    Ways to lace Derby shoes part 2

    Ways to lace Derby shoes criss-cross way, step 1:

    Two proper ways to lace these shoes is to either have a bar lacing which is horizontal and parallel or to do a criss-cross lacing which is a little more sporty and informal. The criss-cross lacing is better for less formal outfits such as jeans or chinos or tweed. First, put in the lace from the top on both sides and you pull them straight and you want to make sure that the ends are the same length so you hold on it and pull through. Cross them over, come down from the top, through the holes and pull through just slightly if you want. You always want to make sure you have the same kind of criss-cross pattern, one is over the other which way does not matter, it just looks better if it is consistent on the same shoe.

    Ways to lace Derby shoes part 1

    The Derby is a classic men’s dress shoe that is not as formal as the Oxford but still, they are very high on the formality scale and it can be worn with suits and in the office, on the business meetings or business events. The easiest way to change the look of your shoes and to make it look like a new pair is to simply change your shoelaces and use a different color. It is unbelievable how just a pair of red, blue, green, yellow, purple or brown shoelaces really transform the whole look and what is even better is once you have a few different colors, you can provide a different look for the same shoe and you can remove the pair of laces and put it in a different pair of shoes, meaning you literally have endless variations of how to style the wardrobe all without it being too expensive.

    How to wear brown shoes and boots part 5

    Brown shoes are not a substitute for black shoes, and every man should own at least one pair of black plain Oxfords.

    How to combine brown shoes with socks, number 2:

    Chinos paired with burgundy striped socks and mid-brown suede Derby shoes are unusual yet great. Of course, you can always mix up the look of the shoes with some shoelaces and light gray just looks better with black than with brown. Green pants are great for mid brown suede shoes or boots. Checked pants can be paired well with the rust-orange, over-the-calf socks and chocolate brown Norwegian shoes with crepe soles. The solid brown blucher or derby is a wardrobe staple because it pairs with almost every kind of informal outfit.

    When to wear brown shoes, number 8: Sports coat, trouser combination

    With green ones, you should wear brown every time. I have no particular preference and combine it with all shades, but avoid black. With khaki ones, dark browns work well. Avoid black. With tan ones cordovan, cherry and mid brown are great, again avoid black. With white/off-white it is nice to wear brown white spectators with it, but dark brown, mid brown or reddish brown work too. With dark brown ones, tan is my favorite for dark brown.

    When to wear brown shoes, number 5:

    Of course, if you are confident enough, you can pair lighter shoe colors with dark suits, but be aware that you will gather more attention that way. Black remains the “number one” color for business, so if you are unsure, stick with black, and if you invest in your first pair of business shoes, go with a black cap toe Oxford shoe.

    When to wear brown shoes, number 2: Business suits

    For 3-piece or 2-piece business suits, in the following colors, in solid worsteds or flannels, pinstripes or faint windowpanes or Prince of Wales Checks. For a black suit, wear black shoes and avoid brown. For charcoal gray ones, I prefer black over any form of brown. Maybe dark brown can work but avoid a tan. For mid gray ones, black works but particularly dark brown or cherry is a suitable color and avoid a tan. For dark navy suits, black works well but cordovan, tan and dark brown can look magnificent and dashing. Of course, you will stand out visually with light tan shoes and a navy suit, something to bear in mind. For light navy ones, black often looks better than brown in my opinion, but it really depends on the cloth. With pinstripes, it is better to wear black shoes and never brown. For dark brown ones, pair them with brown shoes and skip black altogether.

    History of brown shoes, number 1:

    By the 1930s, Edward the Prince of Wales had relaxed some menswear rules, leading to softer materials and bolder colors. He also was a supporter of brown slip-on Spectators shoes and brown shoes in general. On the other hand, the evening dress was still rather formalized. Full evening dress with white tie and Dinner dress both demanded black shoes. So, you can see, by the 1950s, the “no brown in town” rule was no longer valid, although black was still the color for evenings.

    Important Items You Need to Carry for a Short Business Trip (Part One)!

    Before anything else, sit down and calm yourself. After that, find a right suitcase or carry-on for your short business trip. As for a personal advice, instead of a suitcase with two wheels, grab a four wheels suitcase because it is easy to move with one hand. The big spinner suitcase needs a little more checking before finalizing it. Then, evaluate the days you are likely to spend on your business trip and according to that, set up your essentials.
