Blood not included - but encouraged

Blood not included - but encouraged

Sperrys. Why worry about summer fashion for 2009, with 2010 right around the corner and nothing but the worst economic recession in 80 years looming in between? Besides, when it comes to the best men’s shoes, always go for the classics. Most men’s formal shoes can be used for a lifetime: you take care of them, you resole them, you only wear them when appropriate. Spending $300 on a pair of formal black cap toes or brown leather oxfords makes sense if you take care of them. They’re an investment.

On the other hand, your casual shoes can take a real beating: you wear them out dranking at night, trudge around the grass for outdoor summer events during the day, take them to the beach, toss them into weekend bags, and on and on.  Don’t let this discourage you. Your fashion summer is right around the corner, and you can do it for a reasonable price. (Read on …)

Like dating: fill them every night and keep them shapely

Same advice for shoes and ladies: fill them every night and keep them shapely

Handsome Recommends: Rochester Shoe Trees. Men’s style is a head-to-toe affair, and men’s shoes are one of the most stylish, classic, and important investments you can make. It can be a hard investment to make – good shoes are expensive – and since men are children until the day they die they never really forget when they were growing up and needed a new pair of shoes every four months from age 12 until age whenever they got off their asses and became men.

Once you buy in, it’s important to protect that investment. Gentlemen, with all the shuffling about around the office, to lunch, to your transportation of choice, eating and what not, you inevitably start to sweat inside your nice shoes, break creases inside your nice shoes, and scuff your nice shoes. I know what you’re thinking – (Read on …)

Stay crisp and fresh - collar stays

Stay crisp and fresh - collar stays

Handsome Recommends: Stayclip collar stays. You know those little plastic pieces that dress shirts come with inside the collars?
