Grailed may not be the first place you think of when it comes to formal wear. That said, we at Dry Clean Only do not discriminate—in fact, we have an entire section of the site dedicated to tailoring. Though we often skew more modern, we realize that even in our business casual era a pair of dress shoes is a wardrobe essential. The fact of the matter is that you simply cannot wear sneakers to most job interviews or weddings—seriously, don’t be that guy—and need at least one dependable pair of leather shoes. Unfortunately, in our streetwear obsessed moment, many consumers don’t even know where to begin. That’s where we come in. While options range from daily drivers to special occasion slippers, below we break down the best dress shoes for any occasion.
