Leather Soul Alden black shortwing blucher on Barrie

FWIW, assume the buyer already has a black NST blucher for more casual outfits...

I thought that I might be able to help, as I wear suits on most days. To be frank, I am not excited about any of those pairs with a suit, as they are all, for a lack of a more descriptive word, clunky. I would recommend something that has a single leather sole and perhaps a less rounded, and more modern shape. I have a penchant for the plaza last, but the grant and aberdeen lasts can look sharp, too. I have to stress again though that single leather soles are critical.

Now, if by "suit" you mean separates or a wool flannel suit, then the Barrie / Tremont and double sole factors are more valid. But, and maybe this is my idiosyncrasies speaking, but I cannot think of an outfit -outside of a black wool flannel suit, which I don't even think exist- where I would wear more substantial black shoes over some shade of brown.

PSA: Marble Suede City Moc just posted on Leffot's website.  Not my style, but I'm sure others will appreciate.

^ Anyone else see those and get the feeling Leffot ordered them for last spring/summer and just got them now?

I would love a shoe identical to that but in cigar, ravello, or #8 shell cordovan.

I try to make my "boring" black shoes have a little life with a Port/Starboard lace configuration. Also works for Christmastime too :)


fantastic idea:)

I've been waiting for these to pop up, and I don't need them (I'd like them now though lol) within the next few months, so that's why I jumped on them.

And on Van not Barrie.  The shape of the front of the shoe looks funny to me on Barrie, but maybe because I'm used to looking at my LHSs.

After seeing all the Leffot antiqued version this is a beautiful argument for the traditional edge!
