Dress shoes are a must to refine your look with tailcoats at any formal event or meeting.
Go for Oxfords, Derbies or Brogues in black or brown. Choose a pair with simple detailing and fine leather, and make sure they are wellpolished to create that sleek look.

Boots are a perfect match for your denim, and will be a reliable travel companion when you go abroad, especially during winter.
A pair made of genuine leather is always your best bet and will eventually create that rusty yet authentic look as it ages.

HAVE you ever put on a dapper outfit and realised that something was missing or the shoes were a little bit off? Well, shoes can make or break your oufit. The right shoe can do wonders to your ensemble and give that extra “wow”.
And guys, it is not only women who can never have enough shoes. Just think of it this way: There is nothing wrong in having more options in your wardrobe, especially when you need to look presentable in certain social settings.
Here are the five types of shoes a man should have:
LOAFERS / MOCCASINS
Loafers and moccasins are suitable for casual and leisure activities. They come in handy for travelling or when you feel like toning down your dressy outfit a bit.

Go for shoes that are comfortable and practical, and most importantly, fit your office dresscode.
The bold buckles of Monk Strap shoes make them a stylish alternative compared to laced dress shoes.
If your office setting is semi-formal or casual, the type of detailing and material will determine how relaxed or casual you look. Elegant, low-heeled loafers or branded trainers also make the cut. Call It Spring Monk Strap shoes, RM274
Apart from a pair of sports shoes, try to save your best sneakers for dress-down Fridays at work, cocktail parties or other casual outings. A pair of designer sneakers in white is a bonus to break up the monotony of a black suit and to add some style. Just make sure they are squeaky clean!
