Established in 2009, Clarke & Barba was inspired by a mutual love for one another and for fashion during a chance meeting in 1993. After establishing what is now Clarke & Barba, they have finally released a line of accessories for all to enjoy.

With their “fashion is about confidence” ethos, Clarke & Barba hope to share that confidence, share the fashion, share the Mode Populi.

“Fashion (Mode) for the People (Populi). Fashion is about confidence. It’s like walking with a smile on your face or having good posture. Wearing something that makes you look good on the outside will make you feel good inside*. Therefore giving you confidence to do what you want with your life. We want to share this way of positive thinking with the things that inspire us in fashion. To share the confidence, share the fashion, share the Mode Populi.”

  Andrew Lock Shoes: Quality at $250 a Pop  
 We got an email this week from Andrew Lock, a forum acquaintance who’s apparently been working behind the scenes to develop a line of men’s footwear. His goal was straightforward: good shoes for $250, retail. Certainly an admirable objective. 
 Andrew Lock shoes are goodyear welted, made in Spain and England. The Spanish-made shoes are listed as “benchgrade,” and sell for $250. The English-made shoes, called “handgrade,” sell for $450, including  this lovely boot . We haven’t handled any of the shoes yet, but I’m ready to give Andrew some credit for targeting a niche that needed targeting: more affordable simple shoes. The $250 price point for the benchgrade line is $85 less than Allen Edmonds, their most direct competition. 
 Andrew says he’ll send us a pair, so in a few weeks we’ll try to make a more comprehensive evaluation, but in the meantime,  you can check out the line at andrewlockshoes.com .
