My Daily Wear’s

Always with the despire to inspire here I present some combinations that I have put together in the last few months. Some things to note: 1. My trousers always look shorter in photo than in real life. But I do like showing a bit of sock and as I wear my trousers/jeans tapered, they hike up a little. The best length, for me, is for your trouser to just kiss your shoes that way none […]

New Shoes on the Marketplace – Oct. 2020

There a lot of new shoes on The Marketplace since I last posted about this. In fact, shoes are going up regularly and it is hard to keep up with them all. As usual, I like to highlight some of the ones that catch my eye. Here is a small representation of some of the cool ones available, at great prices at that. The highlighted Allen Edmonds is pretty close to new for only over […]

How to Style Button Boots – Casually

  In the modern-day, it is not a rule that button boots have to be worn with a suit. Sure, in the Victorian and Edwardian times, they did not wear chinos, jeans, and the like but instead wore them with proper trousers, suits, and their garb of the era.

Corduroy Sneakers – Ankari Fluross

  I have always been a sucker for corduroy. So much so, that I have two bespoke suits in it ;-). Funny enough, I do not have my shoes in it though, but that is mainly as I think that it would be a harder sell in dressier footwear so am hesitant to release them. But these corduroy sneakers by Ankari Fluross are super cool, particularly the dark brown one. I almost felt tempted to […]

The Brown Suede Derby Boot

I like the Sun but I am not a Summer guy. Growing up in Seattle the most beautiful season there is easily Autumn and the weather all year round is most similar to Autumnal weather in any regular city that does not rain 50% of the time. With that in mind, Autumn has always been my favorite. Sartorially, it has been mainly for two reasons. 1. I love boots. And 2. I love to layer […]
