Shoes Of The Week – Carreducker One Off’s

† There is a leather factory in Northampton, called Crack’s (for short), which is considered the haven for acquiring leather in this country. And apparently, as you can see by the leather at hand, sometimes you can find some unique and interesting stuff.

Carreducker Interview

My Ideal Boot

Last year I wrote about The Perfect Boot and how a nice dress chukka could take you a long way, and frankly, I still agree with that but considering it is 2011, I wanted to switch it up a little and tell you about my ideal boot!! I have always been a big fan of how people around the world dressed in the late 1800’s-early 1900’s, also known as the Victorian and Edwardian era’s. If […]
