Here I am, back on the subject of men's shoes. I can't help myself. There are so many options this spring. From texture to color to style.

First and foremost, men will you wear a sandal? Something other than a flip flop, that is. Not that I don't like flip flops, because I do. Leather, of course. I'm just curious if you can wrap your mind around an alternative.

Think, easy lazy summer days. Not suit and sandals, like below. More like, frayed khaki shorts with a super soft henley. Are you with me?

I've been a big fan of bucks since the early 90s. I'm a bit obsessed with white ones, in particular. If only I could get one of my clients in these sporty, southern kicks. With a little seersucker, to boot!

But alas, the white buck is a stretch for most men. And that's okay, each individual's style evolves at a different pace. So, while we may start at gray or tan, give me a few months and I'll have them in white.

Men, take note. These are cool.

The retro feel of the Sidewinder makes me want a pair. Whether they become your prescription specs or your go to shades, you can't go wrong. There are so many ways to personalize them, too. Serious fun!

Just another item made for a man, yet I find myself coveting. These JP Johnny Weld hi-top chucks are so cool. The color combination (exclusive to Aloha Rag) allows them to go with any casual outfit. Featuring Bemis weld detailing and terry cloth lining, your feet will be the envy of many!

Ladies, take it in. Take it all in. What men are wearing, that is. Especially on their wrists.

I have been a fan of oversized watches since before they became trendy. I am particularly partial to anything vintage or vintage-inspired. One of my favorite accessories on men (aside from shoes) — watches! It reveals a lot about individual style.

This past weekend, I played the role of make-up artist for my babysitter, as it was prom night. She looked beautiful from head to toe (speaking of ... you should have seen her shoes)!

While I was there, I happened to notice her father's leather cuff watch. First off, he has amazing style. Think: edgy/retro European. I immediately filed the visual of the watch away in my head. And today, when running a few errands, I found a watch similar to the one pictured above by Nemesis, and completely inspired by Mr. Ward.

There are a lot of style cues we can pick up from men ... and this is definitely one of them. Besides, a man's watch looks super cool on a woman.
