“Tenacious For Quality” is the mantra of this cult Japanese-American brand which bends over backwards to recreate the quality of classic American leather goods and then refresh these iconic styles for modern times by adding artisanal Japanese design elements. Founded by Yuki Matsuda in 1989, Yuketen scours the world for the best raw materials such as buttery and supple oiled leathers tanned in America or silky full-grain flesh-out leather that’s suede tanned in Toscana, Italy,.
Is there any more ringing endorsement for a beach shoe style than to be name-checked in The Beach Boys “Surfin’ USA” We think not and that’s why we’re proud to stock this hand-cut and hand-woven hybrid of a sandal and a loafer known as the Hurache Alejandro. Based on a traditional Mexican sandal, the Alejandro is made in Mexico and features a Vibram sole. It’s like wearing a piece of folk art but just more comfortable. And we like to think of these as the official dress shoe of The New Normal. Dressy enough to wear to the office with chinos; casual enough for a bike to the beach.
