The Boss. The King. The Duke. You can put “the” in front of anything and it immediately sounds more important, regal, and awesome. Nixon has a penchant for doing this with everything, but we’re not going to fault them because they never release the crap. The Duke is the newest addition to their limited edition line of crossovers with Barney’s New York (should have used the) so it’s obviously more pricey. Black or brown leather band with a face very similar to The Player (including the diamond). Why do you want The Duke when you already have The Player? The Duke has been discontinued for a while and Nixon dusted off the classic for the 25th Anniversary of Barney’s. They’re also using Horween leather (read: the best) exclusively for the bands.
