SP  The tale of a shoe. It starts with craftsmanship, interweaving with subplots of various style elements and ending on the description of a gentleman.

An amazing loafer that looks like a great transition from a Summer look into the Autumn style. This loafer is made of hand-woven calf with a hand-braided leather piece forming the apron stitching.

The start of another beautiful relationship. But I think this one might be short as the fire of the passion will be consumed rather quickly.

Not wanting yet to welcome the start of a new work week and decided to kick back a bit longer in this beautiful room. More importantly, these loafers look like they were made to fit right in at a place like this.

Bespoke shoe Sunday always equates to a nice weekend spent. Bespoke shoes can be causal and fun too, not just formal or classic and only for work. After all, the whole concept of bespoke is to make something that is truly what one seeks. It should end with a smile and a nice time enjoyed after each wear.

A Sunday shoe sharing. Here is a fine example of how a nice glacage can turn an otherwise plain and simple pair of shoes into the center of attention of the attire. It's always worth the time spent to add that extra luster onto the leather.

My casual shoes for the weekend. These sneakers give me a nice break from leather shoes without looking completely casual. A touch of color always helps.

Weekend is the time to rest the mind and rid burdens to regain clarity of thoughts and increase scope of thinking. Another way to accomplish this is through art appreciation. Art stimulates the mind to think more creatively, while at the same time can bring feelings that lighten the heart and elevate the spirit. Have a mind opening weekend.

Daring to be different is to be free from the shackles of established standards and is the first step to innovate and create new norms. However, to be different simply for the purpose of generating attention is akin to trying to reinvent the wheel without knowing the use of a wheel. Style is truly shown when one is able to combine the person's inner qualities with the art of expressionism. When that is achieved, the difference observed will always be one that elevates the curiosity and interest of others.

Having had three consecutive nights of four hours of sleep each, this is a treat to myself.
The coffee is mixed with agave juice and black peppers. The slight spiciness helps to lengthen the original follow-through flavor of the coffee.

Creases on shoes are like the challenges and problems in life that define us. On the shoes, the creases show character of the leather and craftsmanship over time. They shouldn't be shunned as signs of not fitting well. Leather folds and leaves marks after wear, just something natural. Similarly, the obstacles that life throws at us make us stronger and better, more ready to do bigger things. We are not who we are without the marks that mistakes and failures of the past have left with us. Embrace those marks as no one is who he is without them and make use of them as the origins for future improvements.

Exotic and casual. Looking at these shoes and sneakers in alligator leather is starting to alter my definition of luxurious comfort.
