Hey, gidday mates! Exciting news on this chilly Autumnal Monday — my good friends Moti Ankari and Marcel Floruss (aka the bloggers behind The Metro Man and One Dapper Street), are launching their shoe line Ankari Floruss today. I was a little dubious when I first heard that they were working on a footwear collection, because from what I hear, shoes are the hardest piece of clothing to get right, but over the weekend I saw the fruits of their labor in the flesh, and I was genuinely impressed. There are seven pairs of shoes in the first collection, one for every day of the week, in two different color-ways each, spanning a tassel loafer, a derby, a wingtip, a boot, a Chelsea boot, a double monk and a sneaker. My favorite pair is the Chelsea boot in black, which I’m wearing here. It’s a steal at $295. Also, they’re throwing a party to launch the shoes tonight at Hotel Chantelle. 7pm. Jenny and I are DJing.

But it was at Dior Homme that I saw my next purchase; this is the shoe.Click to Continue!
Remember about a year and a bit ago I blogged about the Spanish footwear company Meermin? I picked up a pair of their pebble-grain leather long-wings online two weeks ago, and they were couriered to my apartment within four days of the purchase. No joke.Click to Continue!
Hey so after I wrote last week’s post about the five shoes you need this winter, I had a bunch of girls contact me and ask me to do one for them. I often get asked to talk more about womenswear and I probably should because I am finding myself far more interested in women’s clothing than men’s of late, largely due to the fact that I have a real life clotheshorse on hand who actually enjoys/tolerates being dragged around department stores and boutiques and forced to try on anything that catches my eye. It’s probably my favourite way toClick to Continue!
I spent eight hours outside at Coney Island on Saturday which left me quite literally numb with cold, and made me feel like a giant tool for wearing sneakers sans socks on the chilliest Fall day of all time. (It was four degrees… FOUR!) To compensate, yesterday I bought the above pair of Red Wing for J Crew boots, which I will wear with appropriate socks any time outside looks like it’s anything less than hot. So without further ado, here’s a list of the five pairs of shoes you need this Winter, starting with: 1. These Red Wing forClick to Continue!
