These tassel loafers from Septieme Largeur continue to be my favorites this summer, beautifully shaped, endlessly adaptable, breathable and growing ever more comfortable. Im surprised how well they fit, everything else I’ve worn sock-less has given me a blister at one point or another. Yet I found myself breaking into a run trying to catch a shot today without a second thought..
Stephen, summer details.
On staying cool in the summer:
In L.A the sad status quo is to go untucked (and un-tailored) but that said there are still guys who do it right. How did he do it? No secrets here, everything here fits, not too baggy or too tight. The length on the shirt is perfect to go un-tucked, keeping the upper and lower half’s proportional.
well maybe one secret,
as he said ” just grow up in Europe”

A year ago I bought these Russel Moccasins at the Stronghold, 220$ was allot for a casual non goodyear welted sole, but they had the most pleasing design of any casual summer shoe I had seen, and I needed an egress route from the world of flip flops. A year later I’m still happy with my choice, the styling of the shoe is less jarring than either a traditional boat shoe or moccasin. Thought It is still a clunky casual shoe, and nothing I could wear with a formal outfit, it is much more tolerable than the contrast sole and stitching of a boat shoe, or the feminine fopishness of moccasin, I’ve even gotten on board with the beef roll upper. But in the end, what sold me then and pleases me now is that they moose-hide sole can be re-soled by Russel Moccasin and the unparalleled comfort of a broken in soft constructed leather shoe in the summer. And big points as always for on old all American brand.
simply well done. I took some shots of this guy downtown and kicked myself later when they came out badly, luckily I ran into him again today.
