My grandpa, a man that wears a suit everyday regardless of the occassion (in the Saigon heat and humidity no less)... always told me as a kid that a fine pair of dress shoes was essential to every man's wardrobe. Only now can I come to appreciate such a formality, these bespoke Gaziano & Girling woburn blucher brogues are a beautiful example of a versatile shoe (worn with suit or casually with cropped trousers sans socks =)

I perused the fabric markets of Saigon during a recent visit and had some bespoke trousers tailored by the talented Mr. Chieu.

I'll be venturing back to Vietnam early September, another visit will be necessary for a tux and single button suit =)
