By now you proper fashion-loving men have jumped on the colourful kicks bandwagon; you jumped on line to ensure you bought the most colourful/ugly sneakers by a design house for $500+ before the sold out. Guess what? It’s over. As, Ms. Klum would remind you: “In fashion, one day you’re in and the next you are out.” Colourful sneaks are over, it’s all about classic white now.
Well, not literally. But it is okay to cop some shoes from the ladies side of Sully Wong. Trust me, they are worth the risk of getting caught.
If you recall one of my previous posts about Pharrell and his style, he likes to find great shoes in the women’s department. Here’s your chance to learn from Pharrell and get your hands on some Sully Wong x Amanda Lew Kee . The SWALK 01 Womens HI 1, as the shoe is known, features a black premium-raw cut leather upper and a premium Japanese leather lined denim interior. The SWALK 01 Womens HI 1 is slick, modern perfection. Just don’t let them all get bought out by the ladies. Although, you will probably never look as good as ALK in them.
Available October 9th at select retailers and online at SullyWong.com.
Thanks to Balmain, the moto pant has become a staple in menswear but be warned they are a lot of bad ones out there. It is important that they aren’t a a total Balmain rip-off (if you can’t afford the real don’t buy a knock off), nor ones that are leggings. Enter the black moto from STAMPD. Available now.
If you don’t know by now Wings + Horns is in its tenth year and as part of that celebration they have teamed up with bootmaker Danner to create a rugged boot. The Mountain Light boot comes in a completely blacked-out colorway and a Gore-Tex liner. This is a classic boot and yes you should buy it. No, you don’t have to go climb mountains in them.Of course, they are over $450 but what did you expect from me?
As un-Canadian as this sounds, sometimes (well most times) Moncler does it better than Canada Goose. And this season it’s no different. Besides the fact the brand has enlisted the likes of Thom Browne to design some of their collections, their French approach to design and fashion lends to more fashion forward winter wear. Their secret – well tailored outerwear and layering for the cold. Wait a minute isn’t that what our mother’s told us to do? Unless you live on the Tundra it doesn’t get cold enough for an Arctic Expedition graded winter coat.
Psst the ladies (and boys) will much prefer you in one of these. Trust me.
And the boots are to die for, literally if I find you out in Muskoka hiking in them I may just have to shank you for them.
Everything Tom Ford becomes a trend. Everything. But here’s a secret – everything Tom Ford does relies on bringing back menswear classics. Enter the denim western shirt he showed for SS2015. Now there is no need to wait for SS2015 to rock this classic. Get one now – I always have two in my closet – one in dark denim and one worn in.
Congratulations you finally caught onto the varsity jacket trend and it’s over. You should have known better than to try to recapture your college years. This is why it is sometimes best to stick to classic jackets – ie the Bomber never goes out of style. These bombers are anything but boring.
John Elliott + Co has been a long time favourite of mine so I am happy that this GQ x GAPcollab will get them more exposure but also sad everyone will start rocking the brand’s laid back urban luxury looks. Oh well, I can’t win them all. Or can I? (Check out my other fav: En Noir) Items will be available in store on Sept 30th but hurry they will sell out fast.
