City Style with SWIMS Barry Brogue
Ladies and Gents, it’s time for cooler weather and in some parts of the country that’s called fall. It’s time for 60-75 degree weather and if you live in the south like I do, weather can be between 73 in the morning to an uncomfortable 92 during the day, without letting up in the evening. But I guess we have to make best of our situations. I forgot to mention if you haven’t already, it’s also time to switch your closet from summer to winter. So that means no more straw hats, and you can now pull out your suede shoes and dark color clothes.
If you haven’t been keeping up with trends and colors for Fall 2017, brown is the color of the season. Being able to rock a leather or suede jacket in cognac, caramel or sepia is always stylish. Honestly, brown is one color I don’t wear too often myself unless it is an accessory (i.e brown leather band watch, belt, shoes). I do love pairing earth tone colors with brown, it gives a complete outfit another type of elegance or more of a mature look. I recently received a custom sports coat from Balani and what I love about it is two things maybe you can guess? The first is the color, I never had a green glen plaid sports coat and I love love the elbow patches. Having style is always about feeling; how you feel that day or time.
After selecting my sports coat, shirt, tie, and pants, I needed shoes to complete the look. I’ve recently received a pair of brogues from SWIMS, a Norweigan based lifestyle brand founded in 2006. The Barry Brogues are versatile, clean, functional, sleek, and minimalistic. I could definitely wear the SWIMS Barry Brogues every day with no problems. Best time to wear your Barry Brogues from SWIMS is anytime; whether you’re rocking a casual suit or shorts, always remain comfortable and stylish.
