Side by Side: Meshing Around
There’s a reason the plimsoll is sported by dudes across the street-style universe: it’s the most versatile shoe ever. Our white-soled Langford in blue is an on-point slip-on that’s the real summer-style deal. Breathable and mesh lined, in keeping with the season’s hyper hot technical textiles and sportswear trends, it’s a wardrobe essential that’s as no-nonsense as it is easy to wear. Whether for your nautical adventure or as just the right colour pop for a Thursday night out with the guys, this one stand-out shoe hits two on-trend looks.
What to wear when all eyes are on deck? Keep it simple, and classic. Nail that nautical inspired look down with a short sleeve denim oxford (white buttons prevail) and a pair of safari camel cotton bermudas. Tie the look up with a contrasting blue and orange plaid bow tie à la Cape Cod yacht club. Slap on a marine inspired watch– and welcome to the deep sea.
The shoes set the tone for this hue vs. pattern, boys-will-be-bros look. The power is in the colour blocking and the perfect amount of layering to make it sit right for the night. Start with a pair of narrow slim-cut chinos in deep forest green with a woven belt. Grab your favourite worn-in patterned denim shirt. The final touch: a rich cognac watch to class it up. Layer a brilliant sea blue sportswear jacket over top, roll your pant cuffs, and jump on your fixie to head into town.
