April's To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Gentleman
Warm weather is on the horizon, sock are again optional. Although I'm the first person to put on a pair of thongs Sandals, a good pair of classic sneaker is a must in every mans (and womens) closet. A pair of classic Vans in navy blue or white or all white Lo-Top Chuck Taylor's are probably the Industry standards.
I would like to introduce SeaVees Pantone. I ordered my pair of gray Pantone's over Christmas, after breaking them in I honestly can't stop wearing them.
The Pantone's aren't the lightest shoe, but the quality in the build and over all comfort is hard to beat, they are more comfortable then any athletic shoe I've ever wore.
SeaVees, a small company in California is making a stand out product that you need to experience. Since buying my pair, SeaVees have launched a new line of the Pantone made of all canvas martial which drops the price to under $100. You might think, YIKES!! More than $100 for a pair of sneakers? I see people blow out $150 or more on the much less fashionable Nike Air Jordan's, where SeaVees want to stand out with great detailing, standing behind their product. I e-mailed them a few times with questions and they responded quickly with helpful detailed answers. As you see in my photos, not only do they come with individual cloth shoe bags, they have a very cool patch sewn into the sole with their name imprinted on it.
If your interested in trying on a pair of Pantones, which I highly recommend, If you live in Richmond you can go to The Need Suppy Co. in Carytown or online at needsupply.com , If you can't find what you want there send me an e-mail and I'll put you in contact with Derek at SeaVees and he'll help you get the right shoe.
