Less formal than patent leather, but statement footwear no doubt. Velvet loafers look best with a velvet or patterned dinner/smoking jacket.

A slight twist on classic tradition, this version has an eye catching grosgrain band for detail
Not Black Tie? Shoes for the Suited Groom:
Dark Brown Oxford

Dark Brown Monk Strap
If you’re looking for a formal shoe option that’s more eye-catching than an oxford, the Monk strap is for you. Single or double strap, it’s up to you, they both garner compliments.
Honey Cap Toe Oxford
Honey, cognac, or tan leather shoes are great for warmer weather, outdoor weddings with lighter color palettes.
The Leather Sneaker
For the envelope pushing Groom, try a fun sneaker that will complement your perfectly tailored custom suit. Or maybe just put them on for dancing!
