Just because you don’t want to dress up and go to the Renaissance Fair for Steampunk Days doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate a little brass, leather, and the bustier-ed Victorian era hotties that go along with the genre. Japanese artist Haruo Suekichi decided to blur the lines between form and function and started making steampunk watches. They aren’t exactly practical, but neither are bustiers and we still love those. Crunch Gear sat down with Suekichi in his Tokyo studio to figure out what makes him tick.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
