Bold Colored Pants – Giving Your Shoes More Options

What I love about men’s fashion in Italy is their (the men) ability to wear bold colored articles of clothing and make them look good and quite masculine, even when it is a bright color. Red and purple pants are normal much like khaki pants in America. Its just natural for them to be more colorful and to tell you the truth, it looks better than the same boring, monotone outfits you see day in […]

Shoe Do’s & Shoe Don’ts Pt 1 – Dress Shoes

I see so many wannabe stylish men all the time and can’t stand when they are just wearing the worst shoes possible yet think that they are just so cool. Its even worse when their wannabe cool girlfriends lead them to believe that they are stylish and then you just get a terrible looking couple with no style what-so-ever YET they think that they are so stylish. You see this a lot in Seattle and […]

The Best Shoe Store In America

Its rare these days that you find a store that sells strictly men’s shoes, especially one that revolves mostly around dressier shoes. This is the case, however, for Leffot in Manhattan, NY. (On the website it claims to also carry women’s shoes, as of 2009, yet I have never seen any on the website’s blog nor when I went in?) Having opened in May of 2008, Mr. Steven Taffel, the owner, wanted to create a […]

The Return Of The Classics Part 2 – Saddle Shoes

When executed well the saddle shoe can be the most stylish shoe style in existence. The sad thing about it, is that you don’t hardly see them anymore and you don’t see them created to their full potential. If you do see them in America, you see them in the classic form, white with a black or navy saddle but you never see them in other color forms which is where their style can really […]
