I don’t really dress as bold as I used to. Not sure if it’s laziness, that I am getting older and just don’t care anymore about much other than making my thought process less stressful so just resort to simple colors or the fact that my tastes are actually changing. I think the latter is probably the least likely as I still appreciate seeing men go bold, like our good friend Sanjay here of @windowstomysole on IG. Most likely it’s a combination of the first two as every now and then I make an effort and go colorful and bold and feel good about it. But I like doing that when wearing suits and I really just don’t break those out anymore.

I have always been a sucker for Blackwatch tartan and pairing green and blue, so naturally was attracted to this photo when I saw it. I love everything in this outfit and think that green suede loafers are just about one of my favorite things. Happy to see others take part in that idea and see that Baudoin & Lange made a particularly beautiful shade of green suede in their classic loafer. A great choice indeed. Well done Sanjay!

A beautiful weekend to all!

  1. Hi, Justin
    We used to “meet” at AskAndy foruns maybe a decade ago, when you were still not a successful business man that you are now (I congratulate you with such a great pleasure for that!), but you probably forgot about it (I use to be known as “themanfromlisbon).
    I always read your posts and take some your advices to help choose some of my shoes (and some times I use your shop to buy shine products), and what brought me here this day were this loafers. I love Belgian loafers of Baudoin (also those of Rubinacci and some from Superglamorous). But this special ones are fantastic.
    Unfortunately, here in Portugal nobody sells it, and for some occasions I’ve been almost buying a pair by the net from one of the brands I mentioned. But, helps, I have a problem that always stop me: I wear UK7 (Crockett&Jones size, because it’s the brand I use the most), though my true size would be 6,5. However, 6,5 is too tight to my foot and I feel more comfortable with 7. However, as this kind of shoe is made of a very smooth leather, I think that, after 2 or 3 days of using it, a 7 would became a 7,5 and would look awful in my feet. In the other hand, I’m afraid 6,5 would be hurting my feet for a long time, and I would give up using it.
    So, I would like you could give me your opinion about this issue.

    Best regards from Lisbon, and once more, I congratulate you for you success.
    Wish you the best of luck with it.
