Farah was founded in El Paso, Texas, I know it’s an American brand ! 100 years ago, yes 100, by Mansour Farah, a Lebanese immigrant, and his wife in 1920.
Upon Mansour’s death in 1937 the business was taken over by his two sons James & William. Under their stewardship sales grew season after season as Farah developed from an anonymous Military and Mail Order contractor to a brand well recognised across the whole of America.
Despite slowly beginning to making its way into the UK in the 40’s, it wasn’t until the 1970s that Farah was wholly adopted internationally – such that for half a century now it’s come to be considered quintessentially British. Famous for its slim, sharp, hopsack canvas trousers, Farah played a key part in the style of Mods, Rude Boys, Casuals and the 90s’ indie music scene – each sub culture making our signature Farah F Tab its own.
The collection includes low top trainers, leather loafers, chelsea, and chukka boots, and more. There is a shoe for every occasion; for both smart and casual wear.
