Fred, our classic mens brogue boot gets a makeover for the Autumn/Winter 2016 season in our new chestnut pull up leather. This is a great looking, slightly oily leather that "pulls up" to reveal lighter tones giving a lovely natural look. The rich chestnut brown colour is easy to wear and will get better with age. Here he is on our signature white wedge sole.
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.
