Beckett Simonon has grown quickly over the last few months.  There were only a couple of shoes on their website when I first bought the Caine oxfords for my wedding a few years ago. Since then, they’ve added several new products, including loafers, brogues, sneakers, bomber jackets, and backpacks.

PRAKTICALA did extensive field testing for their latest pair of shoes. Read the Beckett Simonon Durant brogues dress shoe review below!

But despite having a decent collection of oxfords, brogues, and loafers, Jack Erwin hasn’t hasn’t offered any boat shoes until now. I was able to acquire a brand new pair, so read my Jack Erwin Cooper boat shoe review below!

Review: Edox Les Vauberts Swiss Automatic Watch 83007-3-AIN

The Edox Les Vauberts Swiss Automatic Watch is currently making its way through my regular watch rotation. While it is a little too nice to be my everyday timepiece (for that I use my Seiko 5 Sports Auto), it is my go-to piece for dressing an outfit up for a meeting, presentation, or interview.
