For those of you who grew up in a later era (or, perhaps, haven't fully caught up with the rest of Canadian society since those heady days), let me remind you why critics urged guys to burn their tight denim and labelled men who wore the style as less-than: skinny jeans were feminine, and feminine -- for guys -- means "bad." Substitute any other vaguely feminine trend, from floral prints to makeup for men, and it's the same story. But we've made so much progress since then, right?
The footwear is very high quality featuring Goodyear welting, allowing for the soles to be removed and replaced over the years, while also being incredibly weather resistant. The whole grain leathers are soft and supple. The interior lining is green, the colour of balance, harmony and (let's face it) money, which makes sense given that each style is inspired by an entrepreneur Milton and Brigitte admire.
I consider throwing on the same T-shirt and jeans or suit and tie -- day in, day out -- a missed opportunity to improve your productivity before you head into the workplace. That bit of mental energy and time you may devote to finding something new to wear every morning can very well pay off dividends, I find. It's meditation by menswear.
