JM Weston’s New Black Tie Collection

JM Weston 1

In the hopes to maintain a balance between a beautiful suit and immaculate shoes when attending formal events, JM Weston has created their very own Black Tie Collection. Introducing 5 new models (some more formal than others IMHO), they have created what they feel is the perfect offering to accompany the immortal dinner suit. I quite like the fact that they are not all patent, as I do truly feel that this idea of having patent footwear for formal occasions is a clich’ that needs to end. A well polished calfskin is far more elegant in my opinion. While the last shape might be a bit pointy for some, I personally find that it would highly suit a formal occasion as it’s slim-like and sleek nature correlates my idea of formality. Clunkiness or something too extreme (mega-round toe for example) in my brain, says “I don’t care,” and definitely does not scream elegance, so it’s nice to see something a bit more refreshingly elegant…

    The words ‘stunningly’ and ‘beautiful’ spring to mind….

    I particularly like the first pair of shoes (oxfords), but am unable to identify the exact model on the Weston website. Do you know the model name/number? Thanks…
