Walk This Way: Menswear Shoes To Sport This Fall

Calling all guys - is your wardrobe ready for Fall 2017? An easy way to transition between seasons is by switching out your footwear. Whether you are in the market to spruce up on a budget or splurge on an investment shoe, we are sharing our three favorite men's shoe styles for fall.

Worried about how you'll put it all together and rock the right shoe with the right ensemble? We've got you covered! We are keeping it simple and sharing what looks best with our favorite fall shoes.

Stay Stylish,
M, K & D


THE CHELSEA BOOT

"I love this style for men because you are getting a two-for-one deal." -Devon

Keep it sleek and contemporary this fall with the classic Chelsea Boot. This style is the perfect shoe for day and night. The elastic sides make this shoe super comfy for all day wear.

How To Wear It? Wear with your denim (cuffed or uncuffed) for a cool street style vibe. To easily elevate your look, pair these boots with a suit or slacks and blazer combo instead of your traditional dress shoes.


THE ESSENTIAL BROGUE 

"Nothing says Fall menswear like a richly colored leather brogue"-Kimberly

Maybe it's the Scotch-Irish roots of this shoe that makes it so easy to fall in love with. Originally designed as a tough outdoor shoe perfect for autumn/winter these shoes are made to last. It's handsome in a cognac color (think burnt caramel) or a deeper brown. We prefer a brogue that has a little detail but doesn't overpower this look or the wearer.

Style Tip: Try a few on, not all have the same degree of decorative perforations.

How To Wear It? Pair a brogue with navy or brown slacks and a crisp button-down with a sport coat. To dress down the look, wear these shoes with dark denim, a casual button-down, and a smart half-zip sweater.


THE CRISP WHITE SNEAKER

"I can't get enough of this this style! It's so easy to wear and can instantly elevate even the most casual outfit." - Megan

I know, I know... I've been talking about white sneakers for a few seasons now. But this style isn't going anywhere and is an absolute must-have for all men. White sneakers check all of the boxes: they are comfortable for all-day wear, can be worn day or night, and add instant style to any wardrobe.

Pro Tip: Keep your white sneakers clean by touching up weekly with a Mr. Clean Magic White Sponge.

How To Wear It? For a daytime look, throw these on with your favorite denim or track pants. To transition to evening, add a patterned sock, dark denim or slacks, and a leather moto jacket for an edgy/sleek look.

Trunk Club: Men's Summer Swimwear

The Best Beachwear This Summer

Summer is here (well, across any bridge out of our fine foggy city) and guys it's time to take stock of your swimwear. Yes--those pair of trunks may have served you well in college but its time for an upgrade. Here are a few tips for selecting the best match for your next beach day.

Keeping It Shady

While most swimwear stays in classic colors (blue and red) chose a shade that compliments your own natural coloring. If you burn easily chose a brighter shade or saturated color/print. If you tan quickly you can opt for a pastel.

Show A Little Leg

One of the biggest things in swimwear is finding a fit that works for you and what you do at the beach. If you are sporty, choose a trunk that can move and dries quickly. Additionally, if you are tall explore horizontal stripes, color blocking (bands of color), and longer inseams with pocket details. For shorter stature guys, keep it simple with small scale prints and inseams above the knee.

Men's Style: Summer Sport Coats

Mens-Blazers-Summer-Style

A lightweight blazer is a summer essential for men. It easily can dress up a pair of jeans (or even shorts) and will be a saving grace at more formal events when it is hot outside.

Picking the Perfect Summer Blazer

1. Budget: The first thing to do is determine your budgett. If you’re after that one piece that you’ll make the most out of, then it’s a good idea to invest a bit more. You’ll be able to use it all summer, every summer for years to come.

2. Fabrication: While linen is a great summer fabric, always remember that it will wrinkle almost instantly. So if you want to stay crisp all day, opt for a cotton/linen blend or 100% cotton fabrication.

3. Color: Pastels are always popular this time of year and an easy way to incorporate color into your wardrobe. If you prefer to stick with the basic, opts for a darker blue, grey or khaki blazer. You can always sneak some color in by choosing a style that has a fun lining (Ted Baker is great for this... his blazers always have a whimsical printed lining)
