On The Way To Lorsdship: Edward Green’s & Three-Piece Suits

There are two things, both quintessentially British, that I have always wanted but have never come across the perfect opportunity of getting. When I say this, I mean in the sense that all the pieces of the puzzle did not fit. While I have never been rich, there were definitely times where I may have been able to splurge on some Edward Green’s offered on eBay or something of the sort. But simply buying […]

Today’s Favorites – Ronnie Fieg + Sebago = Nexus Project

If you don’t know, Ronnie Fieg is the man behind many of the best shoe collaborations created in 2010. Yet, this is not his first year on the scene. He has been making waves with Asics for awhile now, creating some of the coolest colorways they have ever had to offer. Hailing from New York, Mr. Fieg, has persevered and worked hard at what’s known as the ‘American Dream.’ Having aspirations to become a sneaker […]

Shoes Of The Week

I don’t know what I love more, the actual picture (the outfit, socks, pants, shoes, the shot etc.) or just the shoes themselves? This has to be one of the coolest, if not, the coolest picture I have ever seen regarding shoes. The perfectly cropped pants, just enough to show those purple socks, paired with these shoes that almost look unreal, yet in reality, are perfect pieces of art with a patina to die for! […]

My Shoes #12 – Sperry Slip-On

Over the last weekend, we actually had some really nice days in which the sun stayed out for longer than 3 hours. Considering that I am limited in the shoes that I have with me in England and that I need to post new shoes for each week, I figured that with the sun out, it would be the perfect time to pretend like it was summer and break out my classic Sperry slip-on’s. During […]

Today’s Favorites – More Saddle Shoes

If you are crazy about saddle shoes, as I am, then now is your chance to head to Leffot in NYC to get a pair of these made-to-order models by Edward Green. What I love about Edward Green, is the fact that they are this historic British shoe company that you would think would stick to making conservative shoes (like many of the historic British makers) yet on the contrary, they are always using colors […]

Blogroll Addition

Here are two pictures courtesy of the newest addition to my blogroll, Parisian Gentleman. I show these so you can get a feel of the amazing content that Hugo, the editor, provides. And while the site is in French, the pictures provided are more than enough for any sartorial enthusiast to be absolutely satisfied and more than likely, thirsty for more. I think that these two jackets, pictured above, might be the coolest jackets I […]

Today’s Favorites – Norman Vilalta, Bespoke Shoemaker

When you think of bespoke shoemakers and where they come from, you generally think about Italy, England, France and maybe if you are really knowledgeable, you also think of Hungary. But what you don’t think of, is the rest of the world such as Spain, Japan, Germany, Sweeden, the USA etc. and all of these other places that actually have bespoke shoemakers but they are just not on that grand level scale. Most shoemakers take […]

Shoes Of The Week

I can’t say who these who are by, but I must say that they are absolutely AMAZING!! These have to be the coolest roller-skates I have ever seen in my entire life, and while that it not a hard feat to overcome, no one can deny just how absolutely fantastic these are. Granted, I would have much more appreciated the actual boot as a normal wearing shoe, but the person who skates in these will […]

Today’s Favorites – Donald Pliner

I can’t really say that I am particularly fond of the shape of the oxford and the way that it’s toe box seems to severely slant upwards, but the idea behind these shoes is absolutely amazing! Red detailing on a blue shoe just might be one of my favorite color combinations, if done properly. The oxford reminds me of a bespoke shoe that my colleagues were making while I was training in Italy. It was […]

Today’s Favorites – George Cleverley

Let’s get back to some classics here. Pictured above are two George Cleverley shoes, one (the black) being a limited edition model called ‘The Churchill,’ as you can assume, named after Winston Churchill and the second (the burgundy) being what seems to be a bespoke rendition of ‘The Churchill,’ with some slight modifications to it. As you can easily notice, the bespoke version is much nicer, as it should be! This model is one […]
