Summertime Blues

This season, it's clear that a little color goes a long way. You're likely sporting a NATO watch strap in shades that are nearly neon and perhaps you've even  delved into boldly colored go-to-hell pants. So why not trade out your everyday brown leather or white canvas kicks for a  shoe cut from summery suede and dyed an inky blue hue?  They look sharp with everything from chinos and shorts, to white denim and dad jeans, along with the  aforementioned GTH pants. And as you can see, the trend has  made its way into nearly every style  (and price point) you could want.
