Spring starts now, and if you’re looking for one easy switch to put you in the mood, we recommend starting from the ground up. This month, it’s all about the new navy shoe: the seasonal wardrobe update that works for every guy.
The deep blue that we now know as navy got its name from the British Royal Navy, who adopted indigo-dyed uniforms in the mid-18th century. The color caught on — and while it’s often associated with authority (think police and army uniforms around the world), it’s also the color of denim and casual wear. Recently, though, navy has been enjoying an elevation in status. A navy tux is now an acceptable alternative to black tie at fancy events, and this year, even Royal Ascot has relaxed its rules to allow navy morning suits in the Royal Enclosure.
What makes navy so popular? After wearing black or dark brown boots all winter, a navy shoe hits the sweet spot: a fresh spring neutral that goes with everything, and takes you from formal to casual in a heartbeat.
If it’s spring, it must be time for nautical dressing: an enduring menswear trend that works for everyone. We love a nautical flavor here at Dockers®, of course — the original Dockers® logo, inspired by British longshoremen, even includes an anchor. Make it look modern when you layer a printed resort shirt over a tee and pair with neutral khakis and navy shoes. Try the Collins casual loaferor the Ferris casual loafer for effortless weekend dressing.
