Now, what do I wear?

Dressing for formal events can be a little tricky. Black tie and business casual are just a few of the dress codes that serve as guidelines for appropriate attire.

So, how does a gentleman choose the right footwear for formal events?

For the Best Man

In modern weddings, the receptions are usually held in either indoor or outdoor locations. For formal receptions, pair your bespoke suit with patent leather oxfords.

For the Employee of the Year

If your office party is a formal event, like a dinner party for example, pick the appropriate formal wear. Patterned leather derby shoes can give your look a timeless appeal.

For the Connoisseur

If you're a regular at the art gallery or the jazz club, express your fine taste with footwear too. Monk shoes are an elegant addition to your wardrobe.


For the Man about town

If you attend social events regularly, go for a pair of eye-catching loafers. Loafers can be versatile, enhancing your look while paired with different styles of attire.

For the Traveller

Some styles are simply universal. That applies to footwear too. Make moccasins a part of your travel wardrobe to be dressed appropriately for events around the world.
