Shoes I Am Selling

I finally had a good look at my shoe collection and realized that I have a lot of pairs that I do not need nor hardly ever wear. And as I keep getting new ones and space is not increasing, it inevitably meant that I now need to start getting rid of some and stop hoarding. That being, I have amassed a good amount of them, polished them up and took nice photographs in the […]

The Black Cap Toe Oxford – Your Safe Bet

***Figures have changed since post was originally written*** In the safe world we live in, the black cap toe rules as the ultimate shoe for business wear. It’s usually the first shoe you get when you are a teenager, the one that your parents buy you as your first pair of smart shoes that you will have for special occasions (and then probably never wear). Then again it will most likely be the shoe that […]

The Group Shot!

  They say that you can tell a lot about a man by looking at this shoes. Hmmm, wonder what that says about me?!! Not that it matters, but it does mean that I do love seeing a group shot of other people’s shoes to get to know a bit about their personality. With this picture, which I think was very well done with the earthly tones and color coordination, it tells me that the […]

JM Weston – New Range for A/W 2014

I have been in a crazy rush today as I had taken off yesterday to tour my family around London, so everything is a bit delayed today, including emails as per usual. So bear with me if you have an outstanding one. But as always I will respond to it all. I have recently been made aware of JM Weston’s new upcoming A/WW 2014 range and I wanted to share it with all of you. […]

JM Weston’s New Black Tie Collection

In the hopes to maintain a balance between a beautiful suit and immaculate shoes when attending formal events, JM Weston has created their very own Black Tie Collection. Introducing 5 new models (some more formal than others IMHO), they have created what they feel is the perfect offering to accompany the immortal dinner suit. I quite like the fact that they are not all patent, as I do truly feel that this idea of having […]

Blue Suede Monks by JM Weston

Everyone should own a pair of blue suede shoes. Period. They are A. So versatile; B. So frickin’ cool and C. Double extra cool. You can literally wear them with anything, and I mean that. What can’t you wear them with? That is the question. Sure, not a black suit, but who wears those outside of weddings, funerals, black tie events or being a bouncer at a club? Oh yea, a lot of America does […]

An Ode to Blue Dress Shoes

I have said it at least once and I will most likely say it at least a million times more, but the simple fact is that blue dress shoes (for me) remain the most underutilized option in the footwear industry. While certain shades of blue can pose as a bit over the top, I really don’t see how a dark navy or even that Edward Green spectator (below) would be seen as any more ostentatious […]

JM Weston Oxford Boot – Beautiful!

This is a great example of how the details of a shoe/boot can help to separate itself from the rest of the competition. That being what you have here in this lovely JM Weston, is a semi-short (7 eyelets, as opposed to the common 8-9) oxford boot, that has an intricate stitching that acts as the heel counter, as well as the facing stitch, being connected all the way around. Another detail is the enlarged […]
