It's a classic look, ready for your sophisticated twist. For a limited time, make your NB1 998 with high-end Horween® leather. This leather is made by one of the finest tanneries in the United States, and the leather's distinction comes from its unique and natural characteristics. Any markings or subtle color variations should not be viewed as imperfections, but rather as a unique aspect of its premium quality. Combine this supple leather with a herringbone pattern to make your look even more rich and sophisticated. This durable twill fabric is available in a variety of exclusive winter colors.
