Dear Fellow Loungers,
Thanks to Joe and Alex, I am inspired to share with you some of my favourite VC and shoe combinations:
Firstly, the elegant avant garde look - Corthay Jouvet in chocolate and gold patina matched with vintage 6272 in yellow gold:
A side profile reveals the beauty and style that Pierre Corthay is renown for:
Next, the classic look: John Lobb William in black calf with polished toecaps matched again with the 6272:
The side profile shows off those nice double monk straps and buckles!
Thirdly, a true vintage match made in heaven! My antique (and totally wearable) 1960s Florsheim Imperial Full Brogue Budapester Derbys in No. 8 Horween Shell Cordovan (that is horse butt cheeks for those not so well-acquainted with shoe leathers) with the same period VC!
Fourth, a sleek Italian interpretation of the one piece leather wholecut by Santoni Fatto a Mano in black calf with beautiful broguing detail...
Fifth, a contemporary look matching Church Methyr full strap jodphur boots in black calf with my Overseas Dual Time:
Finally the heirloom: a pair of booties with elastic sides in black leather and suede matched with a 50+ year old VC makes a wonderful legacy to pass onto my true pride and joy...
Look forward to some of your favourite combos....
From one VC and shoe lover to another...
