Teaming up again for a preppy-meets-street footwear collaboration, Mark McNairy is designing for Eastland’s Made in Maine collection. The collection has three new styles in a few different color options, with McNairy offering camo detailed options available for each style. Bold colors will be included for the added statement value, and along with the Ripley USA horsebit loafer style above in brown with camo, another favorite is the Falmouth USA boat option in canary yellow below:
The collection will be available in various retailers and online starting mid-March. See another color option of Falmouth USA style below, and the Mercer USA Chukka boot style:
Shopping the other day I couldn’t help but notice all the different non holiday-related sales going on. The retail gods must’ve learned it’s my bday this week and wanted to surprise me or something. In case you haven’t had a chance to take advantage yet, or are worried there’s nothing left, here are my favorite on sale boots, shoes and kicks that are perfect for the transition into the spring weather ahead:
Business travel is on the rise again and New York remains the top U.S. destination, so no better location for a business casual look that’s perfect for in the office or on the go—whether it be plane or commuting down the High Line.
If you’re traveling this summer for work, and your hosting office calls for a casual look, have some fun and ditch the khakis or the wingtips and cap-toes. A colorful boat shoe or moc can really put that extra pep in your step, while keeping it prep, and that is what this look was based around.
Business On Top, Party On The Bottom
Stamford, CT is technically a city, but even here in downtown you see how it is a mix of both city and suburb. I purposely left out major buildings like the Trump Tower or UBS when selecting the area, but nonetheless, the city is a perfect representation for the look I put together —mixing art flair with prep.
Adam is wearing a Orley silk-cotton blend tee with a coral and navy geometric pattern with ribbed hems. It stands out even more by pairing with basic tones from the beige H&M shorts and tan, suede oxfords from Eastland Shoe. We finalized the look with a pair of gold and tortoise Ray-Ban shades. A moped we found later was a perfect match to the tee as well, which you’ll see below.
