The Aesthetics of Grit

I've taken on a smidge of street-grit since I got my feet into these thick wooden-soled low boots from Tim Hamilton Spring 2009. They were manufactured in the same factory where Guidi shoes are made, and they have that same dark weathered feel to them, updated with a hint of Tim's modernism.

There is something mysteriously gritty about all-black ensembles. You never knowhow many times a person has worn and re-worn a black garment. You never see dirt on black.

lots of little silver buttons

Nothing says style like shoes that look like they've lived more than the person wearing them!
