Gentlemen, trying to decide between the classic Garnier II and this shoe that I saw posted recently. I'm looking for a shoe that can go everyday black, but that also can go formal as in black tie. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, BeSpiff

So did Prince William, wearing 'full brogue' wingtips with black tie at the reception on the night before his wedding:

Yes, I would like the shoe I pick to be able to go everyday black business suit and formal dinner attire if such a thing is possible. I've been wearing these 25yr old CH's of late.

Prince William could have gone in footies with those pom poms on the back and everyone would say it is grand and proper.

More importantly, I am sure he has an endless supply of shoes.

BeSpiff is asking for one pair to play various grades of formality. In this case, I think one should choose that which is more usually capable of standing up to the higher dressing standard.




In the end, dear boy,you will choose what your like but that was my thought on the matter and now stated with some of the reasoning behind it.

Well the Duke of Windsor did the same and he's now worshipped by all igentry.

So get ahead of the curve and adopt black wingtip oxfords for tuxedos.

I guess the bike is moving but his feet are stationary so the background is blurred and shoes clear! Awesome shot inlove.gif

Again, another member of British royalty. Did he only have a pair of brogues for black tie?
The Duke wore plenty of classics as well. Added tweaks and flair even to those, sure, but everything was not completely over the line(the line of that age, anyway).
If they only had one pair of shoes would it be those brogues?

In the end, will it matter which pair BeSpiff wears to his events or in the everyday? No. I would guess that most people at the events he attends will not make his choice of shoes the lead topic of the evening.
Brogues are less formal, that is all. If you want to wear teal suede chukkas to your black tie dinner, have at it, mate. Post on Instagram and maybe you will attract a following and become an igent hero at some point as well. Blow the curve out. And your assertion that NOT wearing brogues with black tie is inappropriate(behind the curve), well..puzzled.gif

BeSpiff, enjoy whichever you purchase. The model you posted appears quite nice(not familiar with it) and the Garnier surely is.Fin.
