    , never ceases to amaze me for their design brilliance. I won’t lie and say that I love every intricate design that they make, but I can appreciate the majority of them and love a great many, such as this new amazing penny loafer with contrasted piping. This loafer, while nothing grou...

    And then the second picture. I mean the shoe is not overly bad. It’s not my style at all and the subject ‘chunky derbies’ is not overly horrible but to say that those shoes are acceptable with suits just blew my mind. I mean, sure if you like the Thom Browne look which to me is quite ...

    I am not sure how popular the classic cap toe double monk is these days as it has been a trend now for longer than trends usually last, but when I saw this picture and all of the options, I was taken back to the idea of how nice a double monk can be, especially when you get to see in ...

    Seeing vintage shoes is always a treat for me as it represents a time where our traditional oxford (the way in which we see it today) was relatively new and therefore shoemakers then were among the first to create many of the styles that you see today, like these spectators. While not...

    I really don’t know a ton about Axel Arigato but I know that they have a crazy following on IG, are a Swedish brand and make some very cool trainers and some interesting wholecut tassel loafers. And not for the ridiculous prices that some other trainer companies are charging. They are...
