In our final report from February’s MRket show in Vegas, I want to focus more on the popular shoe and people pictures. On top of that, I put together a little picture series of the bags men carry at MRket.
Most men today wear a nylon backpack if they need to carry things around, which is pretty sad because not only does it make you look like you just come from high school but you also hit others when you turn yourself on a bus or plane without even noticing it. Hence, (shoulder) bags are the way to go. Of course, I am not talking about the ugly nylon versions out there but the thoughtfully designed, rugged or elegant companions that are built to last.
The first example is made out of British Bridle leather, which is traditionally used for saddles and renowned for its tough wearing characteristics. A bag made of bridle leather should last decades.
This cowhide bag was interesting because the handle was cut out of one piece.
The popular nylon bag.
This is quite big an only needed if you haul larger items around.
A beautiful modified monk with w dark burnished toe. Would you want to own this shoe?!
All yellow is certainly bright.
I have never seen a shoe with its weight imprinted.
Interesting shoe, though the shiny faux croc is just not my cup of tea.
I like the contrast color in the brogues.
This is a very unusual color combination though I think it works rather well.
This is a very special look for two reasons. First, not many people wear purple chalk stripe suits and second, even fewer wear Balthus tie knot, which is the biggest knot of all and was named after the artist Balthus, who popularized it.
A fine example of unique style
And two examples of how not to wear suits.
