About Barker Black

The English shoe company Barker was founded in the village of Earls Barton by Arthur Barker in 1880. The brand hit paydirt by specializing in the “Good Year Welted” construction of shoes, which soon became a staple in English men’s wardrobes. In 2005, creative director Derrick Miller launched Barker Black, a subversive subset of Barker, which remains just as dedicated to quality-made shoes as its parent line, while turning it all on its head with signature details like skull and crossbone detailing on the classic silhouettes.

Final Few

Once in a while, we wind up with some great items that haven't found their way to a good home (read: yours). It’s tragic, we know. But there’s a silver lining — we've put all those stylish pieces in one place for easy browsing (and picking). We’ve only got a few of each item in stock, so move fast before we run out.

The Loafer

A favorite of Ivy Leaguers and Wall Streeters alike, the loafer deserves all the love it gets as one of the most versatile shoes a guy can have in his repertoire. This sale features a variety of styles, from suede versions from Ovadia & Sons to classic tassel loafers from Gordon Rush, that'll work just as well with a suit as they will with rolled khakis and a broken-in oxford.

Dressed-Up Casual

Leave the ill-fitting denim paired with a dress shirt and old New Balances to your tech department (no offense to the techies, we just call ‘em like we see ‘em). Instead, use this sale to end the week in style – pair slim-fitting dress shirts from Italia Independent with their tailored trousers, and finish off the look with a suede bomber or navy safari jacket from Longhi. If you want to throw on a tie (feel free to loosen it up and unbutton your collar), leave the sportcoat at home. Use the zip-up track jacket as your second layer under a trench or overcoat for an unapologetic layering game that’ll put the dad-jean-wearing uninitiated to shame.
