Bexley is a French brand making classic men’s shoes, using mostly Blake construction. Wide range of models includes oxfords and wholecusts, derbies, monks, as well as casual footwear. In the beginnings of my menswear fascination I bought two pairs of Bexley shoes, and they lasted quite long in a good shape. Since then, the company introduced clothing to their offer, including shirts.
Until 8th of August, Bexley has a sale. And this makes the prices really affordable. Dress shoes begin at 99€ instead of 139€, and shirts – 25€ instead of 50€.
The FREEPOLAND code will give you free shipping to Poland with orders above 99 Euro; this makes it perfect for people looking to get a few pairs of work shoes for everyday use, or for ones looking to experiment a bit with colours and models of their footwear.
Patine.pl is a seller of a Spanish footwear brand, Yanko. They feature elegant design, high quality leathers, beautiful lasts and touches like concealed channel of stitching or bevelled waist on the sole, found usually on high-class shoes.
You can find basically all the classic models in their offer. Interesting 204 oxfords are sure to grab your attention (also on York sole); 664 brogues, in many cool leathers and suedes (and combinations!); the immortal classic that are black 558 oxfords (the most often chosen shoes for weddings – and for a good reason, too!); or really cool 306 double monks on a beautiful last (you can see a pair in Burdeos colour in a photo above).
Klasycznebuty.pl is perhaps the biggest Polish multibrand store with classic men’s footwear. A wide selection of models and brands in various prices should satisfy most enthusiasts of elegant shoes.
This time the store has prepared a discount code for the readers of the blog. 15% for all the shoes by the British brand Barker. It works until 7th of June, midnight. Here it is:
Discount will work after you input the code on the shopping cart page. This should be interesting especially for those who have wider feet and can’t really fit into all the slim-lasted shoes. The models I like the most are Newcastle half-brogue and the classic Nevis oxford – they look really good, and the versatile shades of brown will go well with almost any outfit. There’s more to choose from, however, and I encourage you to go exploring.
Benevento is a company making trousers. They have over 20 years of experience in this area, and they utilize it well: they make very good, both quality- and design-wise, product, mostly using British fabrics.
While ordering, you can ask for custom changes – both when it comes to measurements, and details. Side tabs, button fly, pleats. Two basic fit types (regular and slim), variety of sizes (both waist and inseam), and possibility of custom modifications makes it possible to get a very well-fitting pair of trousers for various body types. Soon and online configuration form will make those custom orders even easier.
Benevento introduced some new things recently. Beige Super 120s wool from VitaleBarberis Canonico will be perfect for summer – slightly less formal than gray, and a little more interesting too. If that’s not bold enough for you, though, there’s this light gray checked wool. The pattern is visible, but subdued enough as to not be too loud.
For a year-round option, Benevento has herringbone wool trousers – right now in light gray, but other colours will soon follow. It’s a classic and timeless pattern and will work with almost all outfits with a jacket.
I encourage you to follow the brand’s website and social media, as new things should become available soon.
Last but not least, Poszetka.com – a brand that selles beautiful and high-quality accessories. Their products are usually in limited supply, and are made in Poland by hand using mostly Italian and British fabrics.
They don’t limit themselves just to ties and pocket squares, however. I had a chance to visit their shop in Katowice, and try on this very cool panama hat. Perfect for summer sun!
I also loved their linen braces.
If you do want ties though, they’ve recently restocked their signature grenadine ties. It’s one of my favourite types of silk, made in Italy on special looms, with an interesting, three-dimentional texture.
