Real Men Real Style I'm going to a convention tomorrow and I'm wearing a black suit with black shoes but the rim is brown
Thiago (6 months ago)
I would prefer black because a black is a black obviously, it can be worn with any types of clothing, even if you wear a dark washed jean
Gabriel Paulino (6 months ago)
I prefer brown because I think it shows off the design of the shoe. Of course, for a formal attire I go with black.

Real Men Real Style just one pair of black shoes n abt 2 or 3 of brown 👞

As usual, great video. I like both. Other than for your very first pair of shoes, it really doesn't need to be an either or situation.

Antonio, in one of your videos, you mentioned that ostrich or exotic shoes despite being oxford or Chelsea, would be consider casual. But what's about nice looking alligator belly oxfords or dress shoes? I'm talking about the ones with smooth nice scales. Not horn-back scale. Would those consider formal or casual? I have a few pairs of those and cowboy boots.

I like your suggestion but i try to buy vintage clothing anywhere i can get it, it doesn't matter if it's used it matter about your style and taste in clothes, my favorite dress shoes are a candy apple pair of shoes i got to get them resoled but there really nice but at the end a nice pair of American shoes made back in the day from the 40s, 50s have lasted longer than some of today's dress shoes that's why i go with vintage you pay up or pay down for a peace of American history you can wear.

Id say you need both colors. Now looking for a casual black shoes. Wish me luck
Олег Белкин (6 months ago)
I simply love your channel, there's no better way to upgrade my style then to watch some of your videos. I have both black and brown shoes and, as for me, in most cases brown ones win. There are just times more options with 'em. Didn't you think, sometimes it even works when you take a dark blue brown-caged jacket with brown shoes and a belt to a formal meeting?

Hi Antonio, i have really wide feet. Currently the shoes i am wearing are size 13, and they're extra wide. most of the time when i go shopping there's only 1 or 2 pairs in the whole store that fit me comfortably. Mostly cuz where i am from people here generally have very small feet. I also have a huge liking for double monk strap shoes. Any suggestions? Kinda afraid to shop online as i always feel the shoe won't fit me properly
JHEYR IDOLOR (6 months ago)
Hey Antonio, do they run true to size? I'm kind of a wide footer guy, any suggestions or recommendations I'll take it.

Brown shoes all day.
RolandTheBigBootMan (6 months ago)
I think about two-thirds to three-quarters of all my dress shoes are black (and yes, I do wear them with jeans). I am a little wary about wearing too light of a brown shoe even though I found a pair of walnut Allen Edmonds Strands that look great. However, my uncle has a pair of wingtips that are supposedly light brown, but their discoloration kind of reminds me of vomit. Most two-tone dress shoes, though, are not appealing to me at all.

Saul Moran (6 months ago)
All this shoe talk reminded me of a question, how formal is a split toe ( kinda like a more formal moccasin) versus a cap toe. Could it be worn with black tie?
Kokocomando and Ladro (6 months ago)
Admarks. But tbf im backing these guys and these shoes. Despite how frequently they are promoted, they are actually very good value shoes. Nice video.

Does the blue sude brown shoe go well with jeans? Great tips
Real Men Real Style (6 months ago)
Definitely!
Amir Tajul (6 months ago)
G-PRINCE yes
Matt V (6 months ago)
So basically, brown is mainly for the casual vibe, whilst black is for more formal occasions. I'd have a real hard time choosing between Black Chukkas or Chealsea. What's your opinion though? Black Chelsea's and a suit, or no? 'Cause i really don't want to wear square shoes...
Real Men Real Style (6 months ago)
Yes! Can be worn with a suit, jeans or trousers.

Bram Derwael (6 months ago)
Dunno if I'm the only one, but I only use neutral polish on my brown shoes since there would usually be discolouration... unless you get the exact shade of course.

About as close to affordable luxury as it gets. This manufacturer is an outlier and their shoes are fantastic.

Thanks Antonio! Just ordered 2 pairs of dress shoes through the campaign. These will be by far the nicest shoes I'll have ever owned (especially the whole cuts), and will make a good impression when I'm out of college working as an accountant. What a good deal!

gwimmer98 (6 months ago)
Hey Antonio, I really enjoy your videos, they’ve helped me a lot. Can you please make a video on how to shop when you are somewhere between two sizes. I’m a bit more muscular but still lean, so with shirts, Polos and jackets I’m usually between small and medium (European sizes if it matters). Small sometimes gets a bit too tight especially in the chest and shoulder area, but medium is very saggy and too long on arms and the torso. Are there any tricks on how to approach this, are there any brands that have a more muscular cut? I think many guys have that problem, would make a nice video, especially because it seems like you are also a bit more on the muscular side...

xeenslayer (6 months ago)
Hi Antonio, thanks for the vid, pretty informative. Would be interesting if you could elaborate more about styles to match with different shoe types in another video. I come to your channel more often now for men's fashion info. I started off with Aaron Marino (when he first started his channel) but he's doing a little too much blahblah these days. Appreciate that you're still doing mostly videos on clothing and style.
qarhsi (6 months ago)
Antonio, any suggestions to prevent/remove yellow stains from shirt collars? preventing would be a better option actually! nice video btw! i think brown can work well with grey suits too. just that charcoal grey-dark brown. lighter greys-lighter browns. LOL, that last part haha
toobalkain (6 months ago)
Once the stain is set in, it seems impossible to get out. I failed to notice the rings on a couple of my favorite shirts due to specific lighting in the walk in and by then they were very much set in, I tried everything, from various oxi products to baking soda, pretty much every bleaching chemical available OTC that one person or another claimed would work, tried borax as well, nothing worked. The only thing I haven't tried is hydrogen peroxide.

Brown with jeans, khakis and colored pants Black with suits
Thiago (6 months ago)
Master Mellow that depends upon the jacket you wear with jeans, dark washed jeans with brown shoe sucks
eronavbj (6 months ago)
Having grown up in the 1950-60s, these tips were familiar to me. It's great that you're educating contemporary young men regarding their appearance, since I believe they have been largely led astray by incongruous style choices of late. Cordovan (or Shadow Antique Brown as it was also known) was the most ubiquitous shoe color back in my high school days, since, as you noted, the shade was extremely versatile.

Gottfried Osterbach (6 months ago)
No offense Antonio, but Blake construction sounds like a 200 range shoe to me. It might be a very good brand for the price, but doesn't seem like a 600 dollar shoe. I feel like I am either being tested or patronized. Maybe I am ignorant and just need further explanation.
