WTWW: Fiorentini + Baker G04 (Men’s Edition)

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. 

F+B G04

For this week’s What to Wear Wednesday we thought we would feature a boot for the guys. Men typically like to wear shoes, not boots. An oxford seems the safest option for most men. But the right boot is just as versatile as a shoe if you know how to play with materials and proportions. Pants that are narrower in cut and heavier in weight, easily can make the transition to an ankle boot. This Fiorentini and Baker G04 boot would be great with a pair of jeans, a sweatshirt and a quilted jacket. For a more casual/dress option, a heavy flannel trouser with a plaid shirt and blazer would be another winning combination. So gentleman, we encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and try wearing some boots!

Featured re-souL items:

> Fiorentini and Baker “G04” leather ankle boot, made in Italy.
> Men’s Stance “Alpaca” socks, wool blend. Imported.

6 Men’s Spring Street Trends

With the weather finally changing and warming up we thought we would take a look at some of the most popular spring trends for men on the street. Ready?

1) Printed Pants and 2) Bomber Jacket

Printed pants for men have been seen on the streets of Milan and New York. Floral, checks, geometics and camo to name a few. But how do you pull off that look without looking like you are wearing your girlfriend’s pants? Simple. Just pair them with a classic leather dress shoe, a tie and a spring bomber jacket. You will be pulling this look off confidently and nobody will think you are wearing her pants.

3) Blazer and 4) Polka Dots

How do you update your casual work attire? A blazer anyone? You will always look polished and put together when you wear this classic jacket. Wear a lightweight linen style with lots of texture and if you would really like to try something new, wear a double breasted version.

Another come back print for spring is polka dots. Bold or subtle you cannot go wrong with this timeless print. It’s still okay to wear your checks and plaids, but for a new update try wearing a dot version instead.

What to do for shoes?  Try wearing a suede buck with your new jacket and shirt, add some jeans and voilà you’ll be good to go!

5) Rolled Pant Hems and 6) No Socks

For a casual weekend look men have been seen rolling up their pants. This look works well with casual cotton twill pants or chinos. To complete the look wear a button down shirt and a casual sneaker with “no socks”. Not into not wearing socks?  Wear some invisible socks that make your feet look like you are not wearing any socks. Now you can put your shades on and walk to your neighborhood cafe for that afternoon coffee break.
