Rather than treating it as a timepiece or a way to keep time. Watches are often appreciated as a collectible works of art or a valuable piece of jewelry. Originally, wristwatches are designed as decorative bracelets for women, men usually uses pocket watches. But wristwatches became in style among men during World War I, it was easier for the military to use them than a pocket watch. Since then, it became one of the most popular fashion accessories among men for decades.
History of these watches shows that the first wristwatch for men that was created is from Cartier and they called it the Santos, named after Alberto Santos-Dumont, a pilot who personally asked Cartier to create a watch that he could use on his flights. Shortly after, the Santos became available for the public and just about every wrist watch manufacturer has made watches for men.
After creating several various markets for wristwatches, from the most expensive watches that serve mainly as personal adornment down to the most inexpensive but accurate watches mainly for its only purpose of telling the correct time. This became men fashion watches.
The conventional and appropriate men’s dress watches for formal, semi-formal and informal attire are gold, simple, thin, and bare. But recently men tends to fuse all their attire in one and the high cost has led to a belief among some that expensive rugged, complicated or sports watches are also dressy because of their high price. Some fashion watches have a gem or bead cut in convex form on the crown. Some are totally made out of facetted sapphire.
Another men fashion watches is called “geek” watches. They are watches that not only tell time but are also incorporated with some computer features, satellite navigation and many other functions that may be quite removed from the simple concept of timekeeping. There’s also the dual-time watch that is designed for travelers, it allows them to see what time it is at home when they are some place else.
The main difference between these two lacings is the lace-ups area. Blucher lacing are open-throat lacing while the balmoral lacing are closed-throat with a ‘V’ shaped lacing. Men requiring high instep or uses high insoles would definitely prefer the blucher lacing. The open-throat allows more adjustment to give way around the instep than balmoral lacing.
Lace-ups are the most acceptable styles around the world for businesswear. Dressiness of lace-up mens dress shoes styles starts from the smoothness of the leather used (rough grain leather are less dressy), followed by the type of lacing (blucher is considered more casual than balmoral), and finally the amount of detailing (the more details like perforation, the less dressy).
Slip-ons or loafers are the other option for mens dress shoes styles that has been regarded as the less formal dress shoes. But we should not assume that all slip-ons are casual. There is a particular category of loafers which are meant for the evening black-tie affairs.
Besides its ease of wear, it is also a versatile pair of mens dress shoes that can be clean in its cut with minimal detailing and suitable for both casual and formal wear. One of my favorite mens dress shoes styles. It is simple and yet elegant with an exceptional clean cut. The Plain-Toe Oxfords can have both the blucher lacing and balmoral lacing.
A Plain-Toe Blucher Oxford definitely has a less formal look compared to the balmoral lacing ones.
The Plain-Toe Balmoral Oxfords work well for both business wear as well as formal occasions that require a dressy pair of dress shoes. Its popularity lies on its versatility, elegant, and firm design that draws so many men to it.
The Plain Blucher Oxfords can also transform into a casual style suitable for business wear. The use of rougher grains of leather will make it look less dressy, and examples would be using crocodile skin to create such a look.
