To all of my male readers or what is left of you, my sincerest of apologies for not giving you enough content. After so many years in the menswear biz, it is just so exciting for me to have a chance to write about all of the clothes and accessories that I want to wear for a change. That said, I still love everything about Men's Fashion and never want to sever my bond with it, so I am seeking out great partnerships that keep the content coming... It is with great pleasure that I can bring you some fab commentary from my newest blog partner, Fashion As A 2nd Language, penned by uber luxury menswear editor, Mark Grischke. Mark spent many years creating some of the most beautiful and smart, luxury-driven content for Forbes/Forbes Life, before deciding to go on his own. His newest passion comes from his pure love of fashion, art direction and of course the written word, so I hope you will join me in supporting him.
I will be posting excerpts from the stories that resonate most for me, so male readers rejoice...I have not left you behind. The first column is about custom footwear and legendary shoemaker, Silvano Lattanzi...enjoy!
Shoe Love: Pas de deux
Your shoes speak volumes about you, but a fine, custom-made pair does so in the hushed tones of a tete-a-tete. In fact, the whole process is very sexy: having your feet carefully measured; discussing the curves of an arch; poring over piles of glossy leather swatches.
