‘Barbee’ is a Tassel Loafer for the contemporary gentleman that seeks to add a laid-back elegance to his look. With its suede leather and leather sole, it’s a dark brown shoe that’s designed for the special collection in collaboration with Fabio Attanasio. It’s made for the dandy man of today that conveys a sense of versatility and elegance when he steps out his front door. The blake-rapid construction makes it very easy to resole.
The most valuable construction is called blake-rapid. It’s characterized by a double binding (blake and rapid, precisely): while the first attaches upper, lining and insole; the second one secures the insole and outside sole together. The shoes are therefore easy to resole.
Unrefined leather goes through the traditional process called “tanning”. And is treated so to prevent it from decomposition or loss in flexibility. Afterwards, the leather is put in a rotating wood barrel with water and dark brown coloring solution for dyeing. Water is then warmed up to 60° C to help the color bind to the leather for a lasting finish.
Made with real leather, our soles respect and pay homage to tradition. They’re made from the best bovine leather in the market and gain their distinct color through “vegetal tanning”. And, they’re made to last over time.
To make suede leather you use the underside of the calf leather. There are two types: “overturned”, obtained by turning the full grain leather the other way around; and “split leather”, where it’s the very last layer to be chosen. Our suede leathers are all waterproof.
