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.

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.
