Suede Thinking

When wearing fall and winter clothing, nothing finishes a look off better than suede details such as shoes, gloves, belts and coats. The reason it makes your outfit look so rich is because the textures of suede coincide perfectly with the textures of heavy weight clothing.

Think of how a flannel suit looks and feels: it is textured, "fuzzy" and full of depth in the same manner that fine suede is. Wearing a calf skin shoe with flannel is fine, it still looks quite elegant, but it doesn't add the element of "that guy takes it to a different level" that suede would.

Invest in classic items like shoes and a matching belt (start with brown) and you will find yourself wearing them with anything from jeans and cords to flannels and cashmere.
