Whilst researching the Don’t Fight The Blues Part I and Part II I stumbled upon a range of absolutely amazing men’s shoes, the kind of beautifully detailed and lovingly made shoes that makes me scorn all men who persist with crap shoes (there’s no excuse!), whilst at the same time making me wish for man-size feet so I can wear them. I dug a little further and was so excited to discover they are the work of my good friend Michael Hockey. I always knew he was a supremely talented fellow (and funny as hell I’ll have you know) but I honestly was taken aback with the level of detail and craftsmanship of his range, in particular these lace up boots from his capsule range for international non-profit organisation amFAR (The Foundation for Aids Research). Good cause and good style! Winning.
Once upon a time as a rookie fashion buyer I used to try and get all crazy with colours for the men’s section of the shop, you know, so everything wouldn’t be blue. Silly rookie me. There’s no point trying to fight the blues when it comes men’s clothing and what not. Now I am of the school of thought that the more blue in a man’s wardrobe, the better.
This here is a little mood-board of manly casualness in many blue hues…perfect garb for sunny weekends spent being a man-about-town, strolling around looking awesome, laid back and well-dressed (I just described the perfect guy, yes?).
