Now that we’re on the cusp of white-shoe weather, we couldn’t resist a quick survey of this season’s options. Suede bucks are still the gold standard, but if they seem a bit too stodgy…there’s always corduroy.

This pair comes from Florsheim by Duckie Brown, a reliable source for traddish twists. They’ll work any time you’d try out the bucks—think warm weather and khakis—but they’re just offbeat enough to warrant a second look. More importantly, the charming smudges that give your bucks so much personality will end up as diagonal stripes here, so by August they’ll have quite a signature on them.
