in Tan Antique Calf & Tan Willow Grain. Featuring a single handmade and polished buckle, Rendenbach leather soles, Turner is a demi-boot to be cherished and cared for. From the 140th Anniversary Collection.
A new form, developed specifically for the collection - Last 140. Including black sole stain & British racing green linings
HAND POLISHED TO PERFECTION
There are no shortcuts when hand polishing fine calf uppers. Patience, high quality shoe care products and an understanding of the material in hand are key. Every shoe and material is different and must be colour matched by pair, giving them an equal and rich lustre that makes the leather sing.
THE FINEST FANCY STITCHING
A skill to behold. Stitching leather is not for the feint hearted. Unlike woven cloth, a needle and thread punch through calf leather making holes in their wake. Once finished every magnificent stitch sits on the surface and are plain to see. Mistakes are costly but the rewards are beautifully stitched uppers.
