Color coordinating is essential to a dapper man, but having a shoe, shirt, and belt that matches can be tiresome and expensive. A beginner tip for buying a decent pair of dress shoes is to go with burgundy color tones. You don’t have to love the color or have shirts and pants of the same color because on an elementary level of style, burgundy goes with everything. Get a burgundy belt and burgundy pair of shoes and you’re set. Cole Haan has a summer sale and we like the Air Madison Cap-Toe Oxford for the classic oxford style.
