Men’s Fashion That Doesn’t Suck?

Frankly, men’s fashion is in a perpetually sad state.  If you want something decent, you pay through the nose for it.  Off-the-rack American menswear caters to the common man, who frankly is either a fashion slob, or only wears what’s available.  This creates a self-perpetuating cycle of bad fashion begets bad fashion sense.

Every so often I’ll see something that stands out.  In this case, it’s a pair of shoes from Urban Outfitters.  Yes, they’re nearly $150, but that’s a far cry from the $300+ you’re looking at for most decent stuff.
