YOU KNOW when you get ready to go out to a fun party, you have your party tunes on and you're feeling good?! I was having one of those moments as I cracked a box of fresh kicks. Many of you know how fond of monochromatic I am. In this instance black and white is the order of the day. A cheeky change for a black tie function or a fun summer cocktail look, throw on some fresh kicks with your suit to put F U N into your wardrobe.
Brisbane based tailoring outfit Wil Valor cut some mighty fine lines, I highly recommend them for suiting and shirts. Melbourne based Rhodes & Beckett are right at the top of corporate fashion and make some very chic suits, shirts and ties. Last but not least are the kings of mens footwear Aquila, kicking from Melbourne since the 50's. Known for their corporate and event footwear, this foray into sneakers is long overdue. Everything I'm wearing is super comfortable, and yet still has a level of elegance about it.
However you slice it, like it or not, sneakers paired with suits are here to stay for some time. If you like it, try it.
