Colored leather and suede are fantastic shoe options. Get a little crazy with reds, blues, and grays. Don’t worry about matching a belt to each one – a black belt with gray shoes or a brown one with oxblood red is fine.
5. Trouser cuffs should “break” on the tops of your shoes.
That means they rest very lightly on the leather itself. You shouldn’t have a gap between your pants and your shoes.
6. Wear a pocket square.
Anytime you’re wearing a jacket. No exceptions.
7. Belts or suspenders – pick one.
Never both at the same time.
8. Go read a book on style.
Or a magazine. Or an article. Something about fashion. Old and out of date is okay, and even fun sometimes. Just get exposed to something new.
