Men’s Dress Shoes: What Every Stylish Man Should Know About Oxfords



Oxfords, not Brogues, is the creed of a Kingsman (a British-American spy action-comedy movie). Oxfords are not always Brogues and the two terms can be quite confusing. You should know that Brogues aren’t really a type of shoes but simply refer to the pattern of decorative perforations known as ‘broguing‘ which can also be applied on Oxford shoes.

Oxfords are usually characterized by their closed lacing system, a vamp and low heels. They are some of the most versatile of shoe styles and can work as dress shoes for formal wear and still fit casual wear which is why they are on the top of most men’s must-have list.

Here are 4 types of Oxfords a Style Raven man should have in his collection:

The Wholecut

The wholecut oxfords in plain black are a modern alternative for a Tuxedo, and in brown they can be worn with all kinds of suits, combinations or casual outfits.


The Cap-Toe

This is the first dress shoe a man should most likely own! They are essential for your day-to–day suits and business wear. They can also be worn when you want to add a dash of sophistication to your casual dress options like chinos and a blazer. However, it is not recommended to wear black with denim.


The Plain

The simplicity of the plain Oxfords defines its elegance. This can be worn with both casual and formal wears to create a minimalist look.


The Wingtip

This is considered to be more casual than the Cap-Toe. The browns are usually paired with tweeds and denims while the blacks are more suitable for office-wear.

So which are your favourite Oxfords?
