Grenson for Rag & Bone Hob Nail Boots

Grenson worked with Rag & Bone on these boots. Apart from a handsome shape, the thing that stands out about these are the hob nails. Seeing as hob nails aren’t a regular request at Grenson’s Northampton factory they had to source them themselves, putting them on by hand.

Made in Italy | The Iconic Gucci Loafer

On the bizarre off-chance that you haven’t checked ACL lately, he’s just gone to Italy to see how Gucci makes their loafers. As we have a weird fondness/hatred for Gucci loafers – thank you hip-hop lyrics for poisoning our minds – it’s interesting to see how the loafer was made.

Spring & Summer Canvas Bags.

Un’altra piccola lista. Un altro elenco parziale e arbitrario, ma questa volta dedicato esclusivamente alle borse in canvas. Parziale perchè, come al solito dopo aver passato in rassegna un elenco nutrito di modelli, non sempre si riescono a trovare immagini dignitose per risoluzione o qualità.

Fallow Purple Leather Woven Belt

Here’s another woven belt to add to a growing collection. We say growing because if you’ve been following menswear it’s been hard to find a belt that isn’t woven. Chances are you’ve probably been dull in your belting choices, so a bit of pink would be a nice addition to the belt drawer. If you have a belt drawer that is, we didn’t realise how excessive a belt drawer would be until we typed it. (Paper Scissor Stone)
