Wanting to look like the next Bond? Well, that’s easy. Dressing for formal occasions is far simpler than you think. We often get overwhelmed by the pressures of how ‘smart’ does one go? For guys, you cannot beat a tailored suit paired with a crisp white shirt and polished shoes. There are guidelines to follow for formal occasions, wearing the appropriate shoes is quite high on the list, and our formal collection of shoes covers all personality types. We do urge you to always wear a clean suit, going for a more tapered look is a season trend and always make sure you feel comfortable ( comfort=confidence). We have taken the stance of choosing black shoes (they do go with anything) but fear not, as most of these styles come in brown too.
Hudson London Indus Brogues in Black Leather
The all time classic brogue with wingtip detailing. These are the formal shoes you pull out for any smart occasion, easy to style and most of all comfortable. The added detailing creates more of an impact.
Ask the Missus Grape Tassel Loafers Black Leather
Not a lace person? These tassel loafers are just for you. The easy ‘slip-on’s that will keep you safe on the smart dressed list and with the almond shaped toe, you’re also keeping your footwear modern
Ask the Missus Genuine Snaffle Loafers in Black Leather
These snaffle loafers are one of our favourites, gold hardware, soft leather and a block heel, what more could one want? These shoes are an acquired taste but do make the right fashion statement.
Office Franco Penny Loafers Black Suede Choc Sole
If you’re more of the ‘casual’ guy, these suede loafers are the most perfect fit. The round toe, penny detailing and suede upper make this suitable for most formal occasions ( we would not suggest black tie though). These shoes look great with dark denims or smart chinos and your favourite blazer.
