It may be stating the obvious that all great things are built from the ground up, but for a man's wardrobe it's particularly key. The fact of the matter is that your style barometer starts with your shoe arsenal. A tan brogue, derby or oxford is quite simply the new 'go-to' shoes.
If you are looking for elegant versatility, there is no substitute. Anchor any grey, blue or navy suit with a classic tan brogue. Or if you prefer a more pared back look our lace-up oxford with an embossed leather upper delivers confident and modern style with all the right details.
As for all shoes the key is to make sure your pants or chinos are tailored correctly (you pant length should sit just above the shoe line). Where tan shoes come into their own though is how they migrate seamlessly from the boardroom to the bar. A pair of tan leather shoes look sharp with a suit but pair equally well with chinos and denim.
