What Shoes to wear? part 3

Classic styles are a must when looking perfect and dapper. This does not mean stuffy and traditional shoes but elegant and classy styles that will lead people to compliment you on them. And don't be fooled into thinking that when people have said "wow, they're interesting" that means they think your curly toed designer shoes look good, they just need to bring them up but without hurting your feelings.

I have put below some pictures of great shoe styles using Crockett & Jones and Loakes. Similar styles can be found in Chruch's and Barker's but I actual use both C&J and Loakes in my business so know their styles and designs better so have included them solely.

Below are a selection of your start up cornerstone designs. Get these first before designer ones as these will be right for all occasions and never go out of style. Also most designer shoes look ridiculous and should be avoided at all costs. Decent designer shoes are around but will cost more. Your first formal shoes should all be black calf leather. So please ignore the brown colour of the brogue below and think black.

Plain or soft pattern
