FashionMenswear Attended Micam Shoe Expo in Italy
FashionMenswear took part of this year's MICAM Shoe Expo in Italy and announced that this season's selection is sure to exceed their customer's expectations.
Reflecting the marriage of Italian craftsmanship and world class design, Fashion Menswear has assembled a collection geared to the fashion conscious American male ranging from the classic mens shoes styles to the decidedly avant garde.
Giovanni Marquez, CEO of FashionMenswear, would like to remind consumers of what makes Italian shoes the benchmark of quality and style.
It all starts with the design. Menswear is based on tradition and an enduring array of classic designs from which variations and interpretations are built upon
The same is true of mens shoes. Although Oxford lace-ups, loafers, the Derby etc. are the staples of mens footwear, new technologies and materials allow us to re-design the basics and create stunning variations sure to please the most jaded customer. Mens modern wardrobe requires, at times, a different note for the perfect complement. Exotic leathers, weaves and stamping, to name a few, are some of the techniques and materials that can further the look of contemporary mens shoes.
Each design requires a different sole, method of construction and leather(s). These choices create shoes with unique character defining their use: for the office, for entertaining, for a night out or simply for casual wear.
"It all starts with a thorough assessment of the current trends in mens clothing-the fabrics, colors, textures and silhouettes of the season" says Giovanni Marquez.
FashionMenswear is uniquely qualified to decode the fashion zeitgeist when it comes to menswear. "We have been curating mens fashion for 42 years and our customer base expects the best the world has to offer" says Giovanni Marquez. Our fashion instincts have been honed to anticipate what the customers will want season after season.
The selection of the finest leather is central to the success and impact of a pair of shoes. Only the first choice leathers are used in the manufacturing of Giovanni Marquez shoes.
A design rises or falls on the strength of its materials. This is an area where FashionMenswear we would never compromise.
Giovanni Marquez shoes are always cut by hand ensuring that the artisan can match the skins and cut only from the best part of each hide.
After the leather pieces are cut, they are sewn together following the design pattern. Many different styling techniques are followed to achieve special detailing such as contrast piping, color blocking or unusual leather combinations. Each design requires its unique approach.
To shape the leather one relies in the last (the form that shapes the leather). Whether you are aiming for a rounded, square or pointed toe, the stitched together leather (the upper) is then stretched over the last where it remains for two weeks. This allows the leather to "memorize" the shape of the last allowing the shoe hold its shape even after extensive wear. Needless to say, the Italian mens footwear industry has the best selection of lasts and is constantly innovating in this area.
Lastly, the shoe is cleaned, polished, buffed or brushed. Artisans hand-apply color and burnish the leather to the desired effect. The shoes are then stuffed and packaged for distribution.
Whether you are looking for Italian craftsmanship and style in footwear and accessories, or the finest in mens clothes, FashionMenswear is always traveling the world to bring our customers the latest in mens fashion and footwear ensuring they look their best. From formal suits to sneakers and everything in between, the staff at FashionMenswear.com and GiovanniMarquez.com is uniquely qualified to assist its customer base with their sartorial needs.
