Hello guys! How are we doing? Hope we are all good.
So today’s blog post is about men’s dress shoes(lacing)👞👞👞
I know some will be like “why isn’t he talking about all the interesting stuff?!… little details are most times ignored,but they add a lot more to your dressing.
Talking of shoelaces,shoestrings.etc
It doesn’t matter what you call them.
They all do the same thing; they keep your footwear secured and comfortable while you wear them. Wearing quality shoes is not enough but knowing how to lace them properly shows that you have style!.
How To Tie Shoes Tie Right Way
First of all,for men’s dress shoes,it could either be close-laced shoe or open-laced shoe (straight lacing)
So let’s take a close look…
Starting at the bottom, thread the lace through the eyelets, entering in through the top. Pull through and make sure each side of the lace the same length.
Thread one lace through the bottom of the first eyelet on the same side, so it comes out the top.
Go across horizontally, and thread it through the topof the eyelet on the opposite side.
Now, with the other shoelace, go through the bottom of the first open eyelet on the same side .
Repeat the process until you are at the top.
I usually tuck the laces inside when finished because I think a “bow” ruins the clean look.
It is essential to have quality shoelaces made of waxed cotton because cheap, thickand coarse shoelaces will ruin the look
of your shoe laces. 80cm – 31.5″ is the perfect length because it works for 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 rows of eyelets basically covering the entire spectrum of lace-up men’s dress shoes. The thinner your laces are the better the quality. Of course, that’s onlytrue if the laces don’t rip but usually poor quality laces are not made to be very thin because they would break right away.You don’t want the shoelaces to snap when you pull on them.
For 95% of men’s boots 120cm – 47.25″long laces are perfect, If you have chukka boots, or other boots with just 2,3,4 or 5 rows of eyelets, you should go with regular dress shoe laces. For all other boots, 120cm – 47.25″ is the ideal length.
Shoe Laces When wearing a tuxedo or tailcoat, most men today wear a patent leather oxford shoe with ordinary cotton shoe laces, whereas elegant gentlemen during the heydays of men’s clothing, would only wear opera pumps or oxfords flat silk shoe laces for evening wear because the wide, flat shoe laces will create a little bow, that looks just like the bow tie your wear around your neck.
You can Mix Your Shoelace Color with Shoe Colors.Today, you can basically mix and match your shoe colors in any way you want. If you want to be strictly classic, you stay with brown and black shoelaces or generally darker laces that match the shoes. However, because there are so many shades of browns, you should play around a little bit to see what really works! At the end of the day, it’s all up to your creativity. Now, you can achieve thefinal look you desire!.
