The George Cox Monkey Boot - click here to view
This week, we're pleased to introduce the George Cox Monkey Boot as part of our ongoing Friends of Fred project. Handmade at the company's Northamptonshire factory, these 14-hole lace ups have been crafted in high shine leather that develops its own individual character over time, improving with age.
Originally designed as a standard issue army boot, the Monkey Boot has been adopted by various subcultures throughout the decades, originally picked up by the late 60s mods before becoming a firm favourite with both men and women on the skinhead scene.
The boot's unique shape hugs the ankle and tapers to the toe, making it ideal teamed with straight leg denim and a classic gingham shirt or Harrington jacket. The George Cox style features a leather lining, dual branding on the inner sock and an additional pair of yellow laces to add a pop of colour if preferred. Available in maroon or black colour options, in UK sizes 6-11.

This season, our men’s Laurel Wreath Collection is complemented by a new selection of footwear. A key style is the Ray shoe - infusing classic British styling with contemporary design, timeless leather Oxford brogue uppers are offset by thick gum coloured soles, complete with over-sized hand stitch detailing.

A delicate embossed pattern brings depth and texture to the traditional style, whilst thin waxed cranberry laces add a hint of colour. Finishing touches include a soft leather lining, our signature Stewart tartan insole and a Laurel Wreath embossed leather tab to the heel. Team with slim trousers, a graphic-detail knit and this season's made in England raincoat.

Laurel Wreath menswear has a strong graphic influence for Autumn Winter 2012. Applications and details take inspiration from British post war op artists; with a focus on the use of pattern, line and colour across styles.
Seams are shifted and back panels colour blocked, creating a strong modernist aesthetic. Irregular vertical stripes and graduated dot placement prints are used across shirts and Italian merino wool knitwear. Micro gingham checks, Italian manufactured tonal checks and stripes are seen across woven shirting. Details are considered and playful with the use of different chest pocket shapes and collar fastenings. Pants and single colour shirting are offered in soft touch cottons and subtle herringbone twills.
Across outerwear, classic shapes are given subtle updates, creating clean minimal lines. Most notable pieces are the Raglan Sleeve Raincoat, made in London using British Millerain fabric and a cotton and alpaca blend Herringbone 3 Button Jacket, also made in England.
Functional canvas lined waxed nylons are seen across the bag range; whilst micro dot and arrow patterns used within the apparel range are applied to merino and lamb’s wool scarves.
The clean lines and modern aesthetic seen within the clothing range is apparent across the footwear collection. Standout styles include the Beatty suede, a desert style boot with a thick crepe sole and the Donegan Leather & Wool Shoe, a brogue style panelled with rich marl wool and smooth leather.
