How To Wear Tan Shoes by Aquila

Tan, that unique shade of brown has become a gentleman’s best friend in recent times. Along with leather bomber jackets and vintage watchstraps, tan has become a prominent shade of brown within men’s footwear.

The unique thing about tan? Comprising both dark and light tones, you can wear it with almost anything.

1) Denim – When rocking a pair of tan shoes with denim, the shoe itself must be more of a casual style. Light, dark and even distressed denim can work well with tan footwear. The Cassidy Tan is a perfect example of a casual lace up in the perfect shade. Roll the bottom of your jeans up a little and you’re set.


2) Coloured Pants – Whether you choose to throw on a pair of killer white, red or even green pants, tan shoes will fit effortlessly into the equation. When wearing bold coloured pants, monk strap shoes, like the Cutler Tan are ideal and add a little more character to your outfit to help you achieve that famed European style.


3) Navy & Grey Suits – Slim, short cut and bold – that’s how you should wear a navy or grey suit, and in particular the Jones Royal Blue. For such a suit, you require the perfect footwear to complete an all-round sophisticated gentleman’s look. In comes the Clapton Tan, the perfect pair of handmade Italian brogues. The glossy, classical look help to cap off a clean-cut look.


Finally, tan shoes look just as stylish with or without socks, for the cooler months we think Tan styles are best paired with fun and unique patterned socks in spots or stripes.
