Final Touch: Balancing Acts
Put these boots to work this fall.
You may not be conscious of it, but, sometime over the last few years or so, you got swept up in the Americana menswear trend. Skeptical? Trust us, you definitely did. Denim, khakis, Chambray shirts, flannels, Ivy League-inspired varsity jackets, chunky cardigans: the sartorial swath cut by Americana runs wide and deep. Beyond fasion, even, to the likes of retro cocktail bars, old-timey barber shops, and the idolatry of old-school burger stands. In short, Americana is everywhere.
Somewhere in your closet, in fact–at this very moment–there’s a nod to Americana. And that’s good. Because at the end of the day, who can deny the inherent virtues of relaxed-fit chinos, rustic sweaters, and sturdy windbreakers? Americana’s entire ethos is predicated on a pretty uncomplicated message: casual, effortless fashion, courtesy durable, well-made duds.
Take these good ol’ Made in the U.S.A. work boots, for example. This is footwear made for fall, that gamely balances between preppy and rugged. Can you don them at work? Yes. On weekends? Yes. Dress them up, dress them down–these loyal boots will do the job, and promise to stay in style long after fashion editors declare the demise of Americana, and move on to the next big trend.
