an exercise in minimalism. no patterns, black leathers, no peacocking (which i am known to do here and there.) and i can dig it. growing up, one post at a time. somebody tell my mom, oh wait, i will, speed dial, 1. mommas boy started a blog and shes proud of me.
gonna do a couple laps at the park later if anyone wants to eat my dust.
happy hump day.
-sometimes simplicity is all you need.
I rarely post WIWT photos. The ones I do post tend to be ones shot and posted in the style that I would do if I did. To me personally. This look matched with the background look great. I personally like how Tumblr allows you to curate the way images are displayed when uploaded. To me this is the best combination in my opinion. It gives followers more to love about your style.
Brown Suede Shoes for Autumn
While I think brown suede shoes are great for every season (perhaps except winter), they’re particularly fitting for autumn. The soft, warm looking texture fits in well with the season’s mood and looks great against the brown corduroys, gray flannel trousers, and olive moleskins that should be in your standard Fall rotation.
If you don’t already have a pair, consider getting something nice for this Fall. If you can afford to splurge, I recommend Crockett & Jones’ Belgrave in polo brown calf suede. It’s a pretty expensive shoe, but I think one of the most handsome ones you can buy. For something more affordable, check out this Charles Tyrwhitt suede chukka (which is on sale right now), Loake’s suede Eton loafer, and Rancourt’s suede camp mocs. For something a bit cheaper than those, there’s Florsheim’s Haviland longwing. I’m not that crazy about Florsheim, but they’re one of the cheapest Goodyear welted shoes on the market. Use the code NewFW11 at checkout and you’ll get 10% off as well as free shipping (thanks to The Silentist for the tip).
Lastly, it’s not released yet, but the guys at Run of the Mill are coming out with a suede double monkstrap on a Danite sole. The price will be around $450 and it should be released in a month or so.
I don’t often reblog putthison for a few reasons. 1. Their post are always very long, the same with Derek’s blog. 2. I assume that most of the people who follow me for my menswear post already follow them. However these are good tips for people who don’t just follow me for menswear.
