The GQ Guide to Men’s Shoes


GQ just released their GQ Guide to Men’s Shoes, and honestly, I’m very glad that they did. Most guys don’t give a rat’s butt about their shoes, and this should be a good reminder on why they should take care of them, and how to do so.

While I love their thoughts and opinions, I do have something to say in regards to square-toe shoes. Square-toes are just as great-looking as their rounded-toe counterparts, and if I may say so, even better on certain types of attire. The primary thing to consider is to diversify your shoe collection so that you don’t JUST have square-toe shoes. This should be something that GQ should have used as a starting point. Rounded-toe shoes were great back in the day (i.e. cap-toes) and now they’re back in style again (like they never left). Slim-fit jeans and suits are the rave, but just like anything in fashion, these are just fashion trends. So why not have a diversified collection instead, utilizing both square and rounded-toe to compliment style and attire?

GQ Men's Guide to Shoes Loafers and slip-ons are great for any type of style, and I’m glad that GQ made that known. Style is about substance and not necessarily flash. With slip-ons and loafers, you get a great sense of flash that fits your own personal style, without losing substance and quality.

Black is always a great bet for the color, but even different shades of brown can become very classy and very stylish in a second.

I’m more of a “traditional modernist” when it comes to suits, so the only thing that I have to say about it is that I would never wear sneakers and boots with my suits. Well… maybe low-tops with the suits, but it has to look JUST RIGHT. I want it to “go” and not just to “match.”



Finally, sockless in suits are oftentimes made for those who are already well-known (i.e. George Clooney, Brad Pitt), than your average person. I suggest to keep your socks on, unless you’re living off in the Caribbean or somewhere working by the beach.

What are your thoughts?


Stylish Clothes for the “Mature” Man


First of all, let me say that the “mature” man doesn’t equate to the intellect, character, personality or hygiene of that person. As “mature” women are being called for those NOT petite or skinny, the “mature” man can be considered in the same way. Living in the south, there are more “mature” men here than anywhere else I have been.

UPS students help design Croc shoes


Say what????

Let me read that again: writes an article about how University of Puget Sound students help design Croc shoes (with the aid of a professor who happens to be A CROC TESTER ).  WHAT A BUNCH OF CROCK…

Crocs are THE worst looking shoes ever built.  Talk about fashion faux pas, these shoes are not even worth spending your hard-earned money on, not even to look at!

I’m sure I’m giving some publicity to this, but what in the world??

But then again, I forgot where they were writing it from.  Seattle’s got the cargo pants/wool socks and your choice of Tevas/Birkenstocks/Crocs look.  So maybe this isn’t too abnormal for them after all…
