tretorns have arrived

my “blogger shoes” as paul would call them arrived yesterday.  i apologize for doubling up on the tretorn talk this week, but i figured my new kicks were worth the time.  if you’re on the fence about buying some, do it.  you’ll love them.  they’re light weight and comfortable.  my only knock on them would be that they run narrow (length runs true to size).  as you can see the navy color waxed canvas looks exceptional.  i wore them for 5 hours last night and didn’t want to take them off.  i think i’m going to order a white pair too.

all navy everything

two of my favorite items on earth are my barbour bedale and my bean boots.  when i was in nyc last weekend, i stopped by the barbour store in soho and fell in love with the navy bedale.  i don’t know if i’m sick of my green one or just wanting something new, but i really dig it.

i also like the navy waxed canvas bean boots from l.l. bean’s signature line.  yesterday i saw pics of them on a couple of different blogs i read and thought it might be fate telling me i needed some.

obviously navy is not a new color, but i’m starting to see it more as an option for products i like.  one might worry that navy doesn’t look good with jeans, but i disagree completely.  i think you can wear jeans with anything.  not scared of denim on denim either.

sperry 2011 fall corduroy chukka

i’m a sucker for sperry chukkas.  these are no exception.  the uppers are made of waxed canvas and corduroy with leather laces and a gum sole.  i’m glad a lot of brands are jumping on the waxed canvas train (see l.l. bean signature bean boot).  i’m pissed i have to wait until next fall to get my hands on these.  they’ll be worth the wait.
