Let’s hear it for the boys! This week’s show is a celebration of stylish details for men, courtesy of master cobbler Tamas “Zen” Pomazi of Minnesota-based Greenwich Vintage. He and business partner Max Miller have created a beautiful empire, dedicated to exquisitely restored and resoled vintage shoes, as well as limited edition collaboration garments & accessories. GV is a one-stop shop for the impeccably dressed man who appreciates great design, and on this week’s show, you’ll hear from Zen about how his dad’s vintage shoes became his new career, the colorful Greenwich Vintage signature soles, a few of Zen’s personal fashion icons, and how there comes a time when every man needs to embrace classic style and “step his grown man game up.”
We couldn’t agree more.

Plus, Dane and I dish on our own favorite footwear (as well as some guilty pleasure shoes! shhhhh…), AND tracks from this week’s new Phosphorescent and Low albums! So tune in, turn up, and ring in spring with a brand new Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!

Some of Sew & Tell’s Favorite Footwear

DJ Marie’s Everydays (the shoes she wears all the time)

Hunter Wellies

Frye Melissa Zip

Brown Suede Cowboy Boots

A summer favorite – because sometime you just need to sparkle. : )

DJ Marie’s Wishlist

I *need* a pair of Nisolo flats and/or sandals for the summer. Look how beautiful these basics are!

Sew & Tell alum Samantha Pleet just came out with a gorgeous collab line of boots with Wolverine. Not only are these beautiful shoes, each style is named after trail-blazing ladies – how cool is that!

The Earhart

The Blixen

DJ Marie’s Guilty Pleasure

Don’t judge! I swear I don’t wear them anymore…

Dane’s Everydays

The beautiful, versatile Timberland Earthkeeper 2.0

J. Crew Desert Boot

The whole collection

Dane’s Wishlist

A John Varvatos Black Wingtip Buck

Dane’s Guilty Pleasure

Adidas Marshall Arts shoes… just throw them out, already, Dane!

If you’re a Pin-head like we are, you’ll definitely want to check out the newly renovated (and Dane-curated) BreakThru Radio Pinterest account! And don’t forget to follow me, DJ Marie, as well; you’ll find regular style inspiration pins, recipes, and generally gorgeous everything on both pages!

Entertaining Odds & Ends
*Check out the Nicholas Kirkwood F/W 2013 Collection – ready for MoMA, no? Dane’s fave is his take on the classic tuxedo flat, and I’m mesmerized by the beautiful velvet pumps with gold heels & fishtail-esque mesh detail. What’s your favorite? Share below in the comments, or on the Sew & Tell Facebook page!
*The Museum at FIT is running not one, but TWO great footwear exhibits, one on boots, the other on shoes. You’ll get a up-close tour through the history of shoes, and see some amazing examples of work from past designers! But hurry – both exhibits close in early April.
*And check out this video of J. Crew’s creative director & fashion darling, Jenna Lyons, who gives you a guided tour of her personal shoe collection (289 pairs!)
