Harris Tweed Olive Guncheck Loafer
A few years ago, tired of their daily grind and inspired by a street market in Istanbul, something clicked for these two lawyers from Atlanta. The resulting brand, Res Ipsa (from the Latin phrase res ipsa loquitur meaning, “the thing speaks for itself"), started taking shape with a small production run of loafers made from vintage Kilim rugs found at the bazaar.
Over the past few seasons, they've become part of the H. Stockton extended family and we couldn't be happier to present our new collection from these wonderful gentlemen.
Our Harris Tweed capsule collection is an exciting one for us. The idea of taking such a traditional fabric and making something a little unexpected out of the cloth was very intriguing to us and we're thrilled with the results. Perhaps a little too heavy for a Southern winter, Harris Tweed is just about perfect for a shoe that can go semi-formal just as easy as it can go casual. We think they look great with an unstructured sportcoat, moleskin trouser and a Shetland sweater. On the flip-side, they add just the right touch of spice to a black cashmere blazer, grey flannel trousers and a grenadine tie.
However you choose to wear these loafers, they'll serve you well and are so comfortable, you just might mistake them for your house slippers.
Res Ipsa shoes run true to size and come in whole sizes only. If in-between, we recommend sizing down 1/2 size.
