Yay or Nay: Undercover Lace-Up Jeans

By Will Reid on January 29th, 2009

90680_1.jpgDenim has been revolutionised in recent times and the last few years have seen denim be used by menswear designers to make a true statement. Whether skinny, twisted, acid bright faded, torn, studded, boot-leg: some might say that ‘jeans maketh man.’ And they wouldn’t be far wrong.

So, what would these jeans say about a male? They lace up (with white leather might I add) the side and turn up at the bottom. The have a diamond pattern detail on the back pockets and come from one of the coolest labels of the moment.

Yay or Nay

On Jak et Jil they’re agog over a pair of Givenchy ghillie brogues with added buckles, lacing and straps. Ghillie brogues are worn by bagpipers, members of marching bands and are an essential part of Highland dress; I’ve always loved the contrast between the feminine lacing and the masculine brogue. I like what Richardo Tisci has done with the classic shoe, and with a careful bit of crafting you could easily recreate the look.
Loake do a great ghillie brogue, but if you pick up a pair intended for marching they will have a thicker sole which is a footwear trend making waves in menswear at the moment.
