Jack Wills Brogues from Jack Wills on Vimeo.

The British are invading again.  This time in the form of Tweed jackets, country brogues, Fair Isle sweaters and Union Jack flags.  Born and bred for the collegiate prep, Jack Wills is the newest retail shop to open its doors to DC.  Located in Georgetown, the English born brand celebrated its grand opening last week.  We'll be stopping in to give you a peek at the offerings but we think the most interesting news about Jack Wills is the shoemaker behind its brogues.Northhamptonshire Productive Society (NPS) Shoes Limited has been in the shoe making business since 1881 and is the exclusive cobbler for Jack Wills.  The Oxford brogue of the Heritage Collection is the most commonly made shoe and comes in Black, Tan, Burnt Tan, Beechnut, and Mid Brown.  Goodyear welt construction and over 200 individual stages from start to finish is the standard which provides strength, comfort, flexibility, insulation, and easy repair.  Watch out for the redcoats.
