2015 has begun…and I would be tempted to say: SO WHAT. Those days, and too often in my opinion, one can see in the entire media sphere the “New Year, New Me” nonsense.

Please, feel free to give any valid explanation of the change it makes to start a brand new year because, to me, it definitely does not mean anything other than: “LIFE GOES ON”.

BOYS, MEN, GENTLEMEN, whoever you are, this FIRST article of the year 2015 – what definitely make an EXTRAORDINARY CREATIVE one of it – is FOR YOU – it is then totally legitimate to feel lucky and blessed. You are obviously aware of the fact that I am “kidding” you – in the most gentle way always – but nothing is more serious than my following words. If anyone doubts its professionalism and reliability, feel free to leave expressly. Thank you.

WEEKENDER waxed canvas/cow leather, khaki/hardwood with detachable shoulder strap

There is no need of being an army/navy/US Marines nostalgic for using this NAVYBOOT holdall or weekender. *Understand by “holdall” a gym bag, a “fourre-tout”, or, if you prefer, a large bag for your everyday’s activities, compressible when empty. I guess that the rebel souls will not wait that long before purchasing one of the kind.

DERBY suede leather/calf leather, ink/ink

Looking for some British classic and elegance? Tassel loafers, whatever the color you choose, will bring to your outfit a Londoner sophisticated, but trendy touch. As the London boys do not follow the main stream, and I suppose, refuse to be categorized, they associate their rebel mind (from above) with their native distinguished-but-not-too-much attitude.
I am convinced that lots of you are hidden, secret modern dandies. As you do not care of what people say, dare the derbies! Moreover slightly pointed ones, mixing black and blue – what also has created such a debate but this is another story. If you are hesitating either to assume the legendary dandy’s charm or to play along with the casual hipster’s ease, slip into these cognac rounder and day-style brogues derbies from the NAVYBOOT Original brand. *NAVYBOOT Original was launched by NAVYBOOT in 1991 and finds its inspiration “from the boots that young men in the US Marines were issued for their shore leave“.

All shoes are from the NAVYBOOT Spring Summer 2015 collection as well. *Just to let you know: NAVYBOOT is a men and women shoe brand creating unique pieces, produced in Portugal, hand-painted and sewed in Italy. Every model is unique, incredibly comfortable to wear, timeless and contemporary at the same time.
