Rokin Koi Mid Black Leather Shoes

May 1, 2009

Rokin gets it right with this Portuguese made mid-top leather shoe. The lace-up mid height boot pulls from the deck shoe movement but makes it all its own by angling the opening on top and brightening the stitching in white. An overall great look in a shoe.

May 1, 2009

The time has arrived. Prada previewed their Autumn/Winter 2009 collection recently, and we highlighted some some of the more traditional footwear looks. But we missed the stud arrays that is showing us. Check the studded details on shoes, boots, and shirts in these looks. Be careful when you hug your gentleman in this shirt.

Gaimo Lina Chukka Boot

May 1, 2009

The profile on this chukka from Gaimo Lina is a boxy one. The Spainish made shoe uses a sewn on sole made from jute – one of nature’s cheapest natural fibers according to Wikipedia. But that should not stop you from hitting up your proxy or hunting ‘em down domestic style.

May 1, 2009

The Trilby will never go out of style. Whether it’s rocked by Brit rockers or your girlfriend, the look of this hat’s curved shape remains a vital component in your hip lifestyle. Rep the K By Karl Lagerfeld Trilby and prepare for shine. Served with or without a cigarette.

Grenson ‘Oscar’ Suede Desert Boot

May 1, 2009

We do love suede shoes, but they’re not the best shoes for erratic weather. If you get caught in the rain with a pair on, you’re likely to ruin them – as this writer has learned first hand. Despite this, we still recommend these Grenson desert boots. The shade is somewhat out of the norm (as in it’s not dark brown or navy) and will mix perfectly with any number of trouser colours. Just remember to check there’s no clouds in the sky before you rock them.

Journal Standard Jersey Cardigan

May 1, 2009

Time for our obligatory ‘you can’t get this without the help of someone in Japan’ post. This Journal Standard is made from what seems to be the growing material of choice, Jersey. Material aside, we also like the fact that it has a collar that isn’t shawl (we still love shawl necks by the way, but we can’t have our wardrobe overrun by it) and the contrast piping.
