Happy New Year

'Its been a long time, I shouldnt have left shoe, without the right one to step to...'
(I just made that up in my head)


If the world is set to end with lashings of fire and brimstone, you may as well go in these!

Question Time

Anonymous asked:


What shoes shall I wear on New Years Eve. I am going to a club, does it matter?


Of course it matters. Doormen judge you on your shoes! It matters a whole lot. Without seeing your shoe/outfits options this is somewhat difficult so I will try and stick to basics.


Wearing Jeans: Black Jeans - Brown Shoes. Dark Indigo/Rinse Jeans: Tan Shoes (any of the smarter styles discussed in this blog will be suitable


Wearing Chinos/Khakis: Camel - Tan/Brown Oxfords, or Tasselled Loafers would be a winner


Wearing a suit: Kudos to you first and foremost, then throw on a single monkstrap and look fresh to death!


Wearing Joggers: Don't.


AND lest we forget all socks you have to consider... TAKE YOU PICK!


Play Hard,

My Golden Jubilee

So that last post was my 50th. And along with that milestone, the last two posts have seen us break 10,000 views from over 50 countries. Small change to some, but seeing that this was a figment of my imagination 9 months ago we've given birth to something special!



Thanks for reading, and all the feedback I've received via Facebook and Twitter for my labour of love!

Brogues Brothers

Stumbled across this pic today (thanks @ParkandBond) 



It's made me think of all the things I have which several other people also have. Like brown brogues. Does it matter? Nope! Why you ask? Well simply because you wear the shoe. The shoe does not wear you. So. Change the laces perhaps, lace them YOUR way, wear cool socks maybe? The possibilities are plentiful!

Fancy Footwork

The coolest pair of shoes ever made are Clarks Wallabees. Here's why: they are the only thing in common between the Wu-Tang Clan and my grandfather. It shows you what's so great - so postmodern - about hip-hop culture: it takes one thing that belongs in one context and makes it work in such a different one. If the Wu-Tang Clan showed up at my grandfather's house, he'd probably be scared. But then he'd think, "Hey, I've got those shoes." Wallabees never go out of style - you always need to have a pair lying around.
