Men’s Fashion: Shoes that Shine

There is little doubt that a sharp-looking, head-turning black suit should be in every man’s closet. Contrary to what some people may believe, the black suit is a go-to outfit for more than just attending a funeral. For the business folks, a well-made, well-fitted suit can be worn with a colourful shirt or an interesting tie. But, to take your suit to the next level, pair it with a classic white shirt and – the pièce de résistance – patent leather shoes. You’ll be ready to attend a black-tie event at a moment’s notice. At Saks Fifth Avenue I found a gorgeous selection of patent perfection. These shoes exude classic confidence.

Word of warning — take care of these shoes. Have your cobbler clean and shine these shoes regularly to keep them looking sharp and new.
