T.U.K – January’s Brand of the Month

Posted By: FYFO on 21 January 2016

FYFO is all about giving our customers a wide range of choice, styles and brands in one place! We stock over 100 brands but nothing quite as unique as our choice for January’s brand of the month! T.U.K are far from your typical footwear brand, they aspire to be different, creating ranges of fashion-led shoes with a gritty edge. Classic elements such as brogue styling are given a vulcanised sole, while your traditional court shoe is given a make-over in the shape of a cat face. Never conforming but always evolving, T.U.K have become recognized worldwide for their creepers, even gaining celebrity fans such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry.

 

 

 

Born in England, raised San Diego and still based in California, T.U.K have combined British sensibilities with that southern California lifestyle to become the brand they are today. They took inspiration from the underground, creating footwear for music enthusiasts, punks, bands and individuals with diverse styles. Opening their first store in 1991 in in San Diego, T.U.K’s popularity quickly took off and soon enough the official T.U.K wholesale company began. They have been continually growing ever since, distributing internationally by 2003 and collaborating with some of the most renowned musicians around.

 

 

T.U.K are constantly innovating in terms of styling, detailing, colour palettes and materials used in their designs. Our favourites from this season collection include the classic monochrome Viva Mondo creeper and the Dragonscale Ankle Boot. This boot was chosen by our T.U.K Facebook competition winner, Arianwen Robertshaw, as her prize! We want to thank all that entered; we had a wonderful response, keep your eyes peeled for news of February’s brand of the month!

Gant – October’s Brand of the Month

Posted By: FYFO on 19 October 2015

FYFO are very pleased to welcome Gant as our brand of the month for October. This classic American brand may be known for their tailored shirts but their footwear range continues to expand and grow from strength to strength. Staying true to the brands heritage and image, Gant have created shoes that are structured, timeless and of exceptional quality. Tightly connected to the apparel, the footwear collection is developed around the same three seasonal themes as set by Gant’s head creatives. Gant’s journey to a credible, modern fashion brand has been detailed but they have developed from their American sportswear roots, infusing a sophisticated European style to become a unique and much loved brand. However, it all began with a Ukrainian boy in search of his American dream. 

 

 

A 17-year-old Berl Gantmacher started life in America by changing his name to Bernard and enrolling in night classes at Columbia University’s College of Pharmacy. Soon he found himself work on the Lower East Side of New York; the hub of the city’s busy garment industry. Bernard worked hard and learnt the trade of tailoring. It was here that he would meet the woman who would become his wife, Rebecca Rose. His new found entrepreneurial skills led to him partnering with Morris Shapiro and founding the Par-Ex Shirt Company based in Brooklyn. Par-Ex made shirts par excellence for other brands, including Brooks Brothers. After enjoying success, the Par-Ex Shirt Company, relocated to upscale New Haven, Connecticut where Bernard and Rebecca started a family. Marty and Elliot Gantmacher would influence their father’s business hugely. They recognised the change in traditions after the Second World War; America was entering a period of new kinds of art, music and fashion. This provided new opportunity for the family business and the son’s convinced their father it was time to leave Par-Ex behind and establish their own label selling tailored shirts. Consequently, Gant Inc was born in 1949. 

 

 

To this day Gant headquarters hold and archive of Gant shirts from the founding year of the company to present, each a source of inspiration for collections to come. Creative Director, Christopher Bastin places huge important on this archive as a design foundation for the company, stating that “having a legacy is something that sets you apart and gives you authenticity and credibility. And, most importantly, it gives you a platform and security as a brand.” This proves that despite adapting to the modern times, Gant has remained and will always remain faithful to the Gantmacher’s vision.

 

You can find our full range of Gant footwear, including some of our favorite styles like Spencer and Laura, on FYFO here!
