Sole Man: Michael Carl
Every Shoe Library needs a Sole Man. To celebrate our new Men’s Shoe Salon, we’ve asked a few gentlemen of New York to take our soles for a spin. We’ll be meeting with one of them each week.
To kick things off, Vanity Fair’s Michael Carl (or known as the scathingly witty, bagel-hating, travels-with-unicorn @CarlsCrush) takes Fratelli Rosetti plum lace-ups to Milan and Paris Fashion Week. We caught up with him to get his men’s shoe perspective. Naturally, it’s in 140-characters or less.
5th/58th: Do you match or contrast your shoes to our look?
Michael Carl: I do match my shoes to my look but more importantly my mood, I rarely wear black shoes and, if I do, it’s probably best not to talk to me.
5th/58th: Sock Preference?
MC: I like a festive sock, but currently am trending towards no sock.
5th/58th: Do you own more… sneakers, oxfords, or monkstraps?
MC: Sneakers, however I just discovered the monk and went straight into double, so a closet full of brogues is in my future.
5th/58th: Have you worn Fratelli Rosetti before?
MC: First time.
5th/58th: And during what sort of mood would you now wear these Rosettis?
MC: When I feel I need a little something to make me feel special
