It’s hard not to get swept up in Converse Jack Purcell’s coming-together. Even years on. Reimagined with modern craftsmanship and superior comfort, these monochromatic kicks bounce the city streets – both day and night.
The best part? Converse Jack Purcell sneakers can be worn with a variety of looks: from suits to chinos to a vibrant pair of floral shorts.
#1 Summertime Suave
Nothing says ‘summer’ and ‘suave’ like beige cotton tailoring and white shoes. Converse Jack Purcell’s found a crisp cotton shirt with pocket square for a night-time edge. A suave M.J. Bale beige suit means a tie and socks aren’t mandatory. Pared back elegance at its best.
#2 Denim Intelligence
The soft black of the Nappa calls for a something ‘denim’. A Zara denim shirt, neatly untucked over Dolce and Gabbana chino, adds a smart aesthetic to the intelligent denim look.
Then, monochrome accessories: Illesteva shades, a leather bag from Opperman and a Thomas Sabo watch. And the contrast white outsole of the Nappa stands its ground, making the sneaker pop.
#3 Perfectly Prep
Channelling the retro feels, collating an outfit of timeless prep is essential Converse Jack Purcell dressing. Looking to clean lines, a stripey blue button-down shirt plays senior to a pair of college-green chinos from Uniqlo.
Gucci’s nautical bomber creates a neutral palette for the white sneakers to star; as do the finer details of a brown Anderson’s belt, made more collegiate with dark shades and a B&M watch.
#4 Beach Ready
Navy is the new black for seaside sneakers. The sombre blue is dark enough to go with most, carrying a nautical nonchalance that make it perfect for summer. Tailored shorts in strong vintage floral print care of Uniqlo are best and a navy polo ups the style game with Dior sunnies and Breitling watch.
Top it off with a panama hat; seamless with the Converse which are just so darn stylish.
#5 Bondi Street Chic
Want street sans sloppiness? The minimal shell and maximum comfort sole offers a melange of ‘street’ and ‘chic’, just by way of design.
A white tee matches the neutral palette, worn slim and untucked over Claude Maus waxy denim – capped off with a bien stylé Merci Bien cap in black. The cut and khaki hue of the Burberry trench adds a trans-seasonal layer and depth in colour, matching the luxury in the sneaker.

Converse Jack Purcell Signature Classic Colors
The original sneaker has remained unamended since its glory days in the Thirties; crafted in a sturdy canvas upper and matching-fabric lining, modernised with a removable EVA insert for comfort. Then, pick your colour: navy, black, white, mason or crimson.
Converse Jack Purcell Signature Leather
The leather sneaker is the most versatile for a men’s wardrobe. An upgraded version of the original kick, the Converse Jack Purcell Signature Leather Sneaker retains the shoe’s much-loved silhouette and all of the trimmings that made the shoe an American icon.
Converse Jack Purcell Signature
The Converse Jack Purcell Signature Sneaker blurs craftsmanship and contemporary comforts. Like its leather brother, this model offers 18 new features – a footbed with Nike Zoom Air Technology, undercutting a stronger, two-ply duck canvas inspired by army specifications.
Converse Jack Purcell Nappa Leather
Both formal and casual, the Nappa comes in a soft cowhide leather with perfectly tonal stitching that is off-set by quasi-active laces. These elements make the high-top shaft workable for any occasion.
