Foundation:The Dress Shoe

I have not much to say about this topic because it is simple, you must, and I mean absolutely must, purchase at least two pairs of dress shoes in order to properly maintain a gentleman’s wardrobe. The first pair I recomend is a Black Cap Toe, or Quarter Brogue dress shoe.

For the second pair, I recomend the very same style  but in brown leather.

Now of course, as I have stated over and over again, there are no set rules to what type of shoe a gentleman should purchase, that would infringe on personal style, which is a cardinal sin here at CVC. As all of my readers know, I am partial(border line addicted) to velvet slippers(and canvas for summertime), that’s just the rebel in me. For versatility purposes, here are a couple more styles that you will be able to choose from.

WingTip(Full Brogue)

Monk Strap

Penny Loafer (The Tassels are optional)

Of course the more expensive the shoe the higher the quality, you may even have your own shoe craftsman to mold shoes speicifically for your feet(My personal aspiration). But for now, you can purchase nice affordable shoes, with good quality, from these retailers Zappos, OverStock, Aldos Shoes, Urban Outfitters, and of course the almighty EBay.
