Spring-Summer 2012 Mens Church’s

March 20, 2012

On the left you’ve got a brogue that looks like you’ve run through pools of acid just to get that weathered, worn look, on the right, a brogue so colourful it would make Ronald McDonald blush. Both pairs are from the Spring-Summer 2012 Mens Church’s collection, by the way, and one that’s set to find new fans whether you like the distressed or the wacky.

The distressed pair is also known as the Downish (SGD850), achieved by brushing off several layers of waxed colour to get its sophisticated finish. The other pair is a reinterpreted golf model (called the Farthingson, don’t laugh) that comes mounted with a rubber bottom and contrasting colours that’s just plain fun and retails for SGD730.

Other styles include this loafer (SGD800) as well as this tasseled slipper that retails for SGD710 (ok, it’s not actually a slipper, but you know what I mean), which are best suited to those more sedate amongst you. Sedate doesn’t necessarily mean boring, since these styles are also those that can be worn for time eternal.

Last but not least, my absolute favourite pair has got to be Church’s new season take on the Shanghai, produced back in 1929 for English and American colonists living in the Chinese city’s international settlement. A pair was found from that era with a worn off heel with the toe bent upwards, which is why these ones have the same finish, in keeping with the state of the now archived pair that was discovered.

And I’m loving the one in that deep dark emerald jade green (SGD1560) that’s just lush. Check them out at Church’s ION Orchard, or online at Mr Porter.
