Inkerman + Ministry of Supply

Several weeks ago Inkerman was lucky to receive a new neighbor: The Ministry of Supply Pop-up shop! A Canadian based menswear brand, Ministry of Supply is a pioneer in the development of performance dress clothes that “fit like J Crew but feel like Nike.” We are excited to pair our elegant rubber-soled dress shoes with Ministry of Supply’s incredible products.

Catching Up With Some Inkerman Osborne’s

Inkerman caught up with some old friends–a pair of three-year-old Inkerman Camel-Suede Osbornes! We wanted to hear about the shoes–where they’d been, and how they’d held up. What we discovered below.

What’s the most exciting place you’ve been in your Osborne’s?

Probably a black sand beach on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Wow, can you tell us about the paint splotches?

Okay–this one I’m not super proud of–I was roped into painting my friend’s apartment–and was caught unprepared in my loafers. Several hours later I was deemed a very good friend, but with paint-splattered loafers. I actually get compliments that my shoes look rustic–so I’ve decided to keep the look.

Any rain storms?

Yep. Definitely got stuck in a couple of those. My Osborne’s have held their own, though.

What does the future hold in store for them?

IMG_2718-2I am going to pass this pair on to my little brother. He finds their weathered look hip or something. I, on the other hand, have been eyeing the Navy Suede Osborne’s for quite some time.

My Inkerman Story

Two weeks ago Inkerman received a very kind testimony from a happy father who had been gifted a pair of Camel Suede Osborne’s.

“I love my Inkerman’s

They are beautiful, very comfortable with great and equally nicely designed insoles…evidence of close attention to detail

They skate line between kind of dressy and kind of informal hence occasion and outfit flexible, as well as being a shoe for all seasons from summer to winter

Always getting compliments

Cool for a guy my age”
