All Suede Lace Boots – Carmina

I really love an all suede lace boot. Especially in snuff, polo or tobacco suede. Yet it is something you do not often see and more often than not is something you have to order solely via Made to Order. It is quite rare that a shoemaker offers one as Ready to Wear. Not unheard of, but rare. And I never understood that as an all suede boot, for me, is so versatile, at least […]

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. […]

Spring Boots by Meermin

    It always makes me curious why people will pack away their “winter attire” come Spring/Summer. I guess it makes sense if you live in a place that is +30 C (+80F) for 5-6 months long but when you live in a city that has moderate to terrible weather, as I always have, it does not make sense. That being, I have never packed my boots away and don’t think it makes sense to […]

Today’s Favorites – Alden

While I have never been a huge fan of Alden for their dress shoes, due to their heaviness and chunkiness, I can say that they might possibly make the best dress/casual chukka boot. They have managed to create the perfect shape, something that can go well with some smart trousers but also look amazing with a nice pair of jeans. One might think that it is easy to create such a versatile shoe, but in […]

Today’s Favorites – Cliff Roberts

 Cliff Roberts is a freelance bespoke shoemaker in England, who apparently will produce a shoe for you at an extremely low cost. The catch though, is that you have to come up with your own last or just give him measurements of something that you are close to and he can make the shoe for you, kind of MTO style. But word is that he can make one for less than 500 GBP, which is […]

Today’s Favorites – Random Ostentatious Shoes

Shoes Above: George’s Shoes Above: Bottega Veneta Shoes Above: Billionaire Couture Shoes Above: Casely Hayford Shoes Above: George’s Shoes Above: Maison Martin Margiela Shoes Above: Martinisi I had all of these shoes just sitting in my ‘randoms’ picture folder and knew that if I did not show them soon, they might get lost in there forever. While I would not wear all of these, I do find all of them quite interesting, to say the […]

Today’s Favorites – Chelsea Boots

Boots Above: Vaneau by Vaneau Boots Above: Scarpe Di Bianco Boots Above: Helm Boots Above: Gaziano & Girling Boots Above: Edward Green I look at the rain and wind outside and I am thankful for the one pair of chelsea boots that I own but now I realize that I need at least a black pair, for sure, and maybe another in some unique color like navy or gray…..

Shoes Of The Day

Men’s Shoes 2010 has been the year of great collections, companies I normally don’t like actually putting out good product and also the year of more color. And that’s great!! One of those brands that I never really liked was J.Shoes. Yet, their new fall/winter season consists of a range of wingtip boots (pictured above and below), style called ‘Andrew,’ that I am particularly fond of. Hailing from Britain, J.Shoes used to be a brand […]
