THE WHOLE CUT OXFORD

The whole cut oxford in black leather is one of the most elegant shoes around.  The Whole Cut is also the perfect partner to the modern tuxedo. Whole Cut shoes are cut from one single piece of leather and have no panels or stitching, making for an exceptionally clean design. Pair your whole cut Oxford shoes with tailored tuxedo trousers. 

Ensure your trousers just  touch the laces for a sleek and minimalistic look.

THE PATENT LEATHER OXFORD

The black patent leather oxford combines classic styling with eye-catching shine. The shiny surface ensures it gets noticed without attracting too much attention. The patent leather also matches the shine of a tuxedo’s satin lapel, working together to create a complete look. Combine the patent leather Oxford with formal tuxedo’s and tailored trousers that sit just atop the laces.

THE PATENT LEATHER LOAFER

The black patent leather loafer is an amazing choice for more fashion forward Tuxedos. This loafer is a statement piece that adds character and elegance to your look. The Patent loafer has a slim profile, low heel and minimalist detailing. Wear a patent leather loafer with tonal or no-show socks and a slightly shorter cut trouser.

THE PATENT LEATHER CHELSEA BOOT

The Chelsea Boot has a slim and tapered shape. This shape combines beautifully with the black patent leather to create a very sleek tuxedo shoe. The Patent Chelsea plays heavily into the minimalist appeal of the modern tux. Chelsea boots are also very comfortable and easy to slip in and off. Pair the patent Chelsea boot with a slim trouser cut slightly shorter to accommodate this style’s extra height.

THE FASHION-FORWARD CHOICE

Depending on your style, the options above may be too conservative for your look or personality. Consider exploring more fashion-forward loafer shapes that add character to your outfit. Most black slipper or loafer style shoes will work so don’t be afraid to reach for something more unique if your personality calls for it.
