As a company who prides itself on finding ways for you to stand out - we got to brainstorming and landed on the thought that in a room full of men in black tuxes, khaki two-pieces or navy blazers, the one who gets noticed is he who wears the coolest shoes! Organized by the suits they complement we’ve put together a list of shoes bound to elicit covetous glances from men and women alike!
When the invitation says “black tie,” opportunities for expression are scarce.
Option 1: The Black Leather Wholecut
If you’re going the traditional route, aim for clean and minimal by swapping out your workday cap-toes for a pair of wholecut oxfords (meaning: they’re culled from a single piece of leather).
Option 2: The Black Velvet Slipper
Feeling a little saucy? Get your Hefner on in a pair of embroidered evening slippers!
If a man owns one suit, there’s a good chance it’s navy. Which is why non-black-tie weddings tend to be veritable navy-suit summits.
Option 1: The Light Brown Brogue
In a sea of brown shoes, details count. Find a brogue with ornate detailing and stark, rich honey tones.
Option 2: The Dark Brown Double Monk
Prefer a darker brown? Consider overcompensating for a conservative hue with some texture.
A summer wedding standby that’s great for staying cool but middling on the creativity front. Showing some ankle and pairing with an uber-jaunty kick will take care of that.
Option 1: The Brown Horsebit Loafer
This recognizable style has a certain cache that screams rich. It’s an effortless and versatile shoe with the character of Italian style.
Option 2: The White Sneaker
Consider this a (slightly) more grown-up version of that whole tux-and-Converse thing, which has been done to death and is frankly a bit gauche. Do mind the red wine, though.
Grey is the chameleon of suiting colors: depending on the hue (we suggest veering lighter), it’ll pair with just about any color and style of dress shoe a man can own.
Option 1: The Black Penny Loafer
Clean-cut and classic. Just make the sure the man in them matches suit — literally and figuratively.
Option 2: The Oxblood Tassel Loafer
When the answer to “Brown or black?” is “either,” as is the case here, that means there is also a third option in play: oxblood.
Headed to a destination wedding? Leave the wools and cotton-blends at home, and reach instead for sun-friendly linen in an appropriately pastel tone.
Option 1: The Brown Tassel Loafer
Most penny and tassel loafers are too stuffy for the tropics. Go moccasin-style with your loafer with a soft sheepskin lining and breezy low cut, painting you as a man decidedly put-together.
Option 2: The Woven Moccasin
The sand will run through them like a sieve.
