There's no point in following all the advice we provide in our video if your company is extremely casual or extremely formal. You simply have to figure that out and the best way to do that is to observe what others are wearing or to ask your supervisor. Well-made shoes from quality leather that is expertly polished can really upgrade a cheap suit, at the same time, a cheap pair of shoes can bring down a $5,000 bespoke suit. Business Casual Shoes For White-Collar Environments Because you're in this traditional environment, chances are even business casual is more formal than in other places. Now that doesn't mean that you should wear your black cap toe oxford because that would still be too formal and while it's good with suits for business casual, you can be a bit more daring. For one that means wearing a derby shoe. Derbys have an open lacing system and because of that, they're always slightly less formal than an oxford. Also, I would stay clear of black derbys, instead I would opt for brown ones because brown is one of those shades that has just a hundred or thousand different colors with little variations and so you can never have enough brown shoes. When I say brown I also mean red shoes, either reddish brown, burgundy, or oxblood. These are all fantastic colors for business casual even in a formal environment. Service, Sales, & Trade Industries Chances are you still have client contact and even though it's not required of you to be well dressed, and sometimes it may come off as aloof or not appropriate, people will still judge you and if you look frumpy in sweatpants with a hole that are all dirty, people will think less highly of you, they will assume that you're less competent than if you would wear let's say a nice dress shirt with a pair of chinos. If you are just at the office and never have client contact, your employer will likely have specific ideas of what's acceptable and what's not. If that's not your office, I suggest to just stay clear of sneakers because sneakers are quite casual. The same is true for tennis shoes, Nikes, Adidas, it's simply not work appropriate shoes. Start-up Environment Frankly, the sky's the limit and it can be anything from flip-flop over vans to very extraordinary Gucci loafers. Most startups won't even have a dress code and so it's all about what you're comfortable with and about their culture and how you fit in. Now, just because you can wear anything doesn't mean everything has the same level of benefits for you. General Guidelines to keep in mind: The general advice to your wardrobe and if you want the biggest bang for your buck and the lowest cost per wear, I strongly suggest to not invest in shoes that fuse modern style and traditional style. Why you might wonder? Well, matching together formal and informal elements will mean it's a very trendy shoe and it may be great at the moment but it's just a fashion and a fad and it will disappear in just a few years of time. Now that you know a lot about business casual shoes, there are times when you should avoid wearing them and step up your shoe game and just be a little more formal. For example, think of important meetings with a board maybe with their most important client or the CEO who is known to be a clothes horse. In those situations, you definitely want to take it up a notch and put your best foot forward. In summary, the dress-code business casual is not easy to master when it comes to shoes because it can mean different things at different times at different companies, however, using the three-tier approach of formal environment, less formal environment, and casual environment, it can really help you to nail it and put your best foot forward. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

Dude go to h&m get a formal shirt 15$for a white, light blue, black and many more colors. 15 each then 30$ for some trousers at Haggar that’s 45$ for a full outfit minus the shoes. I got some black oxfords at h&m for 35$ that’s a full outfit for about 80$ I got dress socks from fallas paredes at about 3-4$ for a pair of 5.

Could someone recommend me a channel as this one, but made for women, please? I wish you created "Lady's gazette" or something similar, as this channel seems very interesting, although exclusive for men, sadly:)

You move your mouth very weirdly when talking but I can't exactly pinpoint why I find it weird... exaggerated, unnatural movements of the mouth perhaps?

You have to have some rubber soled shoes if you walk any distance is wet, snowy weather.

Your style and the coordinating of accessories is so awesome. It is unfortunate that I never see men dressed like you. Most men have no idea of how to dress.

Been always waiting on your opinion on shearling jackets..
fountainhead (13 days ago)
As much as I like them, I find it hard to wear leather-soled shoes. Even when it's not raining where I am in New York, sidewalks are always wet for one reason or another. Maybe Dainite soles are a good compromise?
Bobo Swaggins (13 days ago)
As a real estate agent, what would be the best choice to go with. I hate super casual fits, so what should I do?
Ian Butler (13 days ago)
The dress shoes with the white rubber soles are the ugliest thing I have ever seen.

Thank you very much for the video; what do you think of rubber outsole that covers the leather sole to protect it from the elements?

oh..you don't like rubber soles....apparently you do not live in the northeast United States where you life depends on non skid rubber soles.
Nancy Orlando (3 days ago)
ohhhhhhh. well he must have some skid resistant shoes in his vast wardrobe.
SPNKr (13 days ago)
Well he's in Minnesota, for what that's worth.

i am a 77 year old woman so none of this applies to me. however, you are so darn cute and your videos are so darn cute i love to watch them
minonano (13 days ago)
Yes! My kinda style.
James Swingland (13 days ago)
I tend to wear rubber soled shoes, because the remaining leather pair I own (which has not really been worn) is very slippery, and thanks to an accident a few years ago, I have some trouble walking and balancing. I also live in the UK, so its often rather wet. Is there some way I can make the grip on the shoes better (other than sticking rubber on the bottom), or should I just continue with my rubber soles in your opinion?
CatatonicBug (13 days ago)
Where I live, any leather-soled shoes, no matter how brogued or embellished they are, are considered "church shoes". No one seems to know (or care about) the difference in formality. It's rather sad...
Tibor Klein (13 days ago)
I work in a big factory's management department, where I never meet any customers. Patterned shirts, jeans and sneakers with a modest design (I have a mid-brown suede pair) are perfectly acceptable here.
GeneralKoekwous (13 days ago)
Up till now I've not really had contact with many businesses where the business code is really that formal, especially when there is close contact with a client company I've found that good colour matched Chino's and jackets etc. not really black/navy suits. Don't really know how true this is in other places thought, would love to hear.
Philipp Koch (13 days ago)
Do rubber soles last longer than leather soles?
Harja7 (13 days ago)
You can go to a cobbler to get rubber half soles to extend the life of the shoes. For winter, I recommend going for rubber soles. Leather just can't handle moisture, salt and rubble.
Anson Lin (13 days ago)
where did you get the dark brown whole cut shoes ?
MultiMrMiles (13 days ago)
at my company everyboy dresses like slobs....so not difficult to be" overdressed" and outshine em all.

In that video Raphael‘s English is a little strange. Did he have a conversation in German just before recording the video? I‘m from GER myself, and some phrases in that video reminded me of German.

I like that jacket. I’m trying to incorporate more green in my dress
Jamesthacoolcat99 (13 days ago)
Like the jacket.
Tom McMorrow (13 days ago)
As I've said many times, as someone in finance and who lives on the East Coast, it's basically suits all day every day. However, I view 'business casual' as my personal brand of 'off time' clothing, usually with little tweaks. For example, I have a cordovan loafer from Ace Marks that I got with the leather sole painted blue. Invisible unless I show the underside, it adds just that little pop of sprezzatura that I enjoy. Another delightful video, I really enjoy this series on business casual, and I share it with all my male friends (in the hopes of converting a few sneaker lovers!).

Very nice examples Thank you so much From India

Where I live, the cowboy boot is a universal shoe. They can be casual, business casual, or formal. Just depends on how well polished they are and how ornate the lower is (never tuck pants into the tops of cowboy boots no matter how ornate the upper is, that's very low class and looks terrible) Edit: for a very formal pair you might look for a pair made of exotic leather and/or a pair with silver/gold boot tips and heel guards
jordan hicks (13 days ago)
+Lobix der Zweite it's a pretty specific geographic area where you can get away with boots (pretty much just Arizona, New Mexico and Texas as well as down south of the border in Mexico), but it's a very traditional look here, and makes you stand out in a crowd when traveling abroad. Shows your cowboy pride in a more subtle way than rocking a Stetson
Lobix der Zweite (13 days ago)
jordan hicks that is so great I love how in some aread the dresscode is just different due to the tradition!
