If you’re one of many men who doesn’t enjoy clothes shopping, I’m here to tell you that updating your winter wardrobe doesn’t have to be a chore! I’m going to tell you how a pair of boots can glide you through Autumn/Winter fashion!
Invest in Boots
Boots are probably the best investment you can make to your Winter Wardrobe. A rugged pair of boots will take you on a long walk, and look great as you enjoy a drink with friends. Something like a classic Timberland boot never really goes out of style, and if you love jeans will be your go to!
I believe boots work really well as a smart style too. It’s easy to forget that boots can work well with a suit, or jeans and a smart shirt. I think Peaky Blinders has made wearing boots with a suit really fashionable again. A smart boot under a suit looks great, and there’s no worrying about your novelty socks showing in an important meeting either! Of course there are the practical benefits of wearing boots in winter. Hands up who got cold wet feet in their shoes during the snow last year?
Jacamo have a great range of mens boots from casual to formal and in a variety of prices. One thing I think is great thing about Jacamo is they stock a range of shoe styles in bigger sizes. Bigger sizes are sometimes harder to locate on the high street. They also stock big brands like Timberland, Dr Marten and Clarks.
Jacamo kindly offered to send us a pair of boots of our choice. We opted for a Clarks tan boot as they’ll work really well both with a pair of smart jeans and a navy or grey suit. Clarks offer half sizes which is great to help get the perfect fit.
The boots are quite low on the ankle. So not too restrictive if you’ve only been used to wearing shoes. This style look best with trouser legs hanging over them. Avoid skinny fit jeans and make sure you choose a long enough leg length! This means the boots will fit nicely under your trouser leg without looking bulky or catching on the back of the boot.
These are a great style, which with a little care will age beautifully too. I think tan leather always improves with wear, but it does need to be looked after to avoid water marks. Like any leather shoes, make sure you polish them carefully to help preserve the leather.
