Mountain Khaki’s Leather D-Ring Belt Review

I was looking for quality belt I could wear with jeans or chino shorts. The Mountain Khakis Leather D-Ring Belt was one that I had my eye on. This is my first D-Ring belt and it’s rare to see one with leather instead of nylon. I jumped at the chance to check out this new D-Ring belt from Mountain Khakis.

The Mountain Khaki’s Leather D-Ring is made of the finest leather that is soft and pliable and fits without discomfort. The quality leather is one that will age well and last a lifetime. The leather is made of 1 ½” vegetable-dyed, bridle leather. The D-Ring is made of antique nickel which you simply loop together to close the belt.

The classic design of this belt makes it a perfect casual belt to wear everyday of the week. I wore these with the M’s Equatorial Shorts that I previous reviewed and found them to be really comfortable. The belt comes in 4 sizes which I recommend you size up 2 inches from your waist size.

I really like that Mountain Khakis quality is consistent across the board. Every product I received from them is top notch. The leather D-Ring Belt by Mountain Khakis is the perfect belt for the everyday man. Its simple design will make you look good while the quality of the belt will be in your wardrobe for years to come.

Allen Edmonds Dalton Review

I was looking for a versatile boot that looks good with a suit as well as jeans. The Allen Edmonds Dalton maybe the boot I was looking for. I saw post on The Style Blogger found HERE how you can dress up and dress down the Daltons to fit any style of clothes.

The Allen Edmonds Dalton comes in Walnut and Dark Chocolate brown calf which are both great colors. In addition I believe a horse hide cordovan version was also available for a limited time. The dress boot has leather uppers with Butyl double leather sole and rubber heel. An issue with earlier Dalton shoes was fixed with the pull tab now being reinforced. The boots feature Wingtip blucher with brogue perforations and medallion.

I owned the AE Bayfield’s, AE Daltons, and AE Fifth Street boots and find the Dalton’s be the most versatile. The Bayfield’s are my go to casual boot, while the Fifth Street is my formal boot while the Dalton’s can be both. The Walnut Dalton looks good with dark blue jeans, chinos, Navy Suit, and Grey Suit. I can get so many looks out of these one Dress boots.

The Allen Edmonds Dalton is a truly nicely looking boot that is well worth the price. The Dalton fits like a glove, is comfortable from the start and is true to size. I like the walnut color which can be easily dress up and dress down with your attire.

Allen Edmonds Park Avenue Cap-toe Lace-up Oxford Walnut Cloud Review

Allen Edmonds announced the new line for the fall and the Park Avenue gets updated with two new colors.  One of the most popular shoes in Allen Edmonds collection, the Park Avenue comes out with the Walnut Cloud and Granite Grey colors.  In addition Allen Edmonds now has custom soles to choose from for $50 more which include Clare Rubber sole, Gold Sole, and V Tread Tap Sole.

The Allen Edmonds Park Avenue is the perfect shoe for the office, boardroom, or a special occasion like a wedding or formal party or dinner.  I was waiting for Allen Edmonds to release this shoe with the ever popular walnut color.  I find Allen Edmonds walnut to be there signature color and one that is most desired.  The same way people wait for Apple to release a white iPhone is same way I feel when waiting for a walnut Allen Edmonds shoe to be released.

I find the walnut to be the most versatile color in Allen Edmonds array of colors.  The walnut cloud looks good with natural, navy, and gray suits.  Those who are fashion forward may mix things up with corduroy sports coats, blazers, jeans, and chinos.  The walnut cloud is lighter than the regular walnut that is seen on the walnut Strand for example.  It is a color that really pops when worn and has slight accents of black which give it its cloud name.

On a special occasion the Park Avenue is simply the go to shoe in every guys wardrobe.  The classic design and sleek look will make you the best dress guy in the room.  Now if you’re the guy still wearing squared toe glued shoes you owe to yourself to go to an Allen Edmonds store and buy a real made in America, Goodyear welted shoe that is timeless.  I know that after discovering Allen Edmonds shoes I refuse to wear anything else on my feet.

Allen Edmonds Long Branch Review

The fall is upon us and Allen Edmonds has you covered with a fall boot to get excited about.  The Long Branch has the stylings of the Dalton with the ruggedness of the discontinued popular Bayfield’s boots.  It is exactly the boot to add to your fall shopping list.

The Long Branch is part of Allen Edmonds new fall 2012 collection.  It has a similar lineage to the Allen Edmonds Daltons with a more rugged Vibram rubber outsole.  The boot is recraftable as it features 360 degree Goodyear welted construction.  The Long Branch is welted on the 1 last which is similar to the 7 Last from heel to the ball of the foot, yet with a more rounded, fuller fitting toe.  The Wingtip blucher boot features full brogue perforations and medallion.  The leather uppers are of high quality standards that Allen Edmonds puts out in all of their shoes.

I am a big fan of boots in general and have to say that Allen Edmonds makes some superb ones.  The Long Branch is the perfect casual dress boot that looks nice and wears nice.  The Vibram sole along with the speed hooks and red laces give it a casual look that is perfect for jeans and a v-neck.  The Wingtip blucher allows it to go upscale with chinos and shawl cardigan.  The Allen Edmonds Long Branch is the most versatile boot in AE’s collection.

I can honestly say that I am super impress by Allen Edmonds Fall Collection as they are a breath of fresh air.  The Long Branch particular is one that I had my eye on for a while.  And now that I have it, I have a million ways I would like to wear it with my wardrobe.

Allen Edmonds ” Independence Collection” Rutledge Dress Shoe Review

The holiday shopping season is in full force and if you want to get that someone special a truly perfect gift then take a look at Allen Edmonds.  Allen Edmonds has a huge selection of shoes and they expanded to include a premium line called the Independence Collection named after signers of the Declaration of Independence.

The Rutledge was named after Edward Rutledge who was the youngest person to sign the Declaration of Independence.  The Rutledge dress shoe has similar traits to the guy it was named after as the youthful styling is a perfect fit to the then 26 year old Edward Rutledge.

The Allen Edmonds Rutledge dress shoe features a plain-toe balmoral with cap-toe perforations. The shoe comes in three popular color which include walnut calf, burnished black calf and burnished brown calf.  The premium shoes that cost $475 has higher level detailing such as premium selected leather uppers, lambskin lining, wheeled edges, and brass nails in the heel and a brass vintage Allen Edmonds nameplate on the outsole.  Allen Edmonds continues to make their shoes in the U.S.A which is the reason they are highly regarded.

The Allen Edmonds Rutledge is a shoe that would likely cost twice as much from some of the luxury shoe brands. The fact you’re getting a shoe that should cost over $1000 for half of that makes it a great value.  If you’re having a hard time finding the perfect gift this holiday season then take a look at the Allen Edmonds Rutledge.  The Rutledge shoe is the perfect gift idea for the guy in your life.
