Barbour x Joseph Cheaney & Sons
British menswear institutions Barbour and Joseph Cheaney & Sons have announced a special collaborative collection of handmade men’s shoes. Paying homage to the legacy of quality both brands represent, the designs are timeless, full of heritage and constructed to the highest standard.
Barbour and Joseph Cheaney & Sons share a history that spans over 100 years, and both are family-owned businesses that still produce their products on English soil – Barbour making it’s iconic waxed jackets in its South Shield’s factory whilst Cheaney’s shoes are still cut, closed and lasted in Desborough, Northamptonshire. The latter being the location where this new collaboration will be crafted.
Paul Arnett, Footwear Product Manager for Barbour, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Joseph Cheaney and Sons on this capsule footwear collection. Both Barbour and Cheaney are not only two great British brands, but are both family companies who take pride in their respective long histories of craftsmanship. Our shared passion for quality and heritage really shows in this very special capsule collection.”
There are four men’s styles on offer in the collaboration: two pairs of boots and two pairs of Derby shoes, all of which incorporate classic Barbour and Cheaney details.
The Rushton is a hand-polished, almond-grained calf-leather Ghille boot with Barbour rustic wax fabric panels. It is finished with full dark green calf lining and a genuine commando rubber sole:
The Rockingham is a hand-polished, mahogany calf leather Ghille boot with Barbour classic tartan wax fabric panels and a dark green leather lining.
Finer details include hand stitched lace end tassels and ‘shotgun pellet’ wing caps on the toe:
