In time for sockless season, Seize sur Vingt just unveiled a colorful new line of perforated bucks, seen here in a makeshift color wheel. We suggest the blue for the city, brown for the country and white for any horse races you may have in your future.
Now that it’s warm enough to make every square inch of exposed skin count, we thought we’d offer a few helpful tips on going sockless. As you can see above, it’s a pretty great look when executed properly—somewhere between an Italian painter and an unusually stylish surf bum—but the key to this particular move is finding the right shoe. That means boat shoes, moccasins, loafers, bucks, bluchers and anything canvas. By the same token, we’d stay away from sneakers, wing-tips and anything more formal. And remember: life’s too short to worry about a little sweat.
It’s been a pretty good week for shoes: first Florsheim and now this.
Red Brick Soul is the latest project from Mark McNairy, offering clay-colored soles (just like the name promises), resoleable welts and surprisingly colorful leathers. The loafers aren’t bad, but our favorite are these half-buck, half-wingtips. The soles keep things from getting too formal, and the overall line of the shoe is comfortable stocky.
Even better, like the Florsheims, Mr. McNairy manages to keep the whole line under $550…no small feat given they’re being shipped over from England.
