Elements of Style May 2013

Jill Newman

Santoni’s antiqued Quebec oxford ($690) and Shipley boot ($795) exhibit the sort of soft patina that usually results from extensive wear and care. Yet the Italian shoemaker spends a painstaking three weeks repeatedly dying and brushing the leather to create the warm, rough finish of each new piece of footwear. The leather heels and soles are stone-washed and hammered to achieve an equally aged look—and more comfortable pliability.

Ralph Lauren relaxes the stiffness of the classic sport coat with its Black Label Denim version in crinkled cotton ($1,295), which pairs perfectly with a soft suede Western shirt ($1,995). The textured materials appear comfortably broken in, yet the garments’ tailored lines lend polish to either a pair of jeans or slacks. Ralph Lauren, 212.606.2100, www.ralphlauren.com —J.N.

Like a seasoned traveler, this handsome duffel by the Italian leather-goods brand Marsèll dispenses with unnecessary frills in favor of a convenient combination of functionality and style. Constructed from creased and washed leather and simply shaped, the bag ($1,595) is left virtually unadorned to achieve a clean, sporty look. Marsèll, available at Barneys New York, 212.826.8900, www.barneys.com —J.N.
