Archie is Stanley's wayward brother. He is a mens full English brogue but is a Gibson instead of an Oxford and all of his features are chunky and exaggerated, so for the Spring/Summer 2017 season we have made him in a suitably chunky leather. Here he is in natural pull up leather. This heavy but soft waxy leather will develop character as it ages. Here Archie is on a dark brown Dainite sole with a natural split welt.
This calf leather is called “pull up” as it is tanned with lots of natural oils and waxes which darkens it. When you stretch or pull the leather, it lightens as the wax disburses which also means it marks quite easily. This is very much part of the look of this leather as it is a very natural product and we believe makes your shoes age both beautifully and naturally.
