Every man needs a brogue in their wardrobe, in fact it is the quintessential shoe for a man today. Your working environment & personality can dictate what colour to have from conservative black and browns to outlandish blue suedes. As a general rule we say the darker the brogue the more formal the setting with black being perfect for the office. Not all brogues are the same however, you have got your traditional full brogues such as our Gabriel & Manaus to our cap-toe brogues such as the Araras.
Below is a great image for some inspiration of how to wear a brown suede brogue. Suede being quite an informal material means they can work great with anything from jeans to chinos. For a look like this we recommend our brown suede Tucano.

Soon approaching is the transition from winter to spring. With this in mind we have decided to look over some recent streetstyle photos during Pitti Uomo. Below are a few of our favourites trends we have seen and inspiration for how to style them!
This season we have started to see men dressing up desert boots with tailoring to give a laid back aesthetic to an outfit. We recommend our Colorado boot in brown suede to wear with navy or grey suiting
The loafer has become a lot more popular recently, originally thought as a casual shoe the loafer has now become a staple for tailored clothing. Wear with short trousers and turn-ups to show your shoe off! For a stylish sleek loafer we recommend our Osorio!

This season we presented our Autumn/Winter 14 collection at the 41st Couromoda show in Brazil. Couromoda is the largest footwear tradeshow for the Brazilian and South American markets, it is really well attended with an average of 39,000 visitors.
The Autumn/Winter 14 season is a really exciting one for us, we have a range of technological improvements and new designs that were really well received by our customers all over the world. New technology features throughout the range with the introduction of new soles such as the Bulldog and Munique. The Bulldog is an adventure spirited sole with a smart aesthetic that is built to last. The Munique is included in the Prime range which combines premium leathers and the flexible gel sole to create a sleek and comfortable sole.
Below are some images our the stand at Couromoda and a sneak peek of what is in store for AW14!
In the latest issue of Lancashire & North West magazine they recommended that a pair of brogues and a well cut suit are the staples for the sartorial gentleman of today. We agree, nothing looks better than a pair of hand crafted shoes paired with a tailored suit. The footwear featured is our beautiful Assis cap-toe. The Assis features hand crafted medallion detailing on the toe-cap and a stylish leather sole. You can find the Assis here, what’s better they are now in the sale making them £69!
Recently the London based menswear website Cult of Brand featured our AW13 collection. Cult of Brand is a great website run by a collection of fashion, sports, photography and music experts that bring their opinion to current news stories.
After testing out a pair of our Tucano brogues, the Editor of the Cult of Brand featured a review of the shoes as well as an overview of the AW13 collection. He remarked that they were comfortable and still stylish which is very hard to find on the market today. The Cult of Brand also analysed the history of the Chelsea boot, which is a key style for us this season – we have updated a classic style with a modern twist. You can view our full Chelsea boot collection here.

For the next post on our Shoes & Place series we look at the Brazilian city Manaus and the shoe it is named after. Our Manaus shoe is one of our best selling shoes and is a classic half brogue available in Cognac, Chestnut & Black. The Manaus is an elegant example of a brogue with intricate detailing hand-crafted by experts.
Manaus is a city in Brazil and the capital of the Amazonas state, which has a population of approximately 2.5 million. It is a very common holiday destination in Brazil and being located next to the Amazon rainforest there is an incredible variety of wildlife to be seen, therefore making it the perfect destination for nature enthusiasts. Manaus also boasts the Amazonas Opera house that seats 700 people. The opera house itself is made from Italian Marble, French glass and European bricks.
Manaus was only made into a city in 1848, it originated as the Fort of São José do Rio Negro in 1669 and was later made into a town in 1882 where it was given it’s official name of ‘Manaus’ which means “mother of the gods”, before it was then finally made into a city in 1848. The city of Manaus is located on Rio Negro for a few miles before it meets the Rio Solimões which then forms the Amazon River. Both of these rivers flow side by side for many miles without mixing until they finally come together to create the “Meeting of the Waters” and legend has it that they never mix.
