There is nothing like a new, fresh and clean pair of bucs.  They traditionally came in just two colors, dusty, often called ‘dirty’, or white.  But today, there are so many more colors and styles from which to choose.   Nubuck is top-grain cattle leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside, to give a slight nap, producing a velvet-like surface. It is similar to suede. Differing in that suede is created from the inner side of a hide, whereas nubuck is created from the outer side of a hide, giving it more strength and thickness along with a fine grain. It is generally a bit more expensive than suede, but well worth the little extra.

There is also nothing like a beat-to-hell pair of bucs.  They almost tell a story of the wearer; where they’ve been, what they’ve had split on them, a bit of a badge of honor to some. Comfort is key here. Bucs all feature a rubber sole, which make a significant difference if you’ve on your feet all evening, with a stiff cocktail in your hand.


With it’s Classic New England take on preppy, the Derby 100, having a suede upper, calfskin lining, cushioned foot bed and Goodyear construction, offer a great flair to any occasion, and are made in the U.S. Navy and Kelly Green are always a hit !

This great collaboration is beyond cool.  Made in the U.K., this shoe features contrast laces and welt.  Here, with perforated and pinked (oft called ‘perfed” and ‘pinked’) details, a wingtip buc can add to your traditional style quotient.  Imagine these with a plaid short.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.
