J.L. Rocha, Elegant Mexican Tradition

Mexico’s fashion market has been blooming for the past couple of years. Luxury brands like Dolce & Gabbana opened up their doors to Mexican fashionistas and charming towns like Tulum have become the preferred destination for the worldly fashion obsessed. Not to mention that, up and coming Mexican designers and traditional craftsmanship are starting to get notice by the international fashion crowd.

As Mexican, all of this makes me extremely proud of mi pais. For this reason, I’m introducing a brand new section on the blog called Made in Mexico, to celebrate and highlight exceptional Mexican talent and design. To get things rolling, I would like to present to you J.L. Rocha fine shoes.

J.L. Rocha, Elegant Mexican Tradition

J.L Rocha shoes are the result of three generations of Mexican heritage; consequently, they have learned the craft from expert cobblers to design original pieces with the utmost respect for tradition.

Sidenote: If there were someone that knows about family business would be me. My father opened up his own restaurant after working at my grandmother’s eatery for many years; during my high school years I used to help him out… Is that why I have an entrepreneur personality? Damn you Dad! #kidding

The first shoe collection is made from calfskin; the best compact and extra fine grain material and their designs are updated takes on the classics. As you can see in the sophisticated brown suede Chelsea boot, I’m wearing. – I know I recently said to stay away from suede boots. However, fashion rules are made to be broken.

Everybody knows that Chelsea boots are every gentleman’s essential; they will always look great on you, rain or shine. The strap around and punctuating stitch detailing throughout this J.L. Rocha Chelsea boot brings out new life to this style staple. – Bien hecho chicos!
