So I’m out shopping the other day, pretty much the same as everyone else nowadays. Anyways I went into Moss Bros looking for brown suede loafers, did I find them? No I didn’t, however I did find some absolutely sexy shoes that I will need to save for the perfect occasion. Now we all know black patent shoes are amazing, you’ve all probably seen the Ted Baker ones thats in loads of stores. You’re probably thinking why are these any different? Well they aren’t. These Moss Bros black patent shoes are exactly the same in quality and appearance, I suppose you could say the only difference is they are significantly cheaper at £80. I do understand that the Ted Baker ones have a blue trim and a different sole but we don’t worry about that.
When To Wear Them
Now normally you would only wear these shoes at a specific event, i.e. a black tie dinner but I’m all about going against the mould. Now don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying we should wear these to work, calm down that would be social suicide. With that being said you can wear these with all of your dark suits. I wear these on any nights out to the restaurant with the Mrs or to any event that’s out of the ordinary where I know I’m going to be out during the night. I don’t know why but black patent shoes just don’t look that good during the day.
Now I am aware that primark sold their own black patent shoe for £15 and I’m sure there’s other black patent shoes you could grab for £20-£30. Regardless of the company selling it, if you’re going to get black patent shoes make sure they are real leather. Everyone on the planet can tell if your wearing decent patent’s or not. Don’t be that guy trying to look rich.
