  • Hip flasks and Hot Tips for Tipples

    Hip flasks and Hot Tips for Tipples

    When it comes to choosing the right flask and the right drink to put in it, Regent’s here to help you use your melon…

    The inside of a melon – yessir, whenever you sneak a swig from your favourite trusty hip flask, remember that this is where it all started when, in the Middle Ages, folk would carve out the insides of fruits to store their liquor in for carrying. Indeed, this quirky, semi-secretive and crafty spirit has been borne through the evolution of the hip flask across the ages, where it’s now become a beloved, intimate and crucial item for any gentlemen of leisure who keeps his drink close to his heart.

    Whether slotted into your cartridge pouch for a shoot, or slipped into your suit pocket for an evening out, the modern hip flask – often burnished in fine leather and inscribed with a quip – has it’s own spirit: like a personal sprite or imp, it sits in your jacket fuelling you with a sense of adventure. We’re here to help you decide what to put inside it to keep the spirit of the hip flask alive.

    The ideal, most sought after beverage is a blended or single malt whisky: you want something that piques and then keeps your interest, something that justifies the small, spread-out sips that a hip flask encourages across an evening.

    Our bet would be Sheep Dip's classic blend, thanks to its production from thirteen single malts, all expertly entwined from different regions across Scotland. This gives the whisky a continual rolling tangle of different flavors: a mellow and sweet nose follows up on a raw oat and biscuit character for the palate, while the finish is reminiscent of a ripe apple skin, taking you on a dusky summer-evening journey across flavors. This is a whisky whose unique, intelligent entrapment of various different notes is something that other whiskies have tried to attain but often fail at: Sheep Dip has it all.

    Another fitting liquor for the hip flask is The Highland Harvest Sauternes Finished Single Malt. Just as the name suggests, this whisky is aged in French sweet wine barrels, gifting this elegant, floral whisky a marmalade, orange and honey layer and making it wonderfully moreish, sweet to nose and mouth. Crafted by the Organic Spirit Company, this whisky harnesses lovingly harvested organic crops to create an unusual yet easy to love drink. Balanced and fruitful, this is that sweeter treat that’ll keep you entertained over a nighttime adventure.

  • SHOES AT REGENT: FEET ON THE GROUND, HEAD IN THE CLOUDS

    SHOES AT REGENT: FEET ON THE GROUND, HEAD IN THE CLOUDS

    They say you shouldn’t judge a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes: Regent not only aim to provide footwear that’ll make this mile-long trek a walk in the park comfort-wise, but we also seek to make you the very object of desire in this well-known proverb – when others see you in a pair of Regent’s unique, fantastically stylish shoes, or some of the Redwing Boots or Ludwig Reiter trainers we stock, they’ll be chasing after you to enquire where you got them.

    It all started for Jason Regent with what became the Romany, the first Chelsea boot he designed.  The story goes that Jason was wearing an old pair – enormously popular amongst riders thanks to their support, sturdiness and sleek style – when he got the chance to ride Romany King, the winner of the Grand National champion, and had trouble getting a foot out of the stirrup. The shoe looked great, but wasn’t quite doing the trick, so Jason went away and perfected the design, giving the boot a higher neck, resulting in a unique, distinct twist on the famous boot that still has heads turning today. This is a typical example of what gives rise to a Regent shoe: with our feet on the ground in terms of practicality, durability and comfort, and our head in the sky when it comes to dreaming up that idiosyncratic twist on things that’ll make your footwear unique, we’ve harnessed the wild ride between true style and true comfort.

    All Regent shoes are Goodyear welted, which means they can be fully re-soled, as and when the  time comes; Goodyear welting marks the intent of a shoe that’s bound to run and run, unlike much of the contemporary footwear you’ll find on the high-street today that barely withstands a year’s worth of wear. We welt our shoes like this because we make them for life, and, of course, we design them with the same timeless intent. Again, unlike other high-street brands, all our shoes are 100% British-made (many brands claim this, whilst shipping parts from overseas and only assembling them in the UK). We make ours in Northampton, the home of the legendary Joseph Cheaney, and on the sole of our shoes you’ll see the stamp of the Regent butterfly or skull, marking out the source of it’s unique design.

    Regent has a tremendous relationship with Joseph Cheaney, something we’re proud of and which sets us in great stead for the highest possible quality. Cheaney, with their centuries of expertise, remain at the forefront of the noble tradition of shoe and bootmaking and have even been recognised by royalty, awarded the Queen’s award for Enterprise in 2016. We’ve always stocked Cheaney and they’ve made our shoes since the very beginning and that famous Romany boot. We’re an official stockist and have full access to their catalogue for customers, so feel free to pop in and see for yourself what the full force of tradition and innovation looks like.

    Regent has got you covered for any style of shoe, from traditional to radical, impeccably smart to ultra urbane. Our Regent/Cheaney range is versatile and classic, able to accommodate any kind of outfit, situation or social scenario. Our Samoa Desert boot is an all-time favourite, workable with chinos or jeans for the ultimate smart-casual, while our famous Monk shoe has customers flocking from miles around to get the perfect take on a legendary but difficult-to-perfect shoe. We’ve honed our keen eye for detail, difference and comfort on every style, from tasselled loafers to leather boots, meaning you’re covered for life wearing something that never dates.

    Finally, we stock a couple of choice brands we love and trust. Red Wing is an iconic, beautiful brand specialising in the best leather boots around, much beloved by fashionistas and the folk who go to work in them alike. Hand-made from carefully selected pieces of leather by Red Wing experts, these boots are sturdy, comfy and seriously badass, putting the boss of all finishing touches to any outfit: we’re truly proud to purvey these beauties, and they’re a firm customer favourite. We also love our Ludwig Reiters – like the Red Wings, these trainers are Goodyear welted and are of the very highest possible luxury and style, the crème de la crème of trainer chic. Coming straight out of Vienna, these shoes are quietly dazzling, coming in an array of luxurious soft tones with simple, elegant designs, and are also absurdly comfortable to boot – the company pay special attention to the ‘moving centre’, the connection between the upper part of the shoe and the lower, where they’ve formed something flexible and durable that doesn’t skimp on aerodynamics and style. We’re especially chuffed with our unique collaboration with Ludwig Reiter, the Maronibrater Boot, a twist on the mountain boots worn by workers in Vienna, now updated to give the pinnacle of walking, working, functional fashion, seriously warm and comfy, perfect for long winter walks and any outdoor activity.

  • Iconic Look

    Iconic Look

    Regent takes the inspiration for our ‘Iconic Look’ from the likes of Steve McQueen and James Dean: legends whose style never goes out of fashion and whose look is instantly recognisable. We believe there are four key pieces every man should have in his wardrobe: the Baracuta G9, a classic crew neck T-shirt, a pair of selvage jeans and a pair of desert boots. Each of these items carries a great history and has been worn by many gamechangers within the fashion and film industry.

    The Baracuta has been around since the 1950s: it is simple, neat, comfortable and smart. All kinds of people adopted the jacket, from presidents such as J. F. Kennedy, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad and George W. Bush to monumental cultural figures such as Steve McQueen.  It is lightweight but still showerproof and suitable for all ages. It became a staple menswear item in the twentieth century after it kept cropping up in popular culture; in the 1960s it was was part of every teenagers’ uniform, prefiguring the preppy style that, twenty years later, would be rejuvenated by the MOD and ‘skinheads’ in the UK.

    The selvage jean is the utmost original and very first style of jean production. The name comes from the term “Self Edge”, indicating a boundary-pushing inclination to those who wore it, and mirroring the fabric’s woven edge. The style rose to popularity with the likes of the 501 by LEVI’S; as jean-wear gained momentum around the world, modernization took a hold and the older looms that these jeans were produced on became obsolete. However, fashion has been forever craving their return thanks to selvedge denim’s denser, stronger weave allowing for that coveted longevity and nicely-aged look. The culture for selvedge wear is as great today as it has ever been, with smaller brands such as Hiut Denim in Wales leading the charge back to the avant-garde.

    The desert boot is undeniably one of the most versatile items in anyone’s footwear artillery: it can be worn with a suit to lessen the overly-formal edge, as pioneered by Hardy Aimes in the 1960s; on the other hand, it can look mighty sharp when worn with a distressed jacket and jeans or with chinos and a shirt. Like any thing at the top of its game, the desert boot found the peak of its evolution eons ago, and has remained there ever since: it goes way back to when the traders in Ciro’s Old Bazar needed solid footwear for being on their feet all day, then becoming an unofficial part of the British Army uniform for soldiers serving in North Africa during the Second World War before finally finding it’s vote of confidence in the shoe pioneer Nathan Clark, who sported a crepe-soled rough suede version. When he returned home from his adventures in 1949, Clark asked Bill Tuxhill to re-invent the shoe. Although British people took to it heartily, the boot was not launched in the Europe for another 15 years. It finally became a big hit in the United States as part of the preppy look’s evolution in the 1950s after its launch at the Chicago shoe fair that Clark himself spearheaded.
