A veteran of over four decades in the fashion world, the British designer Nigel Cabourn has made a concerted effort to team up with some of America’s classic brands here over the past several months. It started with a Red Wing Heritage Boot last September, then shifted to the outdoorsy clothier Eddie Bauer, and now, the longest running American footwear company.
