3 Shoes That Scream For Attention
[0:00:00] Gentlemen, today we’re talking about three
dress shoes that are uncommon. Dress shoes that are going to set you apart
from the pack. [Music]
I’ve talked about before the first five dress shoes. I’ve talked about like the core dress shoes. These are none of those. These are dress shoes that you’re going
to want to buy after you’ve got your core ones you’ve got your first dress shoes out
of the way. These are the ones that when you wear them
people are going to give you compliments. They’re going to talk about these dress
shoes. They’re going to ask you where you bought
them where you grab them. And, you’re just going to smile because
it’s a conversation starter. And I’m going to start off with this shoe
right here. This is an ankle boot with a basically the
double monk strap going on this. Now, double monk strap, this has been around
for a long time, we’re talking since Medieval times. Nowadays, what you’re going to see on a
lot of these is they’ve actually got a little bit of elastic built in there, so that your
foot can slip right in and that’s what I love about these. Other details about this shoe in particular,
it’s going to be the color. This one right here has got a darker brown
here on the toe. You can actually buy a lighter colored pair
of shoes and you could use certain types of polish to bring this in, but I like it whenever
I find it in the shoe. Now, this design up here at the front, this
is a cap-toe. A cap-toe is when they’ve got another piece
of leather thrown on and that right there But, the cap-toe adds a little bit it does
make it more casual, but overall this is a casual shoe something that, you know, casual
dress shoe, still something that, you know, you can wear for casual suit, you can wear
I think it looks great with jeans, maybe with, you know, odd trousers, gray flannels. Anything you want to incorporate there. We have a little bit of broguing right in
here. And we’ve got a single line of stitching. So, having owned, you know, shoes similar
to this for years, I can tell you this stitching is top notch and it’s got the double stitching
in the key areas that we need it. So, on this side right here we see where the
quarter is thrown over the vamp, again, this is sign of a blucher, but they’re using
a strap versus lace. Next up, I want to talk about suede. So many of you guys are afraid to wear suede,
don’t be. Now, I know you say, “Antonio, what happens
if I’m walking through water, I’m trudging through mud?” Well, then, wear the appropriate footwear. You just wear this where it’s appropriate. Now, the penny loafer in of itself has been
around for seventy years. It’s a classic shoe design and we see it
a lot out there, very common very – one of the bestsellers out there. But, in suede, the texture is what’s
key here and it’s going to – it stands apart. With shoes like these casual shoes, you want
to wear no-show socks. Don’t wear no socks, no socks is bad because
you’re going to sweat in here and you will damage the shoe from the inside out. You could also wear this with a casual suit,
you could wear this with a pair of jeans. You can look at maybe a light gray color. You can go for a dark gray color. You could, you know, go – maybe just want
to bring in the penny loafers. And if you don’t have any penny loafers. But, what I focused on here with this on in
particular is the suede Now, let’s talk about the wholecut. This is a dress shoe that for me is more of
the guy that understands he’s confident in who he is what he stands for and he’s
not afraid to stand out from the pack. You can buy this in black. I think it will look great with the tuxedo
with black tie. Polis it up, just give a really nice shine
to it You can go with oxblood, you can go with the dark brown, you can even go with
a lighter brown whether that’d be with a light gray casual suit, maybe a tan suit,
it’s going to look amazing. This design why this is so beautiful is it
takes one solid big piece of unblemished leather to make a great wholecut. So, just a great-looking shoes, something
– you want to look for a Blake stitch a Goodyear welt on this. And, by the way, Goodyear welt Blake stitch,
both of them are very durable. Goodyear welt because they have actually a
thicker heavier sole. Yes, is over if you would have measured the
number of steps, it’s probably going to be more durable. But, I think both of them are amazing built,
it can be resoled and I think I really like the Black stitch, it’s a more elegant design
for this particular shoe style. So, guys, those are three styles. And, I would love to hear from you down in
the comments what you would have added, what you’re like, “Antonio, you totally mess
this up, I would have added this.” You guys know I love learning from you, I
love getting better and I appreciate you guys being part of my community. Guys, that’s it. Take care. I’ll see you in the next video. [0:05:10] End of Audio

  2. My fav is the blue suede loafer…I have a pair and I can't get enough of them…Amazing shoes, Antonio, and great video, as always! You're inspiring me every day!

  3. Totally agreed. Which first 2 dress shoes should I buy that can help me in formal suits as well as in jeans and chinos?.

  4. Hey would you make an Tutorial how to dress like these Miami Vice Guys? I really like their casual suits, all the best to you

  5. Hey Antonio, I've never owned brown leather shoes in my life but I'm thinking about getting a pair or two to dress up my casual looks. One thing I'm a little apprehensive about though: how hard is it to find a polish that matches the tone of the brown leather? Especially with those two-tone shoes you showed in this video which look absolutely superb.

  6. I've gotta say, Antonio, you and Aaron have turned me into a shoe horse…lol. No joke, my dress shoe collection has gone from maybe 3-4 pairs earlier this year to around 14-15 currently (even replacing those original pairs). Even my casual shoe game has stepped up quite a bit. Seriously, thank you for all the (ongoing) advice and insights. It is much appreciated.

  7. Can you do a video that talks about the top ten or top five best brands for dressier shoes? Ones that are the best bang for your buck.

  8. Hey Antonio,
    I was wondering could you make a video on what should younger guys wear in office ?
    I got employed in a company and I was wondering what kind of clothes should I wear.. I was thinking chinos/slacks with dress shirts and sports jacket ? I don't feel like wearing suits every day
    Great videos
    Thanks alot !

  9. Again with the double monks😕…..although I wouldn't mind too terribly if someone decided to buy me one😉

  10. I only wear suede shoes inside a (venue, airport etc..) not outside. Definitely love a brown, double monk strap ankle boot, looks great with slim fit dark jeans. Whole cut shoes are my favorite.

  11. For my fellow bigger style guys. Does anyone know of a brick and mortar store or website with a great return policy that sells these kind of shoes? I'm usually either a 15 wide or a 16 regular depending on the shoe, and acquiring new non-athletic shoes is often a pain. I especially love the suede loafer and the double monk straps.

  12. Love the double monk strap (own a pair, but not ankle boots) and the Wholecut looks very classy. Not a fan of the suede and penny loafers in general.

  13. Since fit is king, and I have fit issues(13A), these shoes will probably to be useless in my wardrobe. I would suggest dressy western boots. My burgundy boots work with everything form dark jeans to a blazer with dress slacks; they look odd with suits.

  14. Seriously thinking about adding a pair of single cuts to my armory. I love the look of these shoes. Taking a client shopping for shoes later this week and I am now thinking that I will add a double monk shoe or ankle boot to the list of things I want him to try!

  15. I love all of these shoes. However, I really appreciate and like the whole cut. It looks very smooth, simple, but elegant at the same time. O blood is a very good color of the shoe

  16. Antonio this is amazing, I helped a friend of mine to buy the first one you showed and I own the second one which I love and I'm looking to add the whole cut to my collection soon. Thank you sir for all you do.

  17. Antonio, I bought a pair of leather chukkas and I'm worried about how they break in. We usually see brand new shoes, but not worn out. Could you talk about this topic: how to or do new shoes break in?

  18. Great video Antonio. I love all three shoe styles but i would have made it 4 and added the Magnanni – Gregorio Leather Derby style. Its a great classic design which you can wear casual in jeans but also look sharp and to the 9s in a good Tom Ford Suit too. The nice thing about the Derby style include a squared medallion toe, Good leather construction, Brogued detail with a Lace-up closure, padded footbed and grip sole. The Tabaco brown color lends itself to blending well with a variety of different outfit colors you might wear too.

    If you'd like to see an example of it this is a link to Nordsromrack.com site and no i'm not making anything off this just adding a classic shoe that all might enjoy.

  19. Antonio, I love your videos. I am a big fan of your work and have learnt plenty from watching your videos.
    I'm a big guy and live in a tropical country, but my job requires me to dress up formally in many ocassion. If possible a tutorial about fabrics, tropical dress etiquette and attirre according to ocassion would be very handy. Thanks in advance.

  20. I want to buy monk straps, because i am in my education now and want to dress like a respectable man instead of a lazy kid who hates school. I wont wear a suit to school, but more smart/business casual. I love monks straps and they are more casual. but i hate the boot version of the monk strap. Can i wear a cheap monk strap loafer through fall/winther. I do not have enouh money for quality!

  21. Hey Antonio, I love your videos. I've been watching them for years but I have to ask, I know you cover a lot of watches but what about Pocket Watches? Personally, I love pocket watches and find them a classic design which can be incorporated in various formal and casual events. What do you think?

  22. I understand that the wholecut is difficult to make; one mistake and the entire shoe is messed up. But in my opinion, it's really ugly…

  23. Maybe instead of the loafers, I’d say step it up a notch and go with tassel loafers. It takes some confidence to wear and it makes you stand out. It’s just an awesome shoe imo!

  24. Great video as always Antonio. I suggest full brogue wingtips such as Allen Edmonds Madison Park, with enhanced
    burnishing with shoe polish.

  25. Hey Antonio! Could you do a video on styling suits ?
    It could be a series .. example- how to wear window pane suits, or how to wear striped suits, charcoal shades, double breasted suits, types of waistcoats, how to carry off a double breasted or a collared waist coat, how to wear tweed or herringbone .. but each being a different video with full combinations..
    What to wear it with, colour combinations, classic “can’t go wrong” configurations, level of formality for each, shirts, ties, accessories to go along with each style .. perhaps a look book for each style and sensibility ..
    I feel it’ll make for great content !
    Thanks for the great content as always,
    Arman !
    (P.S. My go to shoes are Magnani double monks in chestnut! 😉👌🏻)

  26. Antonio, thanks for the video and greetings​ from Houston Texas. I've been meaning to ask you for a while now, for a recommendation on footwear for a specific job. I'm a real estate appraiser and have stepped up my game to include dress shirts, sports jackets, and dark denim jeans. Most people in my industry wear polo or button up short sleeve shirts so I wanted to set myself apart. After introductions have been made I remove my sports jacket and measure the exterior of the property. My big problem is the conditions I have to walk in, i.e. mud, bushes, debris and any other items you find in and around peoples homes. What would you recommend for footwear? I currently wear Ariat boots. They are easy on as well as easy off for entering the homeowner's house. They are rugged and can stand up to the stress and strain of my sometimes difficult assignments. I don't really want to spend a few hundred dollars on shoes that will not hold up to the stress. Your recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

  27. You let me down Antonio. While those shoes (specially the monk strap boot) are nice they are very common designs. Now the spat boot specially with buttons and a textured wool top is a true head turning style.

  28. Hey Antonio, loved the video. Sent you a DM on Instagram (@chrisferdinand_)about a really great shoe company that will definitely set you apart from the rest. But that’s not the point. I definitely agree that the double monk strap boots are rare. I rarely see them worn here in NY. Along with the Penny Loafers. I see a lot of men rocking the foot wear BUT they never make it work up to. And the classic wholecut? CLASSIC. I’ve been meaning to get one but I can’t seem to justify the prices. Like I said, loved the video. I’m definitely more a fan of the double monks. Classy and they stand out.

  29. Thumbnail seemed a bit childish as if you were trying to clickbait shoes. How low are you sinking into this YouTube algorithm stuff?

  30. Antonio the double monk strap has been around the longest, but lacks the modern style that most people are currently looking for. The whole cuts and the penny loafers are more stylist and more artistically attractive. To get attention the shoes must have an artistic style and a sleek look that begs for people to both notice and admire.

  31. Hey, big fan! I too am a (young) man of style. But though i may not be as serious as you, i want to know how you started in fashion? I'm aware you went to the Marin Cor, thank you for your service, but how did you start in fashion when you left and how did you manage to make a name for yourself afterwards? If you have a video on this i will gladly watch it. Please & Thank You

  32. I'm a guy under 5'6 and it still hurts me not including in those normal people who can buy stuffs right off the shelf, especially dress shoes.
    Had to spend $$$ always for a custom ones. I'm a student, and it's pain in the wallet

  33. I'd have to agree with defensebydesign. I've gone through a transformation process with shoes since I started watching Antonio. Completely wiped out my old lesser quality shoes and have upgraded everything. The complements roll in almost on a daily basis and it's a good feeling. I never had any idea how much attention other people pay to your shoes but I've found it is a LOT. Thanks Antionio! for all that you do and for the great videos. Keep up the GREAT work you are doing.

  34. Great choices, all Antonio. I always get compliments on my double monks. I think a combination of the boot style you showed first and the swede you showed second is also a great in between for the three you chose. I love my blue suede chukka boots. They do grab attention.

  35. Please make a video recommending what to do if foot width is too narrow or too wide. Is there any limitation base on foot width? Thank you. Appreciate it.

  36. Nice video . I just feel sorry for the guys that can not afford nice shoes. Been there . I was out shopping with a friend and he said wish he could afford a 100 dollar shoes and laughed. Well I took him over to a mens shop and bought him a pair of nice shoes. It was the best 200 bucks I spent. He loves them. Now my wife wants new shoes.

  37. Antonio, on certain occasions I wear my old school Florsheim 5-nail v-cleat long wingtip dress shoes. These are vintage 1960’s shoes I wore regularly with a suit when I worked in the banking and insurance industry. Are you familiar with these shoes?
