The Find: shoelaces (no, seriously, these ones are awesome)
There are a number of shoe options for men: fancy brogues, casual brogues, wingtips, chukka boots, godawful fur atrocities, creepers, oxfords, spectators, loafers and more. What there aren’t a lot of are shoelace options for our dressier shoes. We recently stumbled upon David Barclay’s Stolen Riches, a Toronto-based online shoelace manufacturer who seemingly grew tired of white laces getting dirty and black, brown and grey laces looking like, um, everyone else’s laces. Right now, his creations are only made for three to four and five to six pairs of eyelets, but there’s word of boot and sneaker laces coming down the pipeline. Just like at Pitti Uomo this year and Dunhill last year. We’re just happy to have a local dealer who can take care of our penchant for ostentatious colour. $14.50.
