576 Waxed UK in Brown and Cream

Friday, April 13th, 2007

This classy, made-in-UK 576 in brown and cream with green highlights has a leather and waxed cotton upper. I saw these in person at Frontier about a month ago and the waxed parts have the effect of crinkled paper. The pictures don’t quite do it justice! Also available at End Clothing.
