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.

Those antique brandy double monks are gorgeous! Think they’re redundant with my Allen Edmonds oxblood single monks?
Darkwell0071 (14 days ago)
Really being drawn to those one piece or whole leather with the closed lacing system. Just wonder if I will cry when they develop creases with use.

I notice that all style youtubers who talk about penny loafers never put shiny pennies in the slots like we did long ago. Is this now considered a faux pas?

1. a pair of Altra Superiors \ 2 . a pair of Keen Hiking shoes 3 . a pair of black oxfords/captoes 4. a pair of brown saddle oxfords 5 . black tassle loafers/wingtip. all go with jeans and the 3 through 5 will with suits or jeans # 3 will go with a tux... Own a good wool brown tones sports jacket/twill and a good black suit that is a time[ess cut..double breasted if you are 20 or more lbs over weight. ...stay away from synthetics. Khakis , blue and black trousers. ....Buy Eddie Bower jeans as they can be bought in odd sizes that will not need tailored..you can by a 33-31...their denim is very good... own 3 colors of silk tie...tie width same as lapel on sports jacket....black burgandy and red. other colors optional....shirts...white, blue and blue striped.

Mate, I wouldn’t create content around shoes when your trousers are atrociously ill fitted- they butcher the entire aesthetic of any shoe you wear . Akin to bell bottoms Son- sort yourself a tailor or get your trousers made to measure
Phantom Warrior (3 months ago)
while im sure the expensive shoes are nice. in the past i have bought many shoes for $30 that were artificial leather and have lasted me easily for over 3 years after daily wear.

You wear fine clothes and I appreciate your passion. What is obvious is that your style was popular in the 1930s. The current James Bond look (now Daniel Craig) is the standard of what is worn today--not an absolute, just a general standard. Pants are not pleated. Pocket squares are no longer fashionable. Suits today are much more fitted than in the past. Pants and jackets from one suit are not mixed and matched with those of others. There is a general tendency to eliminate flashiness and lean towards simplicity. I try to "like the look," and yes, it's great, but for the 1930s.

In many cases I agree your opinion. But wingtip brogues shoes called in Germany "Budapester" and these are shoes of pimps. Sorry, some shoes of them has nice ornaments but I wouldn't wear this to a suit seriously. What about Chelsea Boots and slippers - you don't have this on your list - here often used/weared with suits and casual outfits.

Black Derby brogues is the exact thing I got years ago when I knew nothing about shoes.

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.

So far you have not mentioned classic open toed sling back Crock with preferred soles & hood ornament over tassel, over kilt 😂
godra051 (5 months ago)
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.

US$300? You really must be joking - a 'good' pair of shoes (start) around US$3,000!

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 (5 months 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 (6 months ago)
Seems like a lot of brown. Here in the USA, black would be the better choice.

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.

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.

Massive turn-ups on your trousers, baggy fit suits, pleated “flannel slacks” tasseled loafers, “sports jacket” “sweaters”...that is an awful look, what era are you from?? If you want good value decent shoes look at Justin Reece

I don't like owning a lot of stuff. So if I can only have 3 shoes in my collection, which of the 5 would you recommend? Though, I'm sure the black oxford is a must.

I don't really like the wingtip derby. I get that it's less formal and the variety of formality is good, but it seems too flashy to me.

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.
