SHOE PORN: Herring Shoes Carnaby brogues

By Gerald Lynch on August 17th, 2012

 We cant get enough of a good pair of shoes here at Brandish, so today we’re introducing an occasional new feature called SHOE PORN, where we binge and indulge on one of our favourite pairs.

Kicking things off in fine fashion is Herring Shoes’ Carnaby brogue. A full (wingtip) brogue on the 386 last, it’s made of gorgeously detailed tan calf leather, with a sturdy Goodyear welted leather sole.

“Brogues can sometimes seem a bit heavy and we wanted to produce a classic brogue with a light summery feel.  The distinctive biscuit calf leather of the Carnaby fits the bill perfectly,” say Herring.

Worried about how you’d match up these lighter shaded shoes? Try lighter navy blues or complimentary tans. Daring rockstar wannabes may even try a pair of white slacks too.

Grab the Herring Carnaby brogues for £185 by clicking here. Scroll down for an excessive number of photos of the shoes from every conceivable angle!

You can bet your life on a pair of brogues, the Brandish go-to style that no fashion conscious gent’s wardrobe should be without.

One of our favourite family-run British brands Herring, who’ve been churning out beautiful brogues both traditional and modern since 1966, have just revealed their latest line: the Herring Harvard II.

A two-tone saddle brogue line-up, they’re part of Herring’s Premium collection, and land with a £255 price tag.

Four styles in all are available; a chestnut and navy suede mix, a gangster-friendly mahogany and ivory pair, a mahogany and tam suede look and the chestnut mahogany grain pair pictured above (being our personal favourites).

“The new range is made in the well-established Cheaney factory, renowned for turning out individual styles with hand crafted finishes,” reads the Herring blog.

“This is echoed throughout the Herring Harvard II from the use of a full leather lining to the Goodyear welted leather sole, adding extra comfort, moisture management and excellent shape retention.”

Check out the gallery above for a look at the Herring Harvard II brogues, as well as a selection of choice cuts from the rest of the Herring range.

Herring Shoes launch luggage collection

By Laura on December 31st, 2011

Classic British shoe maker, Herring recently extended their brand by branching into Luggage. The new luggage range includes everything from wash bags to large weekend holdalls, all finished in a super soft dark brown waxed leather.

In keeping with their heritage, Herring has named each bag after a London landmark. Our favourite is the Dorchester, a weekend-sized holdall with two external zip pockets, sturdy webbing strap handles and a large internal zip pocket. The base is stiffened with brass stud detailing to help preserve the leather. A close second is the Ritz wash bag.

Prices of the Herring Shoes Luggage collection range from £45 to £175.

Making of the Herring Shoes Oak Bark belt

By Laura on December 23rd, 2011

There is always something wonderful about listening to master craftsmen discussing their trade. The passion towards their craft is often contagious and gives us a new appreciation for familiar objects.

One video that recently caught my attention was the making of the Herring Shoes Oak Bark belts in the Tanner Bates factory. The video walks us through how this beautiful belt is made. John Hagger’s attention to detail and sourcing local materials is inspiring. Using the same leather often used by harness and bridle makers, the belt features a solid brass hand made buckle hammer riveted and is hand-stitched with Irish linen thread.

Enjoy!

The lux Monarch slipper by Herring Shoes

By Laura on September 19th, 2011

The slipper seems to be making a bit of a comeback this season, and one of our favourites has to be the Monarch shoe by Herring. We can’t help but imagine Hugh Hefner rocking these around his mansion; smoking jacket on, pipe in hand and bunnies on call. These shoes, as the name suggests is fit for royalty, from its velvet upper to the hand embroidered ‘Herring Crest.’

This beautiful house shoe has been hand made in the UK, and requires a certain style to really pull off…. In other words you can’t just throw these on with any old bathrobe. The quilted lining of the shoe ensures comfort and warmth, while the strong leather sole and heel ensures the slipper is hard wearing. We know they are meant to be worn inside… but we would almost be tempted to rock them outside too.

The Monarch shoe is available for £135 in 5 colourways including Navy, Purple, Green, Wine Red and Black velvet.
