. They’re handmade in England and come in two Limited Edition finishes. The uppers come in brown or black, both a fresh mix of grain leather and smooth calf leather. The storm welt and Dainite rubber sole complete the dress boot to stand up in any weather condition. They’re up for pre-order now through The Brooklyn Circus.
We’ve come across a few exclusives by Tricker’s for select retailers and this brogue boot for Fall 2011 looks tremendous. The espresso burnished brogue boots feature a Vibram wedge sole and Telason laces and are fitted with brass eyelets and a contrasting red pull loop at the back. There’s really not much else you could want from a winter boot that’s handmade in England by a company that’s been doing it right for ages.
These Trickers brogues are made exclusively for Present and come in a ‘Midnight’ upper made from repello suede. The brogue detailing, Goodyear welt and dainite sole and white eyelets and laces make this such a great pick up for the summertime but are so versatile that we’d wear these in the winter as well.
Made exclusively for Belfast’s The Bureau, this Cavalier Stow Brogue from Tricker’s recently caught our attention. The full calf leather uppers come in a deep “lolipop red” finish and are contrasted with orange pulls. The double leather sole adds comfort while it’s natural finish works well against the upper shell.
Tricker’s is known for taking traditional styles and taking them to the next level and they did just that with the Bourton brogue. Suede brogue uppers combined with the sole of a combat boot make these shoes anything but traditional. These definitely aren’t for everybody and that’s part of what makes them so intriguing. They most certainly are not delicate so don’t be afraid to beat them up a little bit. Pair them with slim trousers with a 2 inch cuff, a sport shirt, and unstructured blazer for a fit that is anything but ordinary.
Specially made to order for Belfast’s The Bureau, the 2-Tone Tan Scotch Grain Derby Brogue from Tricker’s is a magnificent shoe as it has the proper detailing and craftsmanship we’ve come to expect from one of England’s finest shoemakers. The tan scotch calf leather upper features an orange suede tongue and 4 metal eyelets, while the double leather sole with commando outsole and a barbour welt give it a more rugged look.
