The footwear in the collection combines the Hard Mod, terrace bootboy and Rude Boy looks and attitude together. Unlike the Dr. Martens Autumn Winter Collection, the footwear in the Spirit of ’69 Collection stays true to the original styles, paying incredible attention to the smallest details such as the specifications on the leather, the color and the method, the footwear were designed to replicate whole process of when the shoes were first manufactured in the early days of Dr. Martens.

Favored by the early skinheads, the Brutus ‘trimfit’ shirt complete with the 3-finer collar, double button dart vented sleeves and darts on the back has a sharp, tailored fit silhouette. The classic oxblood and yellow check pattern fits the colors to the Dr. Martens footwear, as well as bringing back the authentic skinhead style.

Known for their strength and durability, the Edwin Jeans had a legend about the jeans standing up on their own after washing which made them championed by many subcultures. Using innovative techniques, the brand re-interprets the ‘vintage’ styles giving it a modern touch.

Using the same construction and stitch details of the infamous MA-1 flight jackets from Alpha Industries, the Bomer Jacket comes in black and oxblood nylon with striking yellow linings in the style of Dr. Martens’ footwear. The jackets were first introduced into Europe in the form of black market imports of American army surplus. Since then they have become a subcultural item!
