Teaming up with legendary sandal makers Birkenstock, Los Angeles based art publisher Arkitip and San Francisco based artist Aaron De La Cruz, we bring you the 55DSL x Birkenstock Monterey Sandal.

“Birkenstock stands for a long tradition in comfort shoe making with high quality standards. 55DSL is a young street wear brand with a strong credibility. The combination of the two brands is an unexpected and creative statement for the market”, says Rudy J. Haslbeck, Director Product & Design of Birkenstock.


Welcome to Maketh The Man, a lifestyle and travel blog by Callum Watt and Anton Welcome.

Maketh The Man launched in 2010 as a home to showcase male jewellery. From the best chunky necklaces to our favourite signet rings. Whilst the Mark Twain quote does say "Clothes maketh the man", we actually think its the finer details that make an outfit really pop. Hence why we decided to focus our attention on how to accessorize your wardrobe.

We quickly expanded our coverage to include all accessories from the best footwear, to the most stylish bags and pocket squares.

Today Maketh The Man has grown to be one of the UKs top male lifestyle blogs covering a range of different categories. From the greatest holiday destinations to the tastiest cocktail or finest whisky recommendations, with a healthy dose of technology and grooming thrown in.
