Spring 2019: Men’s Shoe Guide

spring shoe guide for men

As we head into spring, you’ll require a slight change in your footwear wardrobe to better suit the weather. It starts making less sense to put on those suede Chelsea boots, and more sense to wear other styles.

Anatomic & Co has put together a spring shoe guide for men, looking at some of the favourite styles for the 2019 season.

Men’s Trainers

mens spring 2019 shoes

Every man should own a pair of good, smart casual trainers. Trainers are an all-year-round style and have the added benefit of being a timeless menswear staple. In spring 2019, you can look at pairing your leather trainers with a t-shirt and tailored jeans. Now days, trainers are also acceptable with a suit – just make sure you go with a more minimalist trainer and that your trousers are tailored to sit just above your ankle.

Our trainer style for spring 2019: Classico Touch Anil or Havana

Men’s Slip On Shoes

mens spring 2019 shoes

Combining laid-back comfort without sacrificing any style, men’s slip on shoes will see you through the spring and summer months. Slip on shoes or loafers for men range from simple and classy to definitive statement pieces. You can wear your loafers with suits for formal settings or with rolled up jeans for a more casual look. They even work great with short trousers and an Oxford shirt.

Men’s Chukka Boots

mens spring 2019 shoes

If you’re not looking forward to putting away the boots, there’s good news for you. Chukka boots are the go-to boot for when the weather starts to get warmer – they were originally created for the British Army fighting in hot climates. These men’s boots will carry you through spring and summer, and are available in different colours and materials. If you are after a more versatile style, opt for brown or sand shades, but don’t be afraid to go for a more dynamic colour.

Our Chukka boot style for spring 2019: Colorado Navy, Pinhao or Brown

Men’s Brogues

mens spring 2019 shoes

No matter the time of year, you’ll always need a pair of smart dress shoes to fall back on – and we recommend the stylish brogue. Brogues are often worn with a suit, giving the wearer a polished, smart look. Black brogues are seen as an acceptable business shoe, while brown tones provide a more relaxed look and two tone coloured leathers an edgy alternative. For spring 2019, we suggest opting for a brogue that works with both smart and casual outfits to create a clean, sophisticated finish.

Our brogue style for spring 2019: The Tucano (available in a variety of styles)

mens spring 2019 shoes

On that note:

While putting away our winter boots for the next few months is not fun, spring opens up the option for you to wear different styles. Trainers and loafers bring back that casual look we miss during the winter, while chukka boots and brogues rejuvenate style for the outdoor season. In spring 2019, try experimenting with something new.

Men’s St. Patrick’s Day style guide

men's style guide for st patricks day

St. Patrick’s Day is always one big welcoming bash. You can expect lots of dancing, hearty traditional dishes, huge parades and as many pints as you can handle…

As great as this occasion may be, that’s no excuse to let your dress standards slip. You don’t want to be that guy in the over the top bright green outfit with a Guinness hat on – that can be spotted all the way from Dublin.

Whether you’re heading to London’s St Patrick’s Day parade or to the pub with a few mates, we’ve got you covered on what to wear and where to go in and around London.

What to do for St. Patrick’s Day

You don’t have to go to Ireland to enjoy the party atmosphere of St Patrick’s Day 2019. There’s plenty going on right here in London, such as the London St Patrick’s Day Parade, the Music Trail at Camden Market or visiting an Irish pub near you.

What to wear for St. Patrick’s Day

Rather than covering yourself head-to-toe in bright green, opt for a dash of unexpected colour – pair shades of greens with more neutral colours.

To the pub

If you plan on heading down to the nearest Irish pub, the easiest way to nod to the occasion is to throw on a green piece of knitwear. Try opting for something like a khaki sweater that will slot seamlessly into your current wardrobe. Add your favourite jeans and a pair of quality Chelsea boots and you’re all set.

To the parade

London’s St Patrick’s Day parade lines the streets from Piccadilly to Trafalgar Square and cheers on a stream of leprechaun floats, traditional musicians and squads of Irish dancers. If you don’t mind crowds, hit the streets with a green scarf and a pair of comfortable smart casual leather trainers.

To a dinner date

If you prefer a quieter dinner, team up a plain tee with a blazer and tailored trousers. Add a stylish pair of brogues and you’re all set.

When is St Patrick’s Day?

St Paddy’s day takes place on March 17, but in true Irish fashion, you might want it to run throughout the weekend.

What is St Patrick’s Day?

It’s another excuse to drink. Well, not really, but who’s judging? The day is actually a global celebration of Irish culture, and particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century.

Men’s Style Guide: How to Wear Loafers

Loafers are a fashion staple for men, adding the perfect touch of smart-casual to any outfit. Loafers are an easy way to take your style to the next level. They are greatly versatile, having the ability to take you from a casual weekend to a formal event with ease.

Sliding on a pair of loafers is the easy part, but we’ve laid out a few guidelines so that your outfit will always be on point. In this guide, we help advise you on how to wear loafers with any outfit.

Wearing loafers

how to wear men's loafers

Whether dressed up or down, loafers work best with tailored bottoms – slim, modern, and tapered fits. On the top, this sleek and minimal shoe style gives you plenty of freedom. Your shirts can be slim or intentionally loose fit.

Socks or no socks?

how to wear men's loafers

If you’re after a more traditional look, wearing your loafers with a pair of socks will be your go-to, but pick a pair that coordinates well with the rest of your outfit.

When going sockless, you’re going to have to get that trouser gap right. Make sure that your jeans or trousers aren’t too long, so that the hem drops just over the shoe. Some stylish men even prefer to tailor their trousers to be just above their ankle. If you do opt for no socks, we suggest using no-show socks, which will protect your shoes and avoid sweaty feet.

Casual wear

A casual loafer is anything made of suede or that has more than 2 colours (excluding tassel loafers). These style loafers can be worn with almost anything from a t-shirt and jeans to chinos and a button-up shirt. They also partner perfectly with shorts during warmer months. Casual loafers will also give you a more sophisticated look than trainers.

Dress wear

Not all casual loafers can be dressed up. For an outfit that’s more on the formal side, one or two tone leather loafers are your best bet. These styles are perfectly paired with a blazer and tailored trousers, providing you with a stylish and polished look. Despite the stigma around the shoe only being a smart-casual option, in current times, the loafer can be worn for formal settings.

On That Note

Loafers are a versatile pair of shoes that you can easily and comfortably wear with most outfits. If you’re in two minds about wearing this style, maybe it’s time you slide into a pair. As long as you follow the above guide, wearing loafers is easy and rewarding.

Caring for Your Dress Shoes

caring for your dress shoes

Shoes have the ability to make or break an outfit and how others perceive you – so keeping them in pristine condition is a must.

We’ve all been there. You purchase a new pair of shoes, and at first, you clean off every little smudge – until your busy schedule gets in the way and you forget to care for the shoes that get you from A to B.

In this guide, Anatomic & Co discuss a number of easy ways to care for your leather and suede dress shoes.

Caring for and cleaning your dress shoes

caring for your dress shoes

Shoe Polish – a good shoe polish will prolong the lifespan of your leather shoes, ensuring that they always look new.

Waterproofing – when it rains, salt can penetrate your leather or suede shoes and cause permanent stains. This may also lead to cracking if exposed to excessive moisture. So if you live in a rainy climate, we highly recommend that you waterproof your dress shoes. Once a month should do the trick, but if you notice that water stops running off the surface, then it’s time for a new coat.

Brushing – gently brushing your shoes will remove debris and dirt off of the surface.

Shoe Trees – placing a shoe tree inside your dress shoe will help preserve their shape and lengthen the lifespan.

Shoe Horn – dress shoes are usually stiff, which is where a shoe horn will come in handy. This will help prevent the back of your shoes getting bent when you put them on.

Leather dress shoes

cleaning and caring for your dress shoes

If cared for correctly, leather shoes can last a lifetime. Leather shoes are most likely your trusted going out, work and special occasion shoes, which means that are subject to so much wear and tear. That’s why you need to show them some love. Here’s a quick step by step guide to caring for your leather dress shoes:

  1. Gently brush your leather shoes with a horsehair brush to remove any dust or debris
  2. Wipe the shoes with a warm sponge to make the leather more porous
  3. Apply a waterproofing compound
  4. Lastly, apply shoe polish in a circular motion until you get a shine

Additionally, condition your shoes once a month to moisten the leather and prevent cracking.

Suede shoes

cleaning and caring for your dress shoes

Despite what you may think, keeping your suede shoes clean and crisp doesn’t require all that much effort. With a bit of regular upkeep, you can keep them looking box-fresh. Here’s how to take care of your suede shoes:

  1. Use a suede protector to protect your shoes from stains (suede stains easily, so clean any spills on them immediately)
  2. Use a suede brush to gently clean off any dirt and stains
  3. Spray the shoes monthly with a waterproofing solution (suede shoes do not like water)

For stains that have already set in, try using a solution of two parts water and one part vinegar to try and reverse the damage.

Even the most expensive shoes in the world won’t do anything for you in the long run if they are neglected. Always pay more attention to your dress shoes, because everyone else is.

Men’s style guide: How to lace your dress shoes

shoelaces for dress shoes

It might not be something you give much thought to, but many men don’t know how to properly lace their dress shoes. When it comes to dressing well, the small details matter.

Anatomic & Co has put together a quick and easy guide to help you get laced up in style.

lacing mens dress shoes

Types of shoelaces

There are two types of laces that you can use for dress shoes: round laces for more formal shoes and flat laces for less formal styles. Avoid extra flat/wide athletic laces when it comes to dress shoes.

Smart shoes have a tough and careful construction – so choosing the right lace can make the whole lot of difference in comfort and tieing.

When it comes to colour, you can either play it safe with darker shades that are similar to the colour of your shoe, or alternatively, experiment with some vibrant colours.

lacing mens dress shoes

Round Laces

If you are after quality, then round laces are your best bet. Paired mainly with brogues and Oxford shoes, round laces are long lasting. Strangely, the best quality round laces are always the thinnest – making them easy to thread through the eyelets. Round laces bring clean-cut detail to any shoe.

Flat shoelaces and boot laces

Flat, thin dress laces are the boldest option. They can change a shoes delicacy design remarkably, so a cleaner design shoe, like a Derby, work best with this lace.

Flat boot laces are built to last, making them a good choice for all kinds of boots. If you do decide to opt for boot laces, always go for that extra bit of length.

lacing mens dress shoes

Types of lacing styles for dress shoes

Straight Bar lacing – The straight bar look is an easy way to lace your dress shoes. This technique works best with Oxford and more formal shoes, because it allows the uppers of the shoe to come completely together in the middle.

Criss cross lacing – This is a less formal style of lacing and is meant for brogues or Derbys. It’s one of the easiest methods for lacing your dress shoes and should only be done when the top of the shoe has two separate pieces of leather.

Diagonal lacing – This lacing technique adds a sophisticated modern twist to your dress shoes. You can either lace both shoes with the parallel lines going the same way, or you can make them mirror each other. Either way, both are visually appealing.

On that note

The more detailed the shoe, the simpler the lace should be. When it comes to the rest of your outfit, try experimenting with different laces, especially if you are wearing a clean-cut suit. Changing up your laces is an easy way to switch up minor details of an outfit.

Men’s shoe guide: 5 office staples every man should own

men's shoes for the workplace

As we find ourselves in a golden era for men’s office attire, many workplaces have become more flexible with their work attire. As exciting as it is, this may lead to confusion, especially if you’re still trying to nail the professional look.

In this article, Anatomic & Co takes a look at 5 shoe styles every professional gentleman should own. Your shoes are usually the first part of an outfit to draw attention to the eye, and also provide a good base to direct the rest of your outfit – so getting it right is a must!

With a great pair of shoes alone, you can elevate your professional look immensely.

1) The brogue

men's shoes for the workplace

The classically cool brogue is now seen as an acceptable business shoe, as well as a smart, yet relaxed option. Not only are they smart and stylish, but they can also add interest to any outfit thanks to their unique perforations

Tip: The best brogues are the ones that can be worn with both smart and casual outfits to create a sophisticated finish.

2) The oxford

men's shoes for the workplace

The Oxford’s clean design makes it the epitome of elegant formal shoes. This shoe style is ideal for more formal workplaces.

Tip: Black Oxford’s are a good go-to option when dressing professionally.

3) The loafer

men's shoes for the workplace

The highly versatile loafer can be dressed up with tailored trousers for more formal workplaces or dressed down with jeans for a more casual office setting. Loafer’s are a great everyday work shoe, as they tend to be both durable and comfortable.

Tip: In warmer months, you can wear your loafers with no socks, and in colder months, with socks.

4) The Chelsea boot

men's shoes for the workplace

Another shoe that can be dressed up or down is the stylish Chelsea boot. The Chelsea boot will give you the ideal balance of being more dressed up than a trainer, but not quite as formal as a pair of Oxford’s.

Tip: Depending on your style preference, you’ll find great options in leather and suede.

5) The Desert boot

men's shoes for the workplace

A casual classic for the more laidback workplace, the desert boot combines simplicity and taste in equal measure. Although this style is generally considered a casual shoe, they can be styled-up with more formal attire.

Tip: The flattering shape of the desert boot means that they can work for everyone, regardless of their personal style.

It’s often said that you can judge a man’s character by his shoes, and that’s never truer than in the workplace.

Anatomic & Co shoes are made with Anatomic Gel Technology. This makes the soles incredibly flexible, bouncy and comfortable. The insoles also have a memory, so once you take your shoes off and leave them to rest, they go back to their original shape ready to look after your feet the next day.

Men’s style guide: Reinventing your personal style

mens style: changing your style

If you feel like your wardrobe lacks personality, and your sense of style is looking a little flat, don’t you worry, because reinventing your look is easier than you think.

Stagnation is a familiar enemy for many men out there. Wearing the same thing day in and day out can make your look feel tired – it’s strange how what we wear affects how we feel about ourselves.

The year is still fresh, so now’s as good a time as any to do a little reinventing. Here’s a quick and easy guide to do just that.

Out with the old

mens style: changing your style

Before you begin recreating your style, you need to get rid of all the stuff that’s not helping with your current look. Too many of us are guilty of hoarding items in our wardrobes that we’ll never wear again — like old T-shirts that have lost their life. Let them go!

By saying this, however, you can hold onto essential items, like basics that can be incorporated into your new look.

Find your style inspiration

mens style: changing your style

So you know that you want to reinvent your style, but you don’t exactly know what you want it to look like. The best way to find out is by looking for inspiration from style icons, social fashion pages and great blogs (like ours).

Remember to consider your lifestyle and working environment, and make sure that your new look complements these.

Start small

mens style: changing your style

While you’re becoming an expert in your new look, start with the basic pieces of that style. Try working with items that you already have and experiment with subtle changes. A new pair of shoes or adding some men’s accessories to your outfit can make a big difference in helping you achieve a certain look.

Small additions such as this will provide you with a good base to expand on.

Choose carefully

mens style: changing your style

Upgrading your look can be a costly affair — budget yourself. Rather than splashing on anything that fits your new style, be selective and choose pieces that work well together. Cohesion in your wardrobe will maximise the versatility of every item.

If the look that you are going for is more expensive, try saving on basics (like plain T-shirts) and invest in statement items like jackets or shoes. Your new style will likely depend more on these items.

What else can you do to reinvent your style?

mens style: changing your style

Reinventing your style does not only involve what you wear. A new hairstyle or improving your physique also plays a key role in creating your new image.

Many gentlemen out there pick a hairstyle and stick to that their whole lives – change it up, because your hairstyle will correlate with the rest of your reinvented style.

Likewise, changing your physique will also change your look and how your clothes fit.

At Anatomic & Co, we like to think that Valentine’s Day is just a great excuse to eat chocolate, have a glass (or a few bottles) of wine and do something you enjoy, with that special someone in your life.

It’s also an excuse to get some nice new stuff! We’re not saying men don’t like roses and chocolates, too, but a new pair of shoes is that much better…

The detail-oriented man

men's brogues - dress shoes

If your man appreciates the art of dressing well and the craftsmanship of his shoes, he’ll be delighted with a new pair of brogues. This classic shoe style has a timeless appeal and can be worn with many outfits, including everything from tailored jeans and a v-neck shirt, to a two-piece suit.

The rugged man

men's boots - dress shoes

Men who like their boots are likely to be both trendy and masculine. A good pair of desert boots or lace-up boots will see the receiver through the colder seasons ahead with pure, unadulterated flair. If cared for correctly, they will last as long as you hope your relationship will…

The casual but cool man

men's trainers - dress shoes

For the easygoing gentleman out there, trainers will be at the top of their wish list. A solid pair of trainers will provide both style and comfort unlike any other piece of footwear. Trainers are now widely acceptable for most occasions – a night out in town, smart-casual events and even most work places.

The sophisticated man

men's chelsea boots - dress shoes

A pulled-together gentleman will appreciate a quality pair of Chelsea boots. Regardless of age, size, or personal style, the timeless Chelsea boot deserves a spot on every shoe rack. Available in both leather and suede, they also come in a variety of colours.

The laid-back man

men's chelsea loafer - dress shoes

The skillful blend of comfort and flair make the loafer a favoured style for the laid-back gentleman. A quality pair of loafers is one of the most versatile and wearable pieces that a man can have in his footwear wardrobe.

A guide to men’s winter boot styles

mens winter boots

Most stylish gentlemen would’ve already purchased their winter boots for the 2019 season, while others may still be on the hunt for styles that suit their personal taste.

Whether you’re after a pair of trendy street-style boots or something more on the sophisticated side, Anatomic has rounded up the boots that will see you through the colder months.

What to look out for in winter boots

mens winter boots

Quality materials: A well-made boot will always be made of quality leather or materials. The price is often a good indicator – dirt cheap prices indicate cheap craftsmanship and materials.

A good sole: If you cannot see the continuation of the stitch through the sole, then you’re looking at a pair of cheaper boots with an imitation welt. The soles of Anatomic’s shoes feature Anatomic Gel Technology®, which give the soles added resistance and flexibility.

Intel: A well-made boot or shoe has detailed information on how and where it is made. Anatomic’s shoes are designed in the UK and handcrafted in Brazil using the latest shoe-making technology and finest materials.

Practicality: Quality designs will combine functionality with style. These boots will be fitted with comfortable and practical soles.

Chelsea Boots

mens winter boots

Chelsea boots are perfect for channeling a cool, effortless style. This is by far the most versatile boot. The right pair can be worn with tailored trousers during the week or with skinny jeans over the weekend.

While suede Chelsea boots are highly appealing, leather options provide resilience and an enduring elegance during the cold and wet – just give them a wipe.

Ankle/ Desert Boots

mens winter boots

The desert boot is a smarter, more hardwearing alternative to trainers. While the mid-weight construction of the desert boot marks them as a clear choice for warmer seasons, they’re actually a top pick for winter months too.

The in-between profile makes this boot smart enough to style with a roll neck, blazer and tailored trousers, but at the same time casual enough to be worn with chinos or jeans and a sweatshirt. Ideal for winter dress codes.

Lace up boots

mens winter boots

Throughout recent years, we have seen lace up boots come and go, but this season, the merge of fashion and function is back. The trend has been seen to play an important role in street fashion so far, and we’re guessing it won’t be going anytime soon.

You can pair them with a range of casual outfits, from joggers to jeans, denim jackets to parkas. Just remember, this boot style should always be casual.

 

On that note:

As a stylish gentleman, you’ll need some quality winter boots, and not just one pair, preferably two or more. These hard-working styles mentioned above will help get you through your frosty commute – in style too! Winter boots are as good-looking as they are practical.

You can explore Anatomic’s handcrafted range of high quality boots here.
