Most Interesting Brands Today – The First 5

Altan Parisian shoemakers, Altan Bottier, have been coming out with some real interesting stuff lately. Their designs are uniquely bold. Their patinas are traditonally French and super cool. Their last shapes are sharp and elegant. And their Instagram account is filled daily with incredible shoe offerings that never cease to impress. Most notable, for me, are the wholecut oxfords that come in Calf, Patent and Suede, all in incredible patinas in any color you can […]

Löf & Tung – Rivera String Loafer in Fox Suede

The new string loafer by Löf & Tung is quite the stunner. Coming in 3 colorways, my favorite of them is the Fox suede as shown above. This shade of suede is absolutely stunning.

But the question now is which version is more preferred by the people: the classic round last or the modern elongated toe? I have always preferred […]

Löf & Tung’s New Loafers

Skoaktiebolaget’s house brand, Löf & Tung, has just launched some new loafers for the Summer. Two are classic leather loafers that really don’t do it for me in an exciting way, but I love the suede versions. I have always been a fan of the braided tassel loafer, and the dark brown suede version is a must-have for any man that likes a classic yet still not too common tassel loafer. I have also really been […]

Löf & Tung – New Swedish Shoe Brand on the Block!

Many of you will be familiar with the Swedish shoe shop, Skoaktiebolaget. Few of you might, however, be familiar with the history of the owners and how they came to be. Best friends from youth, Patrik Löf and Daniel Tung have been doing things for a long while as a team, a partnership. With a background (and another company) in IT but a liking for menswear, specifically shoes, they started their shoe adventure as agents […]
