We havn’t seen much from Italy’s Collection Privee before today. The Italian leather merchants have a penchant for distressed material and an all around antique look about their products. These wingtips here, are done in quite a casual motif. Obviously, the worked-in appeal of them makes them more street than formal but in a brogue wing tip, they give that shot of dap, that a pair of sneakers just can’t pull off.
Reenforced lace holes look much more working class than dressy raw eyelets and with an aged leather sole, these hobo shoes pull that, “found items” outfit together like train of boxcars. Get the old timey look with Collection Privee available through Yoox.
