The beautiful days are here and every elegant man wants to reconcile the casual side without sacrificing elegance.

 

How to proceed ?

We will try to guide you in your choice of shoes, and how to associate them with casual outfits, whether in your professional or private environment.

In the professional world, less formal outfits are gradually taking over and in certain environments, the elegant man can now, without risk, let himself be tempted by certain controlled fantasies.

So we'll be talking a lot about moccasins in this section, as temperatures rise and outfits become lighter, the moccasin is the type of shoe that is synonymous with casualness while maintaining the chic standards of the active man.

The moccasin can also be called a loafer, which is defined as a shoe that is easy to put on without laces.

Summer shoes are grouped into several categories such as "car shoes", "summer moccasin" and even "sleepers".

The common thread running through all of these names, regardless of their materials, patterns or assemblies, is the absence of lacing and therefore a shoe that is held on the foot exclusively by the shoe and the upper part of the upper (the strap or the slap).

So how can you look chic at work when spring has set in and summer is showing its first signs of life?

The moccasin, your most faithful allye

 

At work, your chino or trousers (the jacket may be optional) should be kept to a certain length, avoiding trousers that are too short because, although elegant, they may appear nonchalant to some.

As for the choice of moccasin, we recommend models with a slightly elongated shape and a more marked work on the patina and the shades of patina. The quirky side will be brought out by your choice of colour and its shades.

A Finsbury model is a perfect example of this chic, casual universe, while preserving the statutory attributes of the working man. This is the Brecourt model, from the Vendôme collection, which is a moccasin with a strap available in 2 colours, patina blue and patina brown.

With a slightly long shape and a Latin connotation or temperament, this platform loafer with strap is made of blake assembly, so it offers great flexibility from the first fitting and from the first steps.

The blue patina is deep and will perfectly accompany your navy suits and dark chinos.

The brown patina model will offer you a wider range of combinations, navy suits, grey, linen or more unstructured. The whole chino colour palette will go perfectly with this shade.

In the private sphere, several universes are possible, that of the evenings between friends and that of the total relaxation beach, Bermuda shorts, boat...

 

Daytime

 

Beach, Bermuda shorts, lunch on the terrace, there's absolutely nothing to stop you from staying chic. The first point in summer is to go without socks with your moccasins. Then the choice of model, we offer 3 models from the Finsbury range from the most versatile to the most assertive choice:

The Dandy model "the all-rounder": if you only have one summer model in your suitcases, it is definitely the Dandy.

A true bestseller of the brand, the dandy has been in the collection for many years with an undeniable success.

Loafer without strap, suede calf, with a flexible sole, mono block, flat without heel. It will accompany you from the beach to the city, without socks in trousers or Bermuda shorts, day or night.

The small detail on the sole, a coloured gum bar stamped FINSBURY.

Available in blue, navy, yellow, black, red and brown suede.

 

The Bogota model "the classic": Inspired by the so-called boat models, the Bogota is a loafer with a platform and a cord on the strap. More dressed up than the dandy, it will be very suitable for your summer walks, it is chic and refined, several coloured details on the eyelets as well as on the sole make it a chic classic for the summer.

A thicker sole than the other moccasins with studs will offer you the best comfort and the best foot hold.

Available in beige, blue, navy and green suede.

 

The Cancun model, "the bohemian chic of the summer", new for 2020 and the latest addition to the Finsbury collection.

Inspired by the Car shoe, this moccasin has undergone a special development on its sole to give it greater durability over time. A single block sole, with spikes, contrasted with the bright colours of the suede calf.

The chic detail, the twisted leather cord with a small metal ring and the discreet Finsbury crown on the back side.

Available in Tobacco, Green, Red, Beige and Navy suede.

The latest trend from Finsbury is open footed shoes: sandals.

A brand new range has just been launched by Finsbury with a wide range of leather sandals. Made in Italy from the finest materials, the leathers are of unequalled suppleness, for a resolutely minimalist look.

The range includes several types of sandals, cross-over, strappy, with buckle, the choice is consequently wide and varied.

Two models are worth mentioning, the Skyros sandal, a double buckle leather model. With its adventurous look, it will dress you from the beach to the city in a minimalist spirit. A real fashion sandal, Finsbury has kept its shoe-making spirit and offers a model with brown patinated leather, the must-have of the new 2020 models.

 

The Paros sandal, a supple, cross-over model with grained leather. Sometimes called TONG and made famous by a famous Brazilian brand, Finsbury offers a preview of its premium TONG, with haute couture accents.

A leather sole with a patina and perfect finish, your foot will rest on a supple and ultra-comfortable cousin. As supple as rubber with the nobility of leather.

Your foot is free and your style is unique.

 

In the evening

 

There are three Finsbury models that you may wish to consider.

The Brecourt model, whose qualities have been extensively discussed above in a more professional context. In these different circumstances, you will wear the Brecourt loafer barefoot, with a nice pair of cotton trousers in flashy colours.

Roll up your trousers by about 4 or 5 centimetres and the effect is guaranteed.

 

The Panama model is a boat style moccasin with a lacing cord. Its particularity and its quirky side are based on 2 elements. A thick sole with white rubber for an immediate contrast between the velvet calf and the sole. Note the non-slip rubber.

The second point, an espadrille-type assembly in braided raffia, an inimitable look, especially on a male model.

The ultimate in summertime aperitifs with friends, your pair of panama shirts, a rolled-up chino and your straw hat on a beautiful late afternoon.

Available in turquoise blue, brown and brick red suede

 

The Nikki model is a leather moccasin, in Car shoe assembly, meaning that the sole is integrated into the upper of your shoe, the whole constituting a single element. The rubber studs that make up the sole are your second skin and provide you with unparalleled flexibility.

In the end, your foot and the shoe are one, no sole sensation, for a barefoot feeling.

A true iconic model of the summer moccasin, Finsbury has chosen to give it a smart and distinguished look with a beautiful range of leather skins.

A leather cord finished with a small metal ring makes this model particularly elegant and will accompany you without fail in your sunny weekend outings.

Available in blue patina, burgundy patina and brown patina leather.
