Boot Guide Part 2: The Rugged Boot

A couple weeks ago, we introduced our Fall Boot Guide  with examples of the tough-but-refined Wingtip Boot.

Today, we’d like to focus on a class of Rugged Boots that fully embraces masculine military and workwear influences—but still can (and should) be worn in a dressy way.

Just look at how handsomely they anchor a plaid tie and tweed vest in the images above. Add a bleached-out jean jacket and you’re ready for anything, from drinks with the guys to lunch with a new client. It’s called contrast, sirs—and it’s the key to a cool outfit.

Here are 6 of our favorite Rugged Boots (in addition to the Frye ‘Logger’ Boot above)—but be sure to shop our full selection here.

Rugged Boots (Top, L-R): Rag & Bone | Dsquared2 | G-Star Raw
(Bottom, L-R): Sorel | UGG Australia | Moncler

    Greetings Men at Nordstrom.

    Such a cool and awesome look at the wardrobe of the urban male. Men’s style in the city reflects the urban warrior and/or the Indiana Jones who now dresses downtown as well as uptown slick…

    Thanks for bring us the latest in men’s style and fashion.

    BTW: I wrote an article about London Fashion Week and I had the great opportunity to get an exclusive interview with London stylist Lisa Fifer if you have time check it out.

    10,000,000 blessings in every drop of rain, Catherine
