The Brown Shoe

I feel like a good brown shoe should be a staple in a man's wardrobe. There are plenty of options for a brown shoe. You could go with a plain toe blucher, but plain toe is a bit boring and if you end up owning a pair of chukka boots then the chukka can serve as a plain toe. The saddle shoe is also another plain toe option. There is also the double monk strap shoe which is favored by a lot of people. If the double monk intriges you then I suggest that you read an increadiby in depth post by Die, Workwear on double monks.

I, for one, really like the norwegian split toe. It has more character than the plain toe and saddle shoes but is not as technical as the double monk strap.
