Edward Green Cardiff, Nutmeg Suede

Contrary to popular opinion, quality suede is one of the most versatile and comfortable shoe leathers you can invest in. We’ve paired Edward Green’s classic captoe Cardiff blucher with fine-grained Nutmeg Suede and leather soles. They pair great with just about any color or texture. We’d wear them with a rumpled linen suit for a comfortable, elegant summer look.

Alden x Leffot Shortwing Derby, Hunter Green Suede

If you’re looking for something different but understated, try these hunter green shortwings from Alden. Made in suede on a classic pattern, they stand out from the regular browns and tans without looking ostentatious. And they come with brown, tan, and snuff laces so you can change up your look.

John Lobb Philip II Derby and Chapel

The Philip II is a classic, understated captoe made in Pewter Museum calf. Its elegance can be seen in the beveled waist, a feature of all Prestige collection shoes, and in the subtle punching on the cap, which makes the shoe slightly less formal than the City II. They’re versatile and elegant, and perfect for wearing with a suit, but also not out of place with jeans.

The Chapel is a double monkstrap made in dark brown Misty calf. Constructed from a single piece of leather that wraps around the entire shoe, they are distinctly elegant and uniquely John Lobb. They’ll work well in nearly any situation — with jeans all the way to a suit.
