A man's silk necktie and his polished shoes are the two usual light reflecting elements in his dress. The advanced dresser substitutes a matte necktie for a relective one from time to time, and may don light absorbing suede shoes as another change of pace.
One unusual variation on the suede scene is the black suede oxford, as worn by both Cary Grant and Fred Astaire. During the day its light absorbing qualities add a discreet touch of the unexpected.
In the photos, A Suitable Wardrobe's beautifully shaped version of the black suede oxford, as executed by Gaziano & Girling. By special order, $1,050 per pair with metal toe taps and shipped from Nevada so there's never any sales tax. Email will at dynend.com for more information.
