Christian Kimber Appreciation Thread

post #1 of 110
Thread Starter 

Thought I'd start a thread for those of us to post pics of the Christian Kimber stuff we have. For those who don't know, Christian is Melbourne-based and has designed a lot of really cool footwear and accessories. Most recently, he did a collaboration with Eidos Napoli.

 

I'll kick off with these:

 

Shoes:

 

 

 

 

Squares

:

 

Scarf:

 

Tote:

 

 

Post some of yours and let's see some Kimber stuff in the wild!

Bought his eidos collab brown suede jodhpurs because they are pretty much the perfect jodhpurs, and exactly what I was looking for in a pair.

Pretty cool, @mossrockss! I really like the way the straps cross at the back.

I really do regret not picking those up while they were available in my size. Here's my contribution that I posted in the Eidos thread. I've got a pair of chukkas on the way and am looking to steadily expand my collection.

The chukkas are sweet. I had just bought some Meermin's in snuff suede (pictured in my pic with the rug above) before the CK's came into a price range I could've afforded to consider, otherwise I definitely would've gone for those.

@thecool85, those look really nice - different enough from a penny, tassel or string loafer to stand out but not in a bad way. Are those olive suede?

Dang those green loafers look really nice! I was thinking about getting the grey tassels they have on sale on their website but wasn't 100% in love.

I'm still trying to work out what goes well with my grey suede chukkas. So far, dark blue denim and white denim seem to work well. What would you wear them with?

Really glad to see this thread. I have a bunch of Kimber stuff that I love - including shoes, wallet and pocket squares.
I seriously think the squares esp are some of the best in the world - great design, great fabric and so versatile.
I'll try to add some photos later, not that my standards are up to Gerry's.

Thanks guys! I'm a big fan of Christian's work in general, but these loafers really made an impression on me. They are, indeed, olive suede. I also contemplated getting the grey tassels and I still may before it's all said and done. They seem like an excellent summer shoe to wear with a light colored denim and maybe a white polo or seersucker shirt. They'd go pretty well with white chinos or a really light stone/cream colored chino as well. I feel like the white and blue pinstripes help tie it in with colors that it wouldn't necessarily pair excellently with if it were all grey.

Here's my C Kimber wallet - Gerry has the same one but significantly thinner as he always has to shout me drinks.



I think Pink Socks also has the same one but I don't think his has ever been opened as he's Scottish.

Then again I should be careful about stereotyping the Scots as mean. There was a recent letter to a newspaper from an Aberdonian which read: "If you print any more jokes about mean Scotsmen I shall stop borrowing your paper!"

Nice color for a wallet. Nice pen as well! What is it?

Blue and jeans are definitely my favorite. Odd color chinos like burgundy also work in my opinion, just because the shoes sort of bring down the odd color of the pants.
