Whether you work in a super-corporate office setting or in a more laidback environment, dressing sharply for work should always be top of mind. As they say, “dress for the job you want, not for the job you have.”
If you’re more of a corner-office-with-a-view type, a well-tailored black suit is always an essential. Grab a nice wool coat to layer on to and from work. For more business-casual office settings, versatile separates like a grey blazer over dark denim or slacks are key. So are solid men’s dress shirts that fit close to the body but not overly tight.
Stocking your closet with versatile workwear pieces that mix and match well together is really the foundation of a great work-to-dinner wardrobe. It’s all about sticking to neutral tones, timeless fits, but feeling free to throw in a pop of color here and there for interest!
Last but not least, don’t forget the right work shoes! A good pair of classic oxfords or loafers is your best bet for finishing off that highly successful office attire.
With its modern, rebellious take on American style, Band of Outsiders footwear is a favorite of the sartorially savvy set. Its preppy-meets-luxe take on loafers, boots, oxfords and sandals gives a fresh twist to beloved American classics.
Founded by former Hollywood agent Scott Sternberg in 2004, Band of Outsiders is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after boutique brands in the business. Its strong sense of nostalgia mixed with a decidedly modern vibe has definitely struck a chord with the fashion obsessed near and far.

J.D. Fisk is a men's footwear brand launched in 2010 by the established women's footwear brand, Dolce Vita. Staying true to time-honored Americana style yet inspired by the U.K. punk movement of the '70s and '80s, J.D. Fisk is classic style reinvented.
Traditional oxfords are given unexpected pop-color soles, classic saddle shoes are enhanced with modern canvas details, and perforated wingtips with rugged lug outsoles for an edgier look.
Rooted in traditional craftsmanship, the product often features burnished leathers and Goodyear® welting characteristically found in handmade shoes. J.D. Fisk provides designer styling and quality at prices within reach.
Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, the holiday season is officially upon us. That means holiday parties and festivities are just around the corner!
To get you started on thinking about your holiday outfits, we’ve rounded up some of our party-ready picks from Donald J Pliner.
For the fellas, a pair of suede loafers in one of the season’s hottest colors, wine, is a great way to add some color to an outfit. If you want to go more classic, try a simple ankle boot or a dapper monkstrap shoe with a pair of crisp trousers.
For the ladies, we love combining a little black dress with a pair of sexy knee-high boots! A pair of dressy flats is also a comfy way to add ladylike appeal to any party attire. Try pairing any of these with sheer black tights for an even dressier feel.
With more than 125 years of shoemaking under their belt, Josef Seibel is one of Europe’s longest established shoe manufacturers. This family-owned business started in a small German village and is now in its fourth generation under Carl-August Seibel.
All of their sandals, clogs, shoes and boots are expertly handcrafted using the Josef Seibel comfort concepts. Using only the best quality leathers and crafted using traditional methods, most of Josef Seibel’s shoes are still produced within their own factories in Europe.
Hand stitching is a core feature in the footwear offered by Josef Seibel. Traditional hand stitching offers increased flexibility, increased durability, and an original appearance. Josef Seibel likes to say that it gives their shoes a broken in feel right out of the box.
Strobel construction is also another core feature of Josef Seibel footwear. The word "Strobel" describes the specific way of stitching upper leathers and lining to the insole of footwear. The Strobel construction offers a much higher flexibility and strength than many other types of construction utilized in the shoe industry today. As Josef Seibel said, "Our name on the outside, our knowledge on the inside".
After more than 125 years of shoe-making experience, we’d say that’s a lot of knowledge that you can see and feel with every pair of Josef Seibel shoes! Experience it for yourself this holiday season!
