Guest Style Edit: Ernest Journal
Printed journal and blog Ernest is a must read for those who appreciate tradition, workmanship and ‘slow’ journalism. We asked features editor, Abigail Whyte, to put together a Christmas style edit featuring a pair of Loake shoes. She chose our iconic Chester brogue for a contemporary classic look guaranteed to put the wearer in full festive mode.
Here at Ernest we appreciate true craftsmanship and care more for timeless style than trends. This is why, when it came to curating this Christmas outfit, we opted for British-based brands and makers who care about the garments they make, use ethical and sustainable production methods, and are inspired by traditional design while adding their own modern twist.
We also love products to be practical as well as beautiful, hence our choice of the Loake Chester Rubber Sole – a classic brogue with a rubber studded sole, perfect for frosty country walks once the party’s over. We’ve teamed it up with chocolate cords, a waistcoat made from ‘cabbage’ (fabric offcuts) and a classic felt flatcap. Smart, yet understated, with a dash of country class.
