^ A sea of soles at the Grenson factory
And as if to cement my West Brit-status even further, there’s this collaboration between Barbour and Grenson that begs to be blogged. It really doesn’t get more English than this, with two of England’s most heritage-steeped brands (Grenson dates back to 1866; Barbour began in 1894) coming together to pool their shared interests in quality, durability and understated yet unmistakable luxury.
^ All handcrafted in the Grenson factory, this limited-edition collection of brogues and boots incorporates waxed fabrics (a nod to Barbour’s signature) and the calf-grain leathers Grenson have already made a name for themselves with.
the touch of green on the edge of the soles is quite nice!
