These classic gentleman's derbies were crafted in England at the prestigious Barker factory - a footwear specialist with a legacy that dates back to 1880.
A sophisticated and elegant design, these Kelmarsh derbies have been crafted to the highest industry standards - sourcing a traditional calfskin leather that has been tanned in Annonay, France. For the construction, L'Exception chose a durable Storm Welt to ensure ultimate protection from the elements and a non-slip sole for added everyday functionality - using a Made in England method to ensure the finest finished product.
Due to their British provenance, the below size chart applies:
