Red Wing Oxblood Oxford

—01. Part of a 3 model series.

Words

Although the new Red Wing series made its way around the Internet quite a bit recently, I thought it was still worthwhile to note the footwear. Red Wing is one of my favorite brands and I wear their boots very regularly. I don't think this is a model that I would personally pick up, but I think the shape, color and styling is very much within their aesthetic. It's been well executed and I think the oxford version looks especially nice.

Red Wing Postman Chukka

—01. Made in USA.

Words

When Red Wing first reissued their Postman oxford shoe, I wasn't particularly a fan of the new, old model. Something about the shape of it didn't feel quite right. The chukka, however, looks much nicer. I like the silhouette, and it offers a slightly rugged, yet formal looking option. I also like the appeal of its origin and how they seem to wear over time.

Editor's Essentials

—01. Red Wing Chukka.

Words

Every season, or year, there are a few pieces that I tend to wear all of the time. These three items are pretty standard for me to be wearing 5 days a week lately. The Red Wing chukkas were tough to figure out my sizing originally, but now that they are broken in, they've quickly become one of my favorite pairs of shoes. The color is great, the weight and silhouette is nice and they go with pretty much everything. Everything, meaning oxford BD shirts and 12 oz sweatshirts. I consider the Engineered Garments Workaday oxfords and Real McCoy's sweatshirts both best in class, so I have a hard time wearing anything else.

Red Wing Sage Moc Toe

—01. Sage suede upper.
—02. Made in USA.

Words

The moc toe boot from Red Wing is one of their most famous models. Last spring we saw the chukka done in this subtle sage suede, but this fall the better known work boot gets the treatment. Again, I like it and although I'll probably stick with my more traditional option, it definitely gives this classic a fresh feel.

Feature: Red Wing Factory Visit

—01. Steel die cuts.

Words

The Red Wing Shoe Company is one of the biggest brands to benefit from the current trend in menswear. Some have begun to shy away from their products because of the recent rise in popularity, but the majority remain steadfast in their support of one of America's finest brands. It's a company that makes a good product, and always will. I have become a loyal fan over the last few years, not because of their marketing, their presence at Capsule or their push for new colorways, but because their boots are well made, look great and work as well in the city as they do in the field. Last summer we were fortunate to be given access to the Red Wing tannery and shoe factory in Minnesota and these photographs, taken by Randy Douglas, provide a unique look behind the scenes.

2nd Magazine: Red Wing Issue

—01. 2nd Magazine, Red Wing Book cover.
—02. Inside spread.

Words

2nd magazine have been putting out some great issues lately and showing a little more editorial depth in their features and photography than the more popular Free & Easy. While both magazines have their place, 2nd has been particularly grabbing my attention lately. This special edition issue focuses soley on one of the best boot companies of our time: Red Wing. 'The Red Wing Book' looks at the company, its rise in popularity and some of Japan's biggest collectors. The brand is one of my personal favorites so this book will be a must have for the shelf.

Fall Look 01

01

—01. CPO shirt, 19th Century shirt and pocket square by Engineered Garments, pants by Sassafras, knit cap and t-shirt by The Real McCoy's, socks by J.Press, boots by Red Wing.

Words

Normally I don't get too excited about fall in July, but with the knowledge of the items on their way to Vancouver I can't help it. There are a couple of things I miss in the summer - my Red Wings and knit caps in particular - but there are also a couple of other items I am looking forward to picking up this fall, especially the brushed flannel CPO shirt by Engineered Garments. As you can see here, it's one of those simple pieces that works well with everything. The tones in this outfit are easy and I think this is one of those blog posts where I will catch myself looking exactly like it when the weather cools down enough.

&mdashKnit cap and t-shirt available at the Inventory Stockroom now; CPO shirt coming soon.
