Remember that song about the blue suede shoes? Well, we’re certainly not talking about blue shoes here but, no doubt these Buttero boots deserve a tune named after them. Made from the most wondrous of suedes, the boots have fully leather lined interiors and deliver a chunky zipper at the back. Having aesthetic and comfort in mind, the guys at Buttero have also thrown a stunning crepe sole to the mix.
While on the song subject, we guess it’s safe to say that these boots were made for walking…

Translating to clothes the “unpredictableness with dignity” he is known for, designer Takuji Suzuki brings us a two button Country House Jacket as part of the ts(s) AW10 collection. In a casual approach to a formal piece of garment, this Raised Linen Irregular Herringbone blazer displays a sense of taste only to be seen at close up. All the rich intricate tones, patterns and details really pop out once we zoom in and, the extremely comfortable fit and feel make it really hard to take off once you try it on… Consider yourself warned!

Our Legacy’s inspiration for AW10 is found in the simple everyday life, finding the small forgotten things and bringing them back to contemporary life. Icon free and in search of unique garments and style, while free of seasonal trends and themes, “Génération Perdue”
is a celebration of all cultural differences between people, blurring the borders between countries, ethnicities and cultural patterns around
the world. Our Legacy is always one of our favorite collections here at the shop, for its simple yet researched approach but, above all,
because it feels so natural, personal and close.

This amazing film from 1901 features the leaving of work of the british working class. Being an important social record of
everyday life at the time, it is also a beautiful and powerful document of the people’s way of dressing in that period.
Curious how the workers clothes of that time can relate to today’s men’s trends and looks. It hasn’t changed so much, has it?!…
