You might not need to wear dress shoes that often. When you do, you need to know which ones are appropriate for your outfit. This handy illustrated guide breaks down the nuance of dress shoes.
The guide below, from advice site the Art of Manliness, breaks down common dress shoe types into a hierarchy of most to least “dressy.” It uses image like the one above to highlight the defining characteristics of each type of dress shoe as well as when you’ll wear them. In brief, it covers the following nine types of dress shoes:
- Wholecut or Cap-Toe Oxford
- Semi-Brogue Oxford
- Wingtip Oxford
- Plain or Cap-Toe Derby
- Single Monk Straps
- Double Monk Straps
- Semi-Brogue Derby
- Longwing Derby
- Suede Bucks
If you want something less dressy that you can wear in a more casual setting, pick something from lower on the list. If you’re going out in fancy evening wear, move on up to the top of the list. Check out the full guide at the source link below to get a ton more information and illustrations for each type of shoe.
