Duke & Dexter are just the sort of brand that I adore, modern and contemporary but with a (sartorial) foot firmly in tradition. Launched in 2014, the footwear label has risen to prominence as one of the finest purveyors of quality footwear out there. Specialising in traditional, smart British footwear but with an unapologetic rebellious and contemporary streak. The brand has become a favourite amongst the well dressed greater and good, including Eddie Redmayne, Ryan Reynolds, Justin Timberlake, Tinie Tempah and Tyson Beckford.
