Golden Beauty by Aubercy

Most shoes that I see that are tan are brogues. And it gets a bit boring after a while as tan brogues while can be nice, just don’t really do it for me. But every now and then someone makes a tan shoe that is simply stunning and this one here by Aubercy just might take the cake for best one yet. The subtle pairing between this tan leather and the light snuff looking suede […]

The Best Shade of Tan by Carmina

    For me, tan is a hard color to get right. If it is way too bright, it is hard to wear with most suits that we have in our wardrobe. If it is too dark then it might as well be mid-brown. Getting it just right is where the trick lies. The problem is that it cannot really be done just by buying the leather (from the tannery). You have to alter it […]

Italigente: The Review

Shoes Of The Week – George Cleverley

These just might be one of the prettiest brogues that I have ever seen. They simply look immaculate and have a very clean-looking feel about them and that is always what drives me towards a shoe. The gimping (shark teeth like design around hole perforations) is very small and does not detract from the design as some brogues do when their gimping is large and overbearing on the eye. And the color — it’s quite […]

My Shoes #20 – To Boot New York

During my time at Nordstrom, I acquired a lot of To Boot New York shoes and this was one of the first models that I got, and definitely my favorite. It is just such a great summer shoe and it looks good with jeans but can also be dressed up in a casual sort of way. The toe, while it was already darkened from the get-go, was probably the first burnish that I ever actually […]
