Bespoken Word – Shoe Game: A Reintroduction To Quality

Keep your sartorial ensemble from falling apart with the best in men's classic footwear.

Walk onto the sales floor and you may actually be overwhelmed when it comes to picking out a new pair of shoes. There seems to be and endless selection and those entering the shoe game continue to pop up. Like with anything else, quality always has a way of standing out. This week I selected three picks in which the brands seemed to find the right blend between a classical and modern perspective.

Maison Corthay’s Blue Steel

I recently met Pierre Corthay, French Master of Art and founder of Maison Corthay. I wanted to know more about the philosophy and driving force behind the brand and Pierre quickly obliged. “The obsession and goal is to find the best component, best color, best quality of fabrication,” he offered.

A Paragon of Modern Elegance

“Our style is very traditional, very classical with a twist such as the piping and detail of stitching. We make something classic that is wearable.” Corthay is taking a classic shoes and infusing them with details that make them relevant while staying away from being trendy.

The Salvatore Ferragamo Loafer – A True Footwear Legend 

When it comes to classic loafers, Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo are among those leading the way. In terms of timeless elegance the Ferragamo Giordano Calfskin Loafer, the Twirl Loafer, and Master Loafer are examples of classics that never go out of style. Maintain a timeless feel and work both with a bespoke suit of denim jeans.

Masculine Americana at its Finest

While the Saks Fifth Avenue Collection is relatively new, it proves in order to break the rules, one must master them first. The Saks Mixed-Media Lace-Up Boots is a winter piece that combines Italian craftsmanship and an American attitude. Simple in presentation and unapologetically strong in style.

The Saks Fifth Avenue Collection Suede Drivers are the Perfect Non-Formal Option

Hardy Ames once said ” It is totally impossible to be well-dressed in cheap shoes.” Corthay, Salvatore Ferragamo and Saks Fifth Avenue Collection are among a few that will make sure you’re always one step closer to being impeccably well dressed.

Drinks on the House

There were drinks galore and the guests in attendance were naturally dressed to the nines. It made Megan and Patrick’s job a little difficult, amongst a sea of men radiating panache – who exactly to single out as a someone who may give the styling challenge a good go?

A Peek at the Dapper Guest List

The gambit: Style one of the new collection’s amazing sport coats with anything else in the Polo Ralph Lauren boutique; Patrick and Megan judge the styles and crown a winner, who gets to walk out with the entire head-to-toe ensemble as their prize. Not too shabby.

The Classic Cocktails on Hand Reflected the Collection’s Sartorial Americana Essence

“The new sport coat silhouette is more modern and slimmer; the sleeves sit a bit shorter,” says Megan Collins. “It’s a piece for a man who maybe has tried Ralph Lauren in the past and thought it was a piece that was more for their dad. This silhouette is for that younger guy. It’s a new generation sport coat. It dresses up any outfit. You can treat it a little less preciously. It goes with so many things.”

Patrick and Megan with the Winner of the Art of the Sport Coat Styling Challenge

Patrick Janelle is in agreement. “My favorite sport coats in this collection are the unstructured pieces,” he told SaksPOV at the event. “They feel super comfortable and they’re casual enough that I feel I can throw it on on a Saturday morning, but it’s classic enough that I can take it with me to a meeting. Because of the prints and textures you definitely have a good sense of classic style, but with the updated silhouette it never makes you feel stuffy.”
