This video was brought to you in collaboration with AceMarks. You can find all the leather shoes shown in the video on their website: https://gentl.mn/five-dress-shoes-you-need #shoes #dressshoes #gentlemansgazette CODE: gentleman Make sure to use the code gentleman to get an even better deal! Interested in the shoes I'm wearing? Check out: https://www.acemarks.com/ First, by the way, all of the shoes you can see here are from Ace marks, a supplier of handcrafted Italian men's dress shoes and I liked them because they are hand burnished and they provide a really good value under $300. I've had their shoes in my closet from the beginning and I liked them quite a bit because they fit me extremely well. One, the black oxford. Why should you invest in this shoe? It's an all-time classic, especially as a captoe. You can wear it for business, you can wear it to the funeral, and you can wear it for any kind of formal event out there. Also, unlike brown, black comes just in one shade and so you don't have to invest in dozens of black shoes but one is really a staple that you must have. So how do you wear a black oxford? You can wear it with two-piece suits, three-piece suits, particularly in navy, charcoal, and grey, and any kind of other business appropriate suit. It's also good with blazers, maybe a navy blazer with gray flannel slacks or you can wear it with your tuxedo for Black Tie events, your dinner jacket, alternatively, also for white tie or for formal morning dress. The second shoe style I'd invest in if I started all over again is the Brown Derby full brogue wingtip. So why would I go with this shoe? Well, first of all, a Derby is less formal than an Oxford. The Derby has an open lacing system and because of that, it's more flexible so when your feet are tired and they swell and get bigger, it's a more comfortable shoe than an Oxford. Because of that, I like it for traveling. I would choose a medium brown color such as this antique brown cognac from Ace Marks; it's very versatile and because they are hand polished and hand burnished, you see different shades of brown at the tip of the shoe than for example at the bottom. The third shoe style I'd invest in is a loafer. Why a loafer?Well basically, it's a slip-on shoe, it's casual, it's an entirely different style from the other two, yet it's a timeless classic. It's really easy to dress up or down and they come in different variations; you can have tassel loafers and sometimes people think they're old-fashioned yet you can actually have them quite young looking and modern but if you don't like that, go with a penny loafer because they're really classic and they're called that way because you used to be able to put a little penny in the front opening. For versatility, I'd go with a different shade in brown than you chose for your Derby wingtip. The fourth shoe style I'd invest in is a double monk strap in a reddish color because it's very versatile, it's stylish, and it's young, and it's just different than all the other shoes that you already have in your wardrobe at this point. This model from Ace Marks comes in a brandy antique Brown which means it was hand polished and hand burnished to achieve different color tones. The fifth shoe style I would invest in is a half brogue Oxford in a medium brown. Here I have an Ace Mark shoe in a lighter antique tan which is once again different than all the other brown tones in my wardrobe. It has a captoe with nice broguing, a medallion, and it's less casual than the full wingtip Derby shoe. I'm adding it to the collection because it's kind of an in-between the more formal Oxford and the more casual Derby. It fits right in between because it doesn't have a wingtip but it has broguing, yet at the same time, it's an Oxford and not a Derby. So if you invest in these five shoe styles, you truly have an extremely versatile dress shoe closet and you can hold off on investments and maybe invest in other parts of your wardrobe. #dressshoes #mensshoes #acemarks --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SHOP THE VIDEO: 1.

Thanks for posting all of these videos. With respect to shoes, you might want to mention in future videos that every pair of shoes you own should also have a pair of shoe trees. They really help shoes last longer. Even sneakers benefit from them.

I agree with the choice. But think that every man should have pair of boots as well. And a shoe in different colour. French have some hand toned burgundy, greenish, gray etc. Need to be stylish from time to time. At least in my opinion. I'm just getting into hand made shoes as I got tired of paying $80-100 every year for shoes that get cracs and markings after I wear them few times.

For a versatile and stylish but casual look, I like the classic oxblood penny or tassel loafer. The oxblood color works well with most wardrobes.

Is the plain toe/wholecut much preferable to the cap toe? Also would you recommend Acemarks over something like Allen Edmonds in the similar price range?
Chris Reno (1 month ago)
based on my recent research, it seems the whole cut is a bit more fashion forward (could pair with denim), but also a bit more formal (pairs slightly better with a tuxedo). The cap toe is more classic (think suits).
Kevin Kercheval (2 months ago)
Seems like a lot of brown. Here in the USA, black would be the better choice.

Unfortunately, all these Anglo footwear options are quite uncomfortable and not well suited to walking or standing for lengthy periods. It's too bad we can't evolve beyond these types of footwear.

Raphael what is your opinion of the fashion craze to wear brown shoes with dark suits, especially blue suits? I can't stand this craze and refuse to wear a lighter brown shoe and brown belt with a blue suit!! This, to me, looks terrible, almost clown like and I refuse to wear anything but traditional black shoes with dark suits.

Never wear brown shoes with black or navy blue suits; only with light grey or brown tweed casual suits.

Unfortunately if you have flat feet and high insteps, half of these shoes are no-gos. Can't wear loafers. Balmoral styles are too tight and monks don't provide proper support on the sides as do lace-up shoes.

Have never worn any of those stuffy styles (except the slip-on in the pre-velcro past) and don't see any need to start now. I mainly wear velcro strap black things sold by for instance M&S, a famous high-class store. The things here are too "posh" for just about all the time.

Hi, First of all - a huge THANKS for all the content you've created over the last years. I'm so inspired by you and thanks to all your valuable advise I have refined my way of dressing a lot for the last couple of years. I also love that you've hired Preston who can show us young gentlemen that it's fully possible to dress well even in the beginning of one's career when one has a somewhat limited budget. The above is one of my favorite videos that you've posted and has been a huge help in my search for the perfect shoe collection. Now that I've purchased "the big five" (and a few more pairs) it would be very interesting to hear your opinion on the following five pairs to buy. Cheers! /Henrik
Keith Towles (4 months ago)
This guy is on point with his assessment shoe styles and categories. I have three out the five mentioned, a cap toe that wouldn't be considered a brogue but there Kenneth Cole's; conversely, he failed to mention the split toe another multifunctional style, I acclimated to after a number of years. Finally, I had an issue with his pants; and not sure if he was trying to draw attention to the shoes or, is it a proclivity: any haberdasher of stock and trade, should have a decent brake in his pants.

On no account would a British gentleman wear either a ‘slip-on’, or ‘monk-strap’. Both are the sign of a braggart and a rogue! Mayhap, the very shoes truly designed for ‘co-respondents! Please, Sven, also never go ‘broog’ in description, it’s a Celtic detail and is always ‘broag’ . Otherwise, you are a scholar and an instinctive gentleman, and have true style! :)

Guilherme Atanasov (26 days ago)
If you dress according to fashion only, then you'd be just another brainwashed fool who does free advertising to the great brands out there whithout any concern about quality. To these people, price is quality. They laugh of men like Raphael because he is free and dress the way he likes to, whithout the fear of being socially neglected. It requires courage to be yourself in a world that people talk about freedom of speech and style, but do the absolut contrary.

The 'black oxford' is not exactly an oxford, cause it's a one cut, the good spelling for the pair is : Richelieu or One Cut. When you want to know if the "bottier" (shoes maker) make a good work, always check the One cut on store. I suggest a dark brown instead of black. Best regards from France Gentlemen
