This J.M. Weston 3 eyelet derby is making its debut on the blog. I’m not really sure why I haven’t posted it before now. It’s a very popular style at Leffot not just because of it’s sleek lines and plain almost boot looking toe, it’s also a very comfortable fitting shoe. A tapered toe but generous across the ball.
This is another style from the Conti line designed by Michel Perry for J.M. Weston.
J.M. Weston model 437 also available in Brown
I’ve written recently about men buying shoes for their birthdays, well there is another occasion that ranks right up there and that of course is the wedding. Here is a list of shoes that were purchased to be worn to weddings either by the grooms or the guests.
Artioli – 06M090 in Black Calf & Lama
Gaziano & Girling – Westbury in Dark Oak
J.M. Weston-436 in Black Calf
Edward Green – Perth in Burnt Pine
Gaziano & Girling – Mitchell in Black Calf
Church’s – Diplomat in Brown Nevada Calf
Church’s – Consul in Black Calf
While I’m on the subject it’s interesting that in every case the grooms chose the brown shoes and the guests chose the black shoes. This suggests to me that men do not want to appear under dressed at another’s important social event (which is a good thing) and that more men are taking a fresh and less formal approach to their own weddings (also a good thing). And isn’t brown the new black anyway?
