Classic Menswear | The White Buck Shoes

No article of footwear better typified the postwar trend toward relaxed style than American white bucks. Their slightly scuffed appearance lent them that lived-in character so characteristic of the country’s natural-shoulder fashion. Uniquely American in their understated temperament, the white buckskin oxford lace-up with its red rubber soles first served as comfortable summer accompaniment to resort clothes worn in the early 1930s. Later on, resourceful commuters discovered that these comfy suedes comported themselves equally well on steamy summer pavements under lightweight gabardine, seersucker, or tropical worsted suits. -Dressing the Man: Mastering the Art of Permanent Fashion
