There are few things in life finer and more investment-worthy than a proper pair of dress shoes - the heritage-derived, well-made pair to wear for seasons to come. Below, we give you the definite list of dress shoes any considered man should own.


Brogues were traditionally considered to be outdoor or country footwear not otherwise appropriate for casual or business occasions, but are now appropriate for wear in most contexts. Recognised by patterned punch detailing on the upper, brogues are less smart than plain-toed lace-up men's styles. Our men's James Brogue shoes are a classy must-have!


An Oxford shoe is characterised by shoelace eyelets tabs that are attached under the vamp, a feature termed “close lacing”. Originally, Oxfords were plain, formal shoes made of leather, but they have since evolved into a range of styles suitable for formal, uniform, or casual wear. DERBYS A derby is a style of shoe characterised by quarters with shoelace eyelets that are sewn on top of the vamp. This construction method, also known as “open lacing”, distinguishes them from the oxford. Originally a popular shoe for sporting and hunting, the derby has long been appropriate for wear in town. Our stylish Anthony Tan shoes are essential to add a hint of sophistication to your outfit.



Chelsea boots are close-fitting, ankle-high boots with an elastic side panel. They often have a loop or tab of fabric on the back of the boot, enabling the boot to be pulled on. The boot dates back to the Victorian era and is considered an iconic element of the mod scene in 1960s Britain. Wear our men's Mick Chelsea Boots for a classy finish.
