It’s not often you pair black with browns, but for summer the combination of black and tan can go work at the office but also transition to the evening for a night out.
These Edward Green double monks make a reliable companion for a busy day. The black pebble grain gives the leather a rougher texture, keeping the normally formal black from veering too far into the conservative spectrum. Along with a punched medallion design on the toe’s cap and double-thick soles, this unique piece of footwear balances the outfit.
The jacket, a wool-silk-linen blend from Canali, in a dark charcoal-brown fabric with a golden windowpane mimics the tones of the shoe. Paired with taupe wool-cotton trousers from Samuelsohn, the outfit wears cool for the warmer weather.
