Get a head start on fall menswear, working from the bottom up.
The first look at fall footwear is here and we're liking the non-trends. Traditionally, fall is a more subdued season–not as wild in color or embellishments as the others. You'll see a lot of classic leathers and suedes in handsome shades of brown, black, and slate. As is the case with great suiting, it's the subtle play in texture, shape, and detail that make these shoes modern and interesting.
