The Bean Boot Project: One Man's Style Guest Post

One Man's Style may be the best curated blog on the internet.  No joke.  Andy's photo essays are the definition of efficent and his format of one men's style pic, one chick and two randoms per post is actually kind of genius when you think about it.  His own posts and guest posts (one of which I was honored to submit) are constant visual inspiration and actually helped push me towards creating my own "inspiration board".  I've had the pleasure to get to know Andy a little through email and I look forward to collaborating more with him in the future (be on the lookout for quite a large undertaking myself, Andy and a bunch of other bloggers have coming up).  One Man's Style is just guy and his style.  Thank god for us Andy's got style to spare.

Andy's take on the Bean boot was very analytical.  Here he shares with us his own sense of how to style the boot in ways that are both a nod to the past and a nod to the present, not to mention provides us with some picture representations as well.

"From one of the most iconic brands comes a boot that has been time tested and worn though out the ages. The Bean boot has been reinterpreted many times by those trying to shed a new light on the shoe, but this seems to prove difficult as the original always shines through. Wear them with your flannels and jeans for that Sunday hike or wear them on that rainy Tuesday with the gray tweed suit your going to be rocking to work over the next couple months. The boot's classic aesthetic worn with your modern touch is undeniable. Pick up a pair and wear then until they burst at the seams, because as we have seen from Max (All Plaid Out) and Foster (A Restless Transplant), you can then send them back to Bean and they will come back to you fresh as the day you took them from the box."
