Proctecting Your Shoes From Rain

Coming from a very rainy part of the world, I truly understand what it feels like to get soaked from head to toe and to almost ruin, if not ruin, a pair of shoes from constant rain and no protection. Having had several of these experiences and being tired of them, I wised up and invested in a pair of cheap galoshes. Now I won’t get caught without them in certain cities and times of […]

The Return Of The Classics Part 1 – Spats

There was a time when dress codes very much encompassed our societies. A time where almost everyone dressed elegantly and cared about how they presented themselves whether it was for a job interview or to just take a stroll in the street.

Trends – Why Do We Follow Them?

I never understood why people follow trends. We all know that trends have a short lifespan and then it will be on to the next ‘big thing’. This ‘thing’ being something that some group of individuals somewhere on our planet decided to coin as ‘cool’ and trendy and then everybody follows suit. Yet what about style? Style’s lifespan is infinite and looks good always, not just from ’94 to ’95. Don’t get me wrong, I […]

Unfortunately not! So, why not maximize our investment and treat our shoes […]

Shoes More, Suits Less!

Suits don’t make you look good if you are wearing bad shoes!!! In my retail experience I always encountered men who weren’t willing to spend $300 on a pair of shoes but willing to drop $1000 on some average suit. It really boggled my mind considering it should be the other way around. But you get countless men who are just like this. Why? I ask myself this question all the time and since I […]

What Makes A Shoe It’s Price

So many people are completely oblivious to the value of a good shoe and the reason why buying good shoes is better for your health, your look and believe or not, also your wallet. Therefore I will enlighten you to clear up the mystery of why this is so. (To keep things clarified, I will say that a shoe $200 and below is a cheap shoe and anything above that is a good one) Let’s […]

Shoe Color vs. Suit Color

There is no right or wrong when it comes to colors of shoes being paired with suits, what matters is what looks good and what doesn’t. I have seen so many so called ‘Style Advisers’ tell people “You can’t wear tan shoes with navy suits or black shoes with brown suits etc.” but yet have seen so many people wear these combos so gracefully and well done that it just goes to show that these […]

My Story

Many of you who read my blog may already know me and some of you may not as much but the history of how I came to be where I am at now is by far less known. I originally wanted to add a ‘biography’ link to my page but since I am not so fluent in computer technology, i.e. hosting my own website, I decided to just tell my story as a blog post […]
