The Braided Shoe by Allen Edmonds

One thing I have always liked about Allen Edmonds was their boldness to do a lot of braided-leather shoes. From loafers to oxfords and even derbys, they always had braided options in ‘ol catalog. And even better still, they continue offering them to this day and that is what thing I love about this classic American company. The model above is apparently one of their new options added to one of their older models, the Strand. I […]

Going Bold for Friday Festivities – Baudoin & Lange

I don’t really dress as bold as I used to. Not sure if it’s laziness, that I am getting older and just don’t care anymore about much other than making my thought process less stressful so just resort to simple colors or the fact that my tastes are actually changing. I think the latter is probably the least likely as I still appreciate seeing men go bold, like our good friend Sanjay here of @windowstomysole […]

Crockett & Jones – New Camden Tassel (less) Loafer for SS19

Crockett and Jones have broken the mold on their very classic and popular Cavendish loafers by taking away the tassels and the lining to create the new Camden model for Spring/Summer 2019. Coming in the 3 colorways as shown; Ocean, Snuff and Mushroom, your options for versatility in any of the colorways are pretty much endless. I actually love all three colors. The Mushroom is particularly interesting though. The Snuff is quite common and well […]
