Another fine product from Thom Browne’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection, this pair of wingtip brogues has all the right details. They’re proudly made in England and feature a premium scotch grain leather upper in a tremendous brown finish. The thick crepe sole and white stitching on the welt just add to the detailing. And of course, the signature Thom Browne tricolour ribbon tab is featured on the heel.
John Lobb’s Darby II wing-tip brogues feature some amazing detailing and a rich reddish brown shell that’s so perfect year ’round. The color allows for some expanded versatility so going from formal to casual or vice versa shouldn’t be a problem if you know what you’re doing. It’s fitted with preforated detailing, leather lining and leather soles for max comfort and design.
Mark McNairy drops another amazing brogue exclusively for Norse Projects, this time utilizing pebbled leather and British Millerain throughout the upper. The Ridgeway sole works well against the tan grain upper and woven leather laces.
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.
Wolverine’s 1000 Mile collection is by far one of our favorite boot lineups out, primarily because of its historical references, outstanding craftsmanship and attention to detail. The range is pretty versatile as well, including the Wesley, a wingtip chukka boot that’s sure to work well in many different settings. The perforated wing tip design is highlighted with a Horween Rowdy Leather upper and is handcrafted to perfection. It’s lined with sheepskin and fitted with a leather and rubber outsole and slapped together with Goodyear Welt construction. Built to last.
Just because Common Projects is known for their impeccable lineup of sneakers doesn’t mean they can’t delve into some other types of footwear. Their Oxford collection for Fall 2010 is pretty solid, with a few pairs that are sure to turn heads. Hypebeast turns us to three styles which include a wingtip, saddle shoe and a plaintoe for good measures.
Look for these at select retailers worldwide.
