This week Clarks released a selection of their key FW13 pieces online and in stores. What all the pieces have in common is a sense of tradition, a Victorian influence that Clarks has translated into contemporary pieces to suit the lifestyle of the modern men – that's us!
Amongst the pieces that have dropped early I am most keen on the Darby Desert shoe – an adaptation from Nathan Clark's archive, which had been reinvented for SS13 and continues into the new season. I love the minimal brogue detailing, the contrast of texture and colour introduced by the smooth and grainy leather and the fringed tongue at the front. They're one of those pieces you can wear both with a suit as a statement as with jeans as a cool standout piece.
You can buy these styles here and here. And I also recommend you have a look at their Dorset Strap and the classic Edward Limit brogue.
