For this week’s post, I decided to use a male subject to try and capture a little more versatility within my articles. I realized that some guys are stylish as well and can earn the title of a Fashionisto. I spotted this Fashionisto dressed in grey corduroys, a light blue button-down and some suede boots. Looking cool and casual, I knew he was my next subject!
The first thing I noticed about his outfit were his shoes. Usually, I am used to seeing men sporting classic boat shoes by a popular brand like Sperry Top-Siders or loving their custom made shoes by Nike. You can probably guess that I was very excited to find a man wearing something different!
This look would have been great with a pair of Sperry Top-Siders or even a nice dress shoe, but the rugged, suede boot gives the ensemble a more every day look. The rolled up sleeves and untucked shirt enhance the casual feel of this outfit. This Fashionisto told me that he has had this pair of shoes for ages. He continued by saying that they look and feel even better than when he first purchased them. This shoe is perfect for walking around campus, while making a subtle fashion statement.
When I discovered that these specific boots were from J.Crew, I immediately hunted them down and realized that these shoes are actually unisex. Women can enjoy their simple styling and comfort as well. To get these boots, try the Classic McAlister Boot sold by J.Crew. For a similar style but different material, purchase this leather pair by Clarks. Lastly, if you’re not looking to splurge, try these shoes by Robert Wayne Blake.
