A Gentleman’s Dress Shoes

Another adapted post.  Sage advice for gentlemen on choosing shoes.

Yes, every man should have at least one good pair of BLACK dress shoes.
Like these:

These are from Cole Haan — the Cassady Captoe II, to be specific.  Leather.  Black.  Lace up.
Men’s dress shoes have LACES.  Loafers or “slip-on” shoes do NOT go with your well-chosen, tailored suit.  Ever.  Grey trousers, blue sport coat, tie and possibly slip-on leather shoes.  But NOT with a suit.
If you are escorting your girlfriend to a wedding, you NEED a pair of shoes like these.  This particular pair will run you between $100 and $140 depending on where you buy.  That’s a great deal.  I tried a pair on last night and they are comfortable, classy, and will make any suit look great.  Cole Haan is a solid brand and they make quality products.  So, ditch the square-toed loafers you wore with a suit in college — get these! Wear them with a suit to a wedding, a job interview, or anywhere else that calls for dress clothes.
