Classic Cool by Aquila

By definition, classic footwear will never go out of style. The mainstay styles of yesteryear continue to occupy our wardrobes as staples today – from loafers and Chelsea boots, to brogues and monk straps. It is in that fine tradition that we introduce to you, the latest offering from Aquila.


A fine pair of tan, bordo or navy shoes can be as important as your attitude in creating a well-curated outfit. There’s a reason these colours have withstood the test of time – they work with almost everything.

The Clapton brogue and Cage Chelsea are two immaculately handmade Italian shoes that are unquestionably a must-have to every man’s wardrobe. Each shoe is made with the iconic blake stitched construction and is a great accompaniment to any pair of light or dark denim jeans, dress pants and tailored blazer. The Cage boot especially, made of Australian kangaroo hide, offers a great texture that can be worn with almost anything.


Bordo and Navy have emerged as new favorites of the modern fashion-conscious man, due in large part to their distinctiveness. Although not as classic as tan, black and brown, recent trends suggest we’re willing to push the traditional dress boundaries, and experiment with the unconventional. To achieve that look, the Cutler single monk strap in bordo will work well with a double-breasted grey suit and sky blue shirt. It works equally well with dark denim.
