An entire window near their main entrance is dedicated to the Jack Purcell x Hudson's Bay Company sneakers collaboration.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Now before I go any further: are all Jack Purcells Converse sneakers, but not all Converse sneakers are Jack Purcells? In the words of Zack Johnson (Big Bang Theory's Penny's hunky ex-boyfriend): "are all thumbs fingers, but not all fingers are thumbs?". I LOVE The Big Bang Theory, but let's not wander too far here. I really should Wikipedia stuff before I blog. Jack Purcell was a Canadian world champion badminton player, who designed the popular sneakers that we are all wearing today. Converse purchased the trademark in the 70s, so it is not wrong to address them as Converse Jack Purcell.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">What about Chuck Taylor you ask. Chuck was a basketball player who worked for Converse in the 1920s and was credited for improving the design of the sneakers we all still love today. And those <a href="http://00o00.tumblr.com/post/60287278456/chadldn-such-a-nice-boy-converse-sneakers" target="_blank"><span style="background-color: #eeeeee; color: red;">classics do not go out of style</span></a>. Jack Purcell sneakers have a 'smiley' face at the front. Confusing yet?</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">So Canadian retailer Hudson's Bay Company collaborated with Converse Jack Purcell, originally a Canadian. And I saw the shoes in the window of Selfridges, also owned by Canadians. Nice link? The shoes are gorgeous, my picture probably doesn't do it justice. These are not the regular white sneakers painted with coloured stripes. The body was made with the iconic Hudson's Bay wool blanket which you can see from official pics below:</div><br /><img alt="00O00 Menswear Blog: Jack Purcell x Hudson’s Bay Company, Converse x Maison Martin Margiela September 2013" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-tJ4wEDZw8-4/Uiym3h1KokI/AAAAAAAATPw/QK-rPWBJ3ok/s1600/photo%2B1-713690.JPG" width="600px" /><br /><img alt="00O00 Menswear Blog: Jack Purcell x Hudson’s Bay Company, Converse x Maison Martin Margiela September 2013" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-eTobP1ELfWU/Uiym32D3AYI/AAAAAAAATP8/oKi24uMfbpo/s1600/photo%2B2-715434.JPG" width="600px" /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Converse Jack Purcell x Hudson's Bay Company sneakers / Nikeinc</span><br /><br /><div style="text-align: justify;">Ironically, I could not find the shoes online at Selfridges.

In signature Margiela style, the Jack Purcell and Chuck Taylor sneakers (you still following??) are all hand painted in Margiela's iconic white paint. Available in red, black, navy, and Margiela-exclusive vintage yellow, the white paint will peel off over time to reveal the base colour and achieve an artisanal effect.</div><br /><img alt="00O00 Menswear Blog: Jack Purcell x Hudson’s Bay Company, Converse x Maison Martin Margiela September 2013" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-C2ezuwRr7Bg/Uiym4cncFOI/AAAAAAAATQI/Sl8KMfA4GFo/s1600/image-717494.jpeg" width="600px" /><br /><img alt="00O00 Menswear Blog: Jack Purcell x Hudson’s Bay Company, Converse x Maison Martin Margiela September 2013" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Ki7sGMEP0u4/Uiym5GtF9sI/AAAAAAAATQY/rj8uxMa5u7s/s1600/image-719949.jpeg" width="600px" /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">Converse x Maison Martin Margiela / Nikeinc</span><br /><br /><div style="text-align: justify;">Do you have a favourite yet?
