Yesterday's outfit involved what is admittedly a dress version of a Hawaiian shirt (last seen here) and my absolute favorite boots. Shoeshine people literally chase me down the street trying to get their hands on these. I have to explain that the scuffs add character.
Frye has actually been making this "campus boot" since the Civil War. Soldiers on the Confederate and Union sides wore it, and the same style was reissued in the 1970's. What amazes me is that something designed 150 years ago still passes as fashionable. Now that's what I call good design.
