Coming Soon..... Weaver Moccasin by Verginia Footwear

Aug 12th 2010

Due to arrive next week is a beautiful new addition to the Triads family. Verginia Footwear and their Weaver Moccasin off-shoot are certainly some of the very best footwear styles you will see this Autumn/Winter.

Verginia is a brand from renowned Japanese designer Hiroshi Takahashi. Hiro set up his High Bridge International company in 1987 as a means of importing the finest footwear he could find into the Japanese market. The Verginia brand was born in 2002, the name derived from "Virginia", a state in the south-east of America, and the word "Virgin" which conveys an innocent or pure image.

The products, which are all produced in Portugal, are created by master craftsmen with a knowledge built up over 30 years of extensive research into genuine products produced originally by the Anglo-Saxons, taking cues and ideas from the original designs.

For the Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, Verginia have taken inspiration from Nordic and North American design concepts in hiking and worker style footwear, using premium leather and suede uppers with full hand-sewn moccasin construction, sitting beautifully on Plantation Wedge Crepe outsoles. Stand-out pieces for us include the Waterbird with a stitched split-toe design and produced using waterproof suede, and the Croute K2 low shoe, similar in style to the classic Clarks Desert Khan II, though obviously produced to a higher standard.

As stated they should be arriving instore at some point next week, and added to the website pretty soon after, and with the collection very rarely available outside of Japan, the anticipation is extremely high.

Coming Soon..... Gitman Bros. Vintage

Aug 05th 2010

With most bases covered in Triads 1, we felt we were perhaps missing a traditional and beautifully crafted shirt brand. Ok, we have some lovely offerings/forthcomings from the likes of Fred Perry Laurel, Norse Projects etc. but when Gitman approached us with regards to housing the collection we jumped at the chance.

Gitman Vintage is an American heritage sport-shirt and neckwear line that pays tribute to its past, but with a distinct difference. While continuing to honor the importance of a finely crafted button-down oxford and the indispensable pinpoint, the design team at Gitman dusted off old line books to curate an authentic interpretation of the past by selectively appropriating their favorite fabrics and having them remade. The line also recreates le mode retro details, including original double-track stitching, chalk buttons, locker-loops, box-pleats and is reissued with the original "Gitman Bros. Est 1978" label.

We have a few beautiful hand-picked styles and colours arriving shortly, which we feel definitely compliments our current Autumn/Winter offer, so please keep a check on New Arrivals for further information.
