For the life of me, I still cannot understand why I don’t see more gentlemen wearing burgundy shoes. Come to think of it, I can’t seem to recall, ever since I have been in this country (England), having seen someone wearing burgundy shoes with a suit, and almost, burgundy shoes period. It’s such a lovely color that compliments blue better than any other color (even brown), yet it would appear that not many other people share that same sentiment. It could also very well be that English shoemakers (from what I have seen) don’t really offer that many shoes in the burgundy color. Sure they may have one or two out of their entire collection, but if you don’t happen to like the model that the burgundy shoe comes in, you aren’t going to buy it, are you? It’s literally like people have just been conditioned to make black shoes and wear them, with everything they have. Of course you have the rebellious ones that wear brown, but rare are the men who put on a burgundy shoe. Well, for now I guess that I will stand alone, and hope that with the introduction of my shoe line, and my burgundy wholecut that will be offered, more people will see that it’s a lovely color that compliments, beautifully, a navy suit!
