All clever titles aside...summer weather has come and gone and you're probably thinking about retiring your white bucks. I can't say I blame you. No matter how wonderfully scuffed they may be, Sartorially Inclined recommends they go into hibernation until S/S 2010. While they rest comfortably in the back of your closet why not turn to a new, fall ready pair? In keeping with the classics, snatch up a pair of bucks in a taupe, brown or another dark color as one of your go to, everyday shoes this autumn. They fall somewhere in between your dressy, oxford lace-ups and your casual sneakers...and that's what's so great about them. Wear them to the office, wear them on the weekend, it doesn't matter. A beautiful pair of suede shoes can go anywhere with you. We all know that you're going to be wearing your boots and mocs, but you should really consider giving a pair of bucks a go. Check out some of these classic bucks for fall...
L.L Bean Classic Bucks...$79
Brooks Brothers Classic Buck...$198
Inventory Mark McNairy Bucks...$350
If price was no object I would buy a pair of those Inventory Bucks quicker then you could down a mint julep and tell me bucks were only for summertime. But, alas, that is not the case. With a budget in mind, I actually like the cheapest of the bunch. The Brockton by Bass has a great looking sole (both shape and color) and a really wonderful taupe colored suede. The toe looks just modern enough, yet maintains every bit of its classic style. For $64 they are a steal, especially for a shoe you can literally wear everyday. Buck up.
