English shoes, meet Italian denim.
That was the introduction that took place at the start of this little collaboration, a capsule collection between Roy Rogers Jeans and Trickers. Trickers is well known for being one of the best quality producers of hand-made shoes in Brittain, founded in 1829, while Roy Rogers holds the title of the first jeans manufacturer in Italy. Bringing these two long-standing, historical brands into partnership was not necessarily inevitable, but it was none the less a stroke of genius that we’ll get to see up close at the upcoming Pitti Uomo menwear tradeshow in Florence.
The two types of shoes – one classic, one more ‘vintage’ in style – both bring a mix of leather and denim together into harmony.
Stay tuned for more coverage when we head to Pitti in January.
