I am sad to say that the Band of Outsiders Sperry Topsider collaboration is officially discontinued after 5 seasons. I got the official word from Sperry Topsider themselves but if you haven't noticed there wasn't any Fall/Winter releases recently so treasure the ones that you do have. Hopefully BOO has something up their sleeves for next season I guess we have to wait for February to find out (@ NYFW)!
I stand firmly behind this line of shoes called CLAE because the quality and style is impeccable especially for the price! My favorite are pictured right above called the Chambers priced $115 @ Clae.com. They also make a very cool remake of the legendary Chelsea boot that was popular in the 70's with a little resurgence in the 90's and now back again in the 2010's! They come with a pop of bright blue color.
It's funny because I was just looking for an original avaitor shearling the other day because Bane from the new Dark Night Rises movie really inspired that look for me and then LV releases these lookbook images with the almost exact jacket that Bane was wearing! The olive quilted jacket with leather shoulders is a great looking jacket too! Kim Jones is that dude! I never seen any of these pieces before so they were quite a nice surprise!
I didn't like a lot of the menswear shows recently shown in Paris and Italy but this Hermes Spring/Summer 2013 Collection wasn't half bad! I'm kind of partial towards them already but these looks speak for themselves no matter how popular they are in the luxe world of high fashion. Minimalist clean crisp looks that I'm really into right now! No logos and a little bit of color blocking and you are good to go.
