Elevate HIS Style with Luxury Goods from Beckett Simonon
As a personal stylist for women, my blog posts tend to focus on style advice for women. However, when I find something I simply adore for the fellas, you can be sure you are going to hear about it. Currently, I’m obsessed with Beckett Simonon. From the business model to the value and of course, the product, there are an array of reasons to discover this beloved brand.
Here’s how it works: You head over to the site and peruse the offerings. Beckett Simonon focuses on high quality leather goods. The selection tends to include shoes, belts and bags. When you find the pair of shoes you want, for example, you order them on the site. THEN artisans at a family owned factory in Colombia will make you a pair. No inventory sitting around. No mass-produced shoes that may or may not suit you. No extra charges. They’ll take a little longer to arrive, but it’s worth it. Each pair is guaranteed with a reasonable refund policy. This structure is good for you and good for business.
A side note: Yes, of course! These can work for those who identify as male and folks who prefer to wear shoes designed for men. Just be aware of sizing when you order.
5 More Reasons You Need Beckett Simonon Shoes In Your Life
They are gorgeous.
The first thing that you’ll notice about Beckett Simonon shoes and boots is how incredibly beautiful they are. Whether you are deep into that sort of thing (like my husband and me) or just have a passing interest, the quality of every pair of these shoes is unmistakable. Poplin Style has been around for over five years. That means five years of free or discounted products coming my way, folks offering to guest post and all sorts of other “opportunities.” Because my primary source of income is through my personal styling services, I have the luxury of being able to refuse most of these because my primary goal is you, Dear Reader. Will you like it? Do I love it? Is it worth our time and money? When I had the chance to score a pair of Beckett Simonon shoes for my stylish, creative, fashion-conscious, designer-photographer husband, I was elated. Because, really, they simply are beautiful.
2. They are good for the world.
Purchasing from ethical brands used to be a “nice to have.” Now, it’s a “must have” for many Poplin clients and readers. Beckett Simonon produces each pair in family-owned factories in Colombia and Portugal. Transparency is a key value of the company, so if you have questions, the brand has answers.
Pre-ordering means that the company only produces what will be sold. Therefore, the strain on the environment is decreased as this limits waste. Less storage is needed, too. Each pair is handmade by skilled craftspeople who work in ethical conditions. Whether you are purchasing a pair as a gift or suggesting it to the one of your favorite people, it feels good to invest in this company.
3. They are great for your pocketbook.
Now that you are looking at all these beautiful photos, you are probably a little concerned about the price point. That’s a valid concern. Fortunately, Beckett Simonon has opted to make beautiful shoes well and for an affordable price. How does the company do it? It takes a little longer for your pre-ordered pair. As I mentioned, cutting down on storing inventory or having shoes that go unsold has a very real impact on the price.
4. They are distinctive without being trendy.
Welcome to the eternal struggle for menswear. In my experience, most people are interested in pieces that feel special. For some, loud and flashy is desirable. For others, not as much. If there’s a fella in your life that wants something that will last for years without the danger of going out of style, this is the place to be.
5. They are impeccably made.
The soles aren’t glued down. The leather isn’t cheaply made. The color isn’t just a little bit off. All of those details that just don’t feel right aren’t part of this equation. When Justin’s pair of shoes arrived, I swooned, even though I will not be the one wearing them. You know that pair of heels that you bought and discovered later that they are simply not comfortable? But you can’t bring yourself to part with them because they are so beautiful. So you keep them and secretly consider putting them on display just to look at them each day? This is the male version of that.
I’ve always been a big fan of purchasing shoes as gifts. This is probably the time to let him in on the present ahead of time so he can see the awesomeness as it unfolds. As always, let me know what you both think!
