In the midst of wedding planning and wedding dress shopping and finding the perfect wedding favors and invites, it suddenly dawned on me that my future husband was in dire need of, well…everything! Not only did he need a black suit (he had never owned one before), tie, cufflinks, and a crisp white shirt, but shoes! Seriously, the men’s dress shoes were an issue. And if it were up to him I’m not 100% sure he would have gone shopping for a new pair. But off we went, and he basically got his entire wedding outfit in one day, which made me a little jealous. Not only was he so much easier to shop for, but he still wears everything he bought to this day! Can you say that about your wedding dress or shoes? Nope! LOL.
That is the great thing about the groom’s wedding day essentials. That suit (or even tux) he wore will get a ton of use down the road, whether wearing both pieces together or just the jacket with a pair of jeans. And a gorgeous pair of men’s dress shoes will DEFINITELY be worn again and again and again, which is why you should always look for a pair that will last you forever!
We’re big fans of this best-selling dress shoe from Paul Evans, pictured above. Made in Italy and designed in New York, their Martin Wholecut is a favorite among grooms and comes in black, oxblood, and several shades of gorgeous brown. Guys who have worn them say they are one of the most comfortable pairs they’ve ever owned, and that compared to other designer brands that charge 5 x the amount, they completely blow them out of the water. Read all the reviews here!
The reason these shoes are so stellar for such a great price is because Paul Evans completely eliminates the middleman, meaning they can deliver hand-crafted men’s dress shoes from Italy direct to you for way, way, less. They use the same Italian calfskin leather that the best designers in the world use, and work with a factory in Naples run by artisans that have been making shoes for generations. And you can totally tell the difference.
