Host style: I fell in love with a duck



In the fall of 2009, this men's boot hit my radar. I thought, so, we'll see. Then, Duckie Brown for Florsheim had a season like this:







Then came this most recent fashion show at Duckie Brown. I became hopelessly entranced by the pebbled leather boots, the nod to the paddock boot, and the hip way Duckie is kicking it old-school with Florsheim (yes, Florsheim, my Grandpa just rolled over). I am trying not to gush: There are reasons to hold back, the clothing -was there any? Who even knows.

But look, I am in love with a duck who wears boots and we should go forward with that understanding.

I'm crazy about these boots. I like looking at men's shoes as much as women's. Superb craftsmanship. There is (was?) a men's shoe store on Christopher St. that just blew me away. I can't recall the name. The shoes were works of art.

Suddenly, I am cattapulted back to my teens and the lust over a pair of similiarly crafted boots that I adored. Boots have a way of doing that, they just quack, quack til we break down and give in.
Buy those bad boy boots. I can live vicariously, can't I.
Did I see you today in the neighborhood at the gas station? Looked like you?

Karena, LPC, Clapping - Agreed! And Tintin might know about the place you mention on Christopher...

Tintin - teal.

PVE - indeed, I should get to watch him wear them at the very least. It was not me, unfortunately, I wish, I am in Middleburg at the moment far far far from humanity and missing it...

The trousers seem a bit short.
