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 […]

My Shoes #21 – Sperry #1

† On that note of American’s favorite summer shoe and Sperry’s, I just recently got back one of my favorite shoes of all time. For me, the navy blue and white classic Sperry boat shoe is universal! I can wear them with anything except a suit and the outfit will coordinate. And to prove just that, I decided to dress them up a little bit for this party that I want to and create an […]

Driving Loafers – Europe’s Summer Shoe

Depending on where you live in this world, there is always a shoe that acts as one’s ‘go-to’ model once the hot days of spring and summer start to show their face. In tropical places you have the flip-flop, in the States you have the boat shoe, and in Europe you have espadrilles and even better yet, the driving loafer. But the greatest thing about driving loafers, is that if you have the right model […]

Today’s Favorites – Braided Shoes By Sutor Mantellassi

When it comes to braided shoes, I have always been really hit or miss with them, which is how I perceive most people to also be. It seems that I either really like them or really hate them. So, as you can imagine, these one’s here by Sutor Mantellassi are one of the few that I actually appreciate. The fact that the braid is relatively small and that they are a plain toe allows me […]

My Shoes #20 – To Boot New York

During my time at Nordstrom, I acquired a lot of To Boot New York shoes and this was one of the first models that I got, and definitely my favorite. It is just such a great summer shoe and it looks good with jeans but can also be dressed up in a casual sort of way. The toe, while it was already darkened from the get-go, was probably the first burnish that I ever actually […]

Today’s Favorites – Del Toro Slippers

As the sun comes out, so do all of the interesting shoes that involve going sock-less, and one of those happens to be the Prince Albert slipper. While you tend to find that most traditional/historical British shoes companies will offer their own take on the Prince Albert slipper, which will run you a pretty penny right out of your pocket, least expected is the maker of these models, Del Toro. For those that did not […]

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 […]

Del Toro Shoes

There are always misconceptions in fashion where it is said that certain articles of clothing/shoes/accessories should or should not be worn, or should only be worn here or there or then and not now. This is all bullshit!! You should wear what the hell you want, when you want and however you want to so long as you do it well, look presentable and maintain confidence. Rules are meant to be broken. Look at how […]
