DUKE & DEXTER
We, at The Rakish Gent know the importance of a great pair of shoes. Modern times being the crazy days that they are, you need a shoe for every kind of occasion. If you have been searching for modern and trend driven shoes for the evening, then we think we have found the brand for you.
Duke & Dexter is a British born footwear brand that specialises in premium loafers for men. The focus is on modern, functional and design driven shoes. Handcrafted in the UK and designed in London, the brand looks to innovate conventional shoe styles (like the humble loafer) and create a twenty first century version with an array of colours, textures, prints and motifs. The end result is a contemporary take on a menswear classic. After having launched in 2014, the label has received international recognition, having been worn by Justin Timberlake, Eddie Redmayne, Tinie Tempah and Tyson Beckford. They are now sold in the UK in reputable retailers including Liberty’s, Fenwick, Selfridges and Harrods.
The brand has been incredibly supportive of the UK fashion and crafts circuit. Each pair of shoes is handmade in Sheffield in a family run factory that boasts over 80 years of experience. We love the fact that these modern shoes are designed with care and precision and created by some of the UK’s best craftsmen.
