Men’s Fall Essentials: The Lace-Up Boot

Men's Fall Essentials: The Lace-Up Boot

This Fall there are plenty of  men’s trends that are worth a look, but if we were to pick one shoe to add to a gentleman’s closet, it would have to be the lace-up boot.  A timeless staple that can be dressed up or down, this silhouette is a must-have for any guy’s wardrobe.  We have paired them with 3 different key menswear looks to show the versatility of this classic style.

1.  The Camel Overcoat – Sharp and versatile, a classic camel coat is timeless. What better way to accessorize your coat than with a pair of Wolverine “Addison” boots.  The cognac brown color is rich and it can make a wool suit look a little bit more relaxed.

2. The Quilted Jacket – Puffer coats have been on the scene for a few seasons, but its sleeker cousin is the right jacket to wear for those crisp fall days.  Throw it over your favorite heavy sweater or blazer for extra warmth and  wear it with your favorite jeans. To finish the look we like the “Bolter” boot by Bed Stu, an urban work boot that’s big on style and very practical.

3. Gray on Gray Layering – A fresher way of layering than wearing all black, the gray on gray color scheme works well because of the different textures and patterns. Notice the gray herringbone tweed over the gray melange sport coat and fleece shirt? Of course to finish this look you need a pair of boots from MOMA. This boot is rugged and polished at the same time and subtle antiquing of the leather gives them timeless style.

So what are you guys thinking? Ready to move away from zippers yet?

What do I wear with: Bed Stu Bonnie?

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we feature the Bed Stu Bonnie.

What to Wear With: Bed Stu Bonnie

The Bed Stu “Bonnie” lace-up boot will ease you nicely into early springtime, especially if you’re not quite ready to put the boots away. Its ankle height is extremely versatile, and just as flattering paired with skinnies as it is your new spring dress.  The antiqued light brown color goes nicely with earthy neutrals such as tan, warm grey and coral. Wear it with a gauzy peasant paisley top for a bohemian look or for a simpler approach pair it with solids like black and whites.
