The collab pays homage to the suedeheads of the 1960's and their fanatical approach to pin sharp dressing. Continuing the cherry red and mustard colourway of the first collaboration, we see the colours utilised in an exclusive perfectly pressed handkerchief and shirt crafted in the original gingham check from one of Brutus's first 69 shirts. The shirts will be produced in the original Hong Kong factory and feature a three-finger collar, double button dart vented sleeves and darts to the back of the shirt.
The collab will be available at selected Brutus wholesale accounts and Dr. Martens retail stores worldwide as well as online at Dr Martens and Brutus Trimfit.
