Today’s Favorites – Sebago’s The Patriot

After having some pretty cold weather these last few weeks in London, the sun (and warmth) finally came out today, which almost gave the feeling of a Spring arrival. Now, I must say that I have a real love/hate relationship with our world’s seasons. I love the heat and hate the cold, but hate the clothing for the Spring/Summer and love the clothing for Autumn/Winter. Sounds weird doesn’t it? But about one of the only […]

Boat Shoes – Sebago Fall/Winter 2011

While I still consider myself a relatively small-time blogger, at least in terms of daily hits, I have recently had the pleasure of being invited to a couple of events/showcases for several shoe brands, one of which, as you can see above, was Sebago. It’s great because I always enjoy seeing shoes in the flesh (no surprise there) and also being part of the introduction to new brands/seasons/sub-lines etc. While Sebago is definitely not a […]

Today’s Favorites – Ronnie Fieg Collabo’s

There is no doubt that Ronnie Fieg, NYC-bred designer, has made many shoes WAY cooler than there previously were. And he did so simply by slightly modifying the style, color, shape etc. It just goes to show, how the little details can turn one thing from lame to cool. Time and time again, I have stressed those details!! While he has done countless remakes and collabo’s, here are just a few that I happen to […]

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 […]

My Shoes #5 – Sebago

Like I stated in my post, 4 Shoe Essentials For Autumn, everyone needs a solid boot for the fall/winter seasons. Considering that this whole Red Wing phenomenon is taking place and almost everything that is coming out was somehow inspired by it, I decided to go with the sleekest option. What’s great about the Fairhaven boot (pictured above) by Sebago is the fact that it has that workman’s boot appeal but it’s sole is not […]

Sebago’s Comeback

It truly is funny how everything reinvents itself and what was once the ‘in’ thing in popular culture 30-50 years ago becomes once again the ‘in’ thing in today’s modern culture. The two styles that frighten me about this constant reinvention, though, are the 80’s and men wearing bell-bottom’s with platform shoes. I cringe just thinking about the return of those atrocities. This act of reinvention is one of the reasons for Sebago’s current position […]

4 Shoe Essentials For Autumn

This summer has been quite interesting with it’s record highs and record lows and yet while it is still only the beginning of September, I am ready for autumn to come! I love the sun and being warm but I have never appreciated the simplicity of dressing in the summer. Instead, I have always loved seeing all of the intricate and uniquely layered outfits that are created in the autumn and winter seasons. That being, […]

Spring Time = Boat Shoes

Every year in the States, without fail, you see the boat shoes come out just as sure as the sun does. You would think that the wearing of boat shoes would be an American pastime considering the amount of men that break them out each year. And why wouldn’t they? The classic boat shoe serves many purposes. Not only are they used for boating activities but they have also been adopted into society as a […]
