Gucci Suede Loafers

I'm not the biggest Gucci fan, but these suede loafers sure are beautiful.

Shop Mark McNairy

You can now get your fix of awesome shoes, fun shirts, ties, outerwear and more from the Mark McNairy New Amsterdam online shop. Here's a sampling of the goods:

Brown Grain Loafers. I particularly like the textured leather and the white rubber soles. The perfect weekend shoe as far as I'm concerned.

The Navy Suede Longwing Brogue sports the popular red sole and is the perfect pair to match with khakis. The details running around the shoe also keep it from being just another run-of-the-mill brogue.

Two variations of the Oxford Fun Shirt - a combination of various oxford cloths that result in a fun, rather irreverent, version of the traditional oxford shirt. I wouldn't mind wearing these, actually. When Opening Ceremony came out with something similar to this (in an assortment of pastel colours) a few years back, I remember being completely amazed by it.

Aēsop Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream

I've been taking my skincare regimen a bit seriously lately. The latest addition to the products I use is Aēsop's Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream. It effectively moisturises and smells like a dream, thanks to the trio of mandarin, lemon and tangerine rind.

Studio Homme

It's only recently that I've discovered the pleasures of online shopping. Having said that, the number of online purchases I've made are still quite few and have been limited to items such as footwear, accessories and DVDs (I'm wary when it comes to clothes because I like trying them on). I have a feeling that's going to change though.

Recently, I stumbled upon Studio Homme - a Parisian treasure trove of goods from labels such as Kitsuné, Pierre Hardy, Acne, Common Projects, Mismo and more. The offerings are varied and the styles carried are all spot on. And that 20 per cent discount for purchases made outside the EU? A definite plus.

Here are a couple of things that caught my eye:

Kitsuné sneakers

Trémoulière "Seymour" bag

Isaac Reina A4 leather folder

Pierre Hardy smartphone case

Anderson's green leather belt

Acne card holder
