English refinement gone astray

The Barker Black men’s footwear label, first founded in England in 1880, oozes with the special British gent appeal that any bloke of sophistication and style desires for his wingtips or gray calf high-top sneakers. A Ralph Lauren defector and his brother (Kirk and Derrick Miller) partnered with the line, infusing its shoes with a flavorful punk flair that the label describes as ‘subversive.’ The contemporary aesthetic commingles with the stodgier high-end design for which Barker Black is best known, and the resulting collection is relevant and suitably NoLita, where the brothers launched the American outpost of this British company.

The heavy, historic skull-and-crossbones logo gets pep in its step from the lighter, more-playful spin the brothers put on the footwear, the the resulting store—with black-painted exposed brick walls, worn leather couch and faded Union Jack flag—screams two words: Posh & punk.
