Vogue, Don’t Walk!

Though i’ve renounced my “sneakerheadism” (i’m still on Niketalk) there still remains some residue. Of course, no one can just go without a good pair of sneakers so i bring to you my ‘go-to’ brand these days, True Ambition. Solid material blends, complimenting colorways, and a sophisticated structure. These shoes haven’t really even blown up yet, which is why the La Verdad is only $85 ($75 for the lowtops.) i don’t usually give out brands that i like, so don’t say i’ve never put you on something, lol! Guess its the sneakerhead in me. check their newly updated collection here.

bontoni2i’m not too fond of fashion trends so i don’t know when the wingtip ever went out of style to have to make a re-appearance, but the classic shoe in my opinion is a fashion staple along with the cashmere cardigan. This hand-made, wingtip is brought to you by Bontoni, an Italian shoemaker, owned and operated by Lewis S. Cutillo and Franco Gazzani has blossomed in the last 5years making itself an elite brand of shoe. “For the gentlemen who prefers to wear his individuality somewhere other than his sleeve.” Sometimes, you just have to wear these with no socks. Sidenote: if you have to ask the price… it won’t be nice!

hol-jet-moc-linen-alligator-trimSoon to be an hmb staple, Harrys of London’s linen Jet Moc with Alligator trim, is a Jetsetter’s essential. A few things i’ve learned to have while jetsetting is a duffel bag (hence the name hmb) with selected goodies, an unstructured blazer for all intensive purposes, a nice polo shirt (preferably Lacoste or RL Polo), some nice slacks, i prefer the light khaki (wrinkle free), and now the HOL mocassin slides. Because man do your feet hurt walking form terminal to terminal! These won’t run you much ($235 lol) for what you’ll get out of them. They’re a true investment for a true Jetsetter!

i’m a firm believer in every fashionably inclined person having atleast one piece of apparel that either: 1) standouts, pushes the envelope, is eclectic, just plain different, or that no one else would even bother purchasing or attempt to try to make work. And Kiroic has made that article of fashionry for me. I love this Hi-top Shlandal (Shoe – Sandal) especially for the summer time in Los Angeles. The thong sandal is nice but it can hurt and leave unsitely marks between the toes. Also, i better not see anyone dawning a pair of Chincletas (spell check please). i don’t care how much money you make. This shlandal has both ankle support, style, and gives those dawgs much needed air circulation to breathe after getting off that 14hour flight from Munich, lol! No price on these, but who cares. You either cop ’em or you don’t!! Sidenote: Kiroic has an assortment of styles and colorways too…

    Ok, the sneakers are nice. The wingtip went outta style after the 60s, but are still considered classy to me. However, I will change my mind if they’re not worn with socks! The linen loafer is NOT appealing to me, but I’m just 1 person. The YSL shoes are a MUST have in MY closet!! I need them in all colors: black patent, purple patent, white leather, red patent, brown leather, and heat patent. Lastly, that shoe/sandal monstrosity needs to be destroyed ON SIGHT! All in all, I can’t knock your eye for fashion or your desire to push the envelope. Just no shlandals, PLEASE!

    The “Uncle Brother Throwbacks” do keep a-rising from the ashes. Knew Mrs. Siner would love the high rises. Think I’ll jest stand over there and observe.
