Aaron Eckhart in Beverly Hills

Posted on September 19, 2013

You guys, look at Aaron’s widdle shoes!

Aaron Eckhart out and about in Beverly Hills, California. on September 18, 2013.

Look at us, pretending like there’s some sort of fashion reason for posting these pictures!

Pardon us for a moment, but …. woof.

Anyway, the shoes: Tom’s on record as thinking saddle shoes are for children in the 1950s and/or Peanuts characters. But it seemed like every damn male at New York Fashion Week was sporting them and by the end of it, Tom’s resistance had worn down a little. And it’s exactly this brown suede style that convinced him. Now we’re both fighting over who gets to buy this pair. And since Tom already won the fights for Daniel Craig’s shoes and Robert Pattinson’s jacket, it’s time to let Lorenzo have this one.

We swear we don’t really fight over who gets to buy something a celebrity’s wearing. Okay, maybe a couple times a year. Tops.

    you deserve the shoes. i love the look

  • Latin Buddy

    I have the Duckie Browne cognac/navy colored leather saddle shoes. LOVE

  • Diego!

    I love the overall look but he should have and wear longer hair, this haircut and beard ads him 10 years his senior!

  • I am wearing b&w saddle shoes right. now. So obviously I’m pro. And…for other reasons.

  • MEOW, this Kitten likes what she sees. She also likes how pic no.3 seems to have him and both of his notable shoes slightly off the ground. And for what it is worth, I say bring on the saddle shoes, let there be cute styles for the ladies too, please.

    • RebeccaKW

      Cole Haan has some that I love. I’m not sure I can spend $200 on them, but I keep going online and drooling over them.

  • flamingoNW

    Woof is right. Dang. Run towards me, sweetheart, that’s right. Right over here….. I love the shoes, too.

  • Jacquelyn

    It’s a nice look but I think he needs to shave.

    • Clueless_Jock

      Yes, e shouldn’t hide his stunning jawline behind a beard.

      • largishbearishAtlish

        ono you diidn’t! a beard IS a reason…(tho the one pictured needs time to grow out into a nice thick rich beard)…sigh

  • AvaLehra

    Woof is right! Papi.

    • Denise Alden

      I believe it’s “!Ay, papi!” 🙂

  • Rand Ortega

    Buster Browns! On Grizzly Adams! That’s something you don’t see everyday!

  • alyce1213

    Pro saddle shoes! There’s great pair for women and other shoes (for men and women) at Re-Mix:

  • I have grey and white saddle shoes—they’re TOPS! Go ‘head, Aaron Eckhart. Show off that twee.

  • formerlyAnon

    Gorgeous hands & forearms. (Yes, Aaron, 80% of your upper body gym hours are wasted on me. Try not to cry.)

    Also, nice little t-shirt fluttering up from the belt line shot.

    Aaand, yes. That’s my takeaway, shallow denizen of the Internet that I am.

    • Hands and forearms are my weakness!

      • formerlyAnon

        I blame drummers.

        ETA: well, let’s be honest. Also, guitarists, pianists, and guys who have just fortuitously inherited small wrists and long fingers. There’s blame to go around.

        • mmmmmm….drummers….
          and mechanics. gimme hands with grit around the cuticle, and that signature working man roughness….

          • formerlyAnon

            It’s the forearm muscle that the working man develops, for me . . .

      • largishbearishAtlish

        but there is no furr on them 🙁 sigh

        • formerlyAnon

          That’s not important to me, you can have my share of the pettable ones. (ETA: pet-able?)

  • The beard negates the youth of the shoes, and together they make him the most attractive I’ve seen him. Cover that dimpled chin up, and I suddenly go from ambivalent to “humina humina awooogah.”

  • GorgeousThings

    Aaron’s looking positively Jackman-esque today! Woof indeed.
    But those shoes? I can’t. I’m with Tom – total Lucy van Pelt shoes.

  • formerlyAnon

    P.s. Went back to look at Pattinson’s jacket & Craig’s shoes. I must opine that you, Tom, are still left owing Lorenzo a little something.

    • Fanny_Trollope

      I agree. Lorenzo wins the next round in advance.

      • formerlyAnon

        Well, unless he was willing to barter a bit. When you work and live together, there must be possibilities.

        After all, it seems a bit drastic that fashion bloggers should have something so vital as the next disputed sartorial purchase predetermined.

    • homofascist

      The jacket ALONE is at least two are three ‘owes’…

      • homofascist

        Also, let me say, woof.

  • Samuel Joesph Donovan

    I have a pair like this from Cole Haan that have bright blue soles. Love them.

  • decormaven

    Ooh, those shoes are great! Buy them today and enjoy, enjoy.

  • Amy Wilson

    I have been trying to find the perfect pair of saddle oxfords for myself for over a year. The search continues…

  • I love those shoes – and I think tone-on-tone navy would be awesome if either of you fellas wanted to sport a pair. Casual but not as casual as Vans or Converse.

  • jw_ny

    I love those shoes! I’d totally wear ’em.

    That is one ugly tee tho, but dang if it doesn’t wear him well…;)

  • Meredith

    you guys….are cute.

  • ecallaw1977

    I bought a pair that looks just like these for my husband from Johnston & Murphy.

  • LaSylphide

    Don’t care what he’s wearing, Aaron always = ‘Hoooo Baby!’

  • MilaXX

    Cute, now I want a pair as well.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Those are great shoes, but I was forced to wear saddle shoes during my catholic girlhood and I still have not gotten over it. So, for me, no…but for Aaron and you, okay. And yes, woof!!

  • Shawn EH

    And his big everything else! Woof indeed!

  • lobsterlen

    Are you saving anything for Sausage Friday?

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    When I was in high school the main market for saddle shoes was cheerleaders. I am scarred. Probably not as much as a Catholic school girlhood, but scarred nonetheless.

  • conniemd

    He does have him some man boobs.

  • crash1212

    Love him. Love the look. Love the shoes.

  • Much as I love Aaron Eckhart and much as I love beards, I’m not sure I love this beard on Aaron Eckhart. It’s kind of a crime to cover up that chin and jawline.

  • suzinrva

    Bass saddle bucks are the bomb, baby!

  • Aurumgirl

    My husband will be pleased to know he called that trend a while ago. His favourite shoes are his “grown up” saddle shoes, sleek but comfy. He has a couple of colour combos, a pair like the ones Aaron’s wearing and a dark grey/navy pair. To be fair, kids haven’t worn those shoes since the sixties, so they are fair game for adult shoes. And they look a lot better than sneakers.

  • E. D.

    Hoo boy he is hot. Even hotter with longer hair though.

  • macwell

    OMG – you guys with the faux fashion stuff. The man looks delicious and that’s all that matters. Drink it in guys – drink it in….LOL!! 😉

  • Erica_Vuitton

    He looks completely unrecognizable with the beard! That’s how I love a man, with a beard, in jeans and a tee with some fab shoes.
