Q: Dear Magnificent Bastard: My husband has requested a pair of "cool" casual shoes for Christmas. In the past he has worn Campers but I am wondering if they are
post-peak. Any thoughts, suggestions?
A: Camper has become basic, so don't worry about them going post-peak. (We love 'em, incidentally.) If you want to turn the style
dial a click or two to the right, and have him wear something a bit more anonymous, try out a pair of Ballys (top) or Sabelts (bottom). Bally just oozes cool, and Sabelt has a
pedigree in Formula One footwear. Let us know how he deals with a shift from Camper. They can be a hard habit to break.
