This week's shoe is inspired by Time Out Chicago's article "The Best Shoes For Men Summer 2013". Of all the shoes they listed, we were drawn particularly to a new-age sneaker by Clarks called the Sutter. Don't shy away from suede this summer. The Sutter sneaker has a wingtip feel and a white sole to keep it on the edge of casual and dressy (for a sneaker at least). This is one shoe you might even be able to pull off with a summer suit or some fresh white linen pants.
For a matching belt, we decided not to go as matchy-matchy. Instead of pairing the sneaker with a taupe suede belt, we went for matching the sole and the white stitch. You don't always have to match the main color of a shoe - it is completely acceptable to go for a belt in a color that matches the shoe's accents instead. Therefore we went the reverse - a white suede shoe with a tan stitch. Check it out here:
