dgmodel Posted November 19 Report Share Posted November 19 I got this in an email thought maybe id share...Foot NotesIn the beginning, there was the traditional men's dress shoe. It wasn't very stylish. Then along came business casual, and the shoe industry tried to revamp men's shoes into stylish commodities. But while selection may have improved, some gents have yet to discover that clunky wing tips and narrow tassels are, well, ugly. So we went hunting for the perfect footwear for the aspiring stylish bloke. Prada may be the Nike of dress shoes, but Tod's loafers make boys-who-shop drool. Why the hysteria? The rubber-soled wonders work with even the fanciest of suits. (Tod's, 650 Madison Avenue, at 60th Street, 212-644-5945.) Continuing with the insanely comfortable, we like Barneys New York leather loafers and Banana Republic square-toe dress loafers, both of which look good with everything -- pants to jeans. (Barneys New York, 660 Madison Avenue, between 60th and 61st Streets, 212-826-8900. Banana Republic has locations all over the city, or find them online athttp://www.bananarepublic.com/browse/product/258/product_258202.htm?cs_catalog=BR%5FFall1%5F2002&cs_category=9004.)Prefer laces, Mr. Three-Piece? Sure, you could go with the tried-and-true Italians (Ferragamo and Gucci), but why not go French. Heschung's leather is just as excellent but doesn't shout out fashion victim. Functional. Timeless. (Available at Barneys New York, 660 Madison Avenue, between 60th and 61st Streets, 212-826-8900. See styles online at http://www.heschung.com, and find sale prices at http://www.raffaello-network.com/raffties.) What to wear with jeans? Hogan makes the gosh darn hottest suede and distressed-leather boots. (Available at Hogan, 134 Spring Street, between Wooster and Greene Streets, 212-343-7905.) And when the day is done, every good man deserves a stiff drink, a dog to bring him the paper, and the sassiest pair of slippers around.
