The rules of formal wear aren’t as strict as they used to be, but it never hurts to keep things classic. Go for a pair of patent leather shoes, like these fancy guys. Since they’re slip-ons, lose the socks and have your tailor hem your trousers a touch higher. Cool and contemporary – but they’re traditional enough to last a lifetime.
