Today’s Favorites – Scarpe Di Bianco

While I am not crazy about the burnishing job that Scarpe Di Bianco did on the toes and heels, I do love the fact that they darkened the leather where the brogueing takes place. This feature provides a great way to accentuate the brogue and while this might be quite loud for some, I find it to be something that will help differentiate the model from all of the other full-brogues that would look exactly […]

My Shoes #6 – Church’s Spectators

† You have to love a nice spectator. It’s one of the few shoes that can be put to use during all of our beautiful four seasons and be worn with many different types of clothing. Not only can you pair them with a smart suit, or just some nice trousers and a button-up but best of all, they look great with a nice pair of jeans. Even though the weather here in England is […]
