A no-nonsense attitude. And some damn handsome footwear.

Which is why Club Monaco tapped McNairy as their latest collaborator in their ongoing “Makers and Muses” campaign. There are plenty of winners in the exclusive line of the shoes, but the real standouts are these pebble-grain tassel loafers. Here’s what else you need to know.

The Story: Club Monaco continues its #menswear crusade by tapping Mark McNairy, heralded as a footwear luminary in certain circles (for good reason). They make beautiful shoes together (exclusively available at seven Club Monaco stores and online). Your feet get handsomer.
