To celebrate the release of the Nigel Cabourn x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey, we are teaming up with them both for an evening of 1940′s fun!
Join us in a transformed End Hunting Co. on Thursday 11th April from 6-9pm for drinks, meets and greets with Nigel Cabourn and a raffle to win not only a pair of the collaborative Bosey boots, but also a Nigel Cabourn Taped Ventile Aircraft Jacket that inspired them.
The party will be continuing at No.28 from 9pm with a special DJ set and live performance from Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra, cut-throat shaves from DemonBarber1969 and 1940s inspired cocktails. The winner of the raffle prize will also be announced.
Cabourn examines Converse’s rich American heritage of boots and sneakers created for the outdoors and the military, and infuses his own designs into the Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey with rich Ventile fabric uppers in military-inspired navy and olive green colors. Ventile fabric was developed for use in WWII flight suits as a material to protect Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire pilots when they ejected from their planes into icy cold waters. The Ventile fabric extended survival time tenfold and saved many ejected pilots’ lives. Suits made with Ventile fabric remain in use by British Royal Air Force to this day.
