It’s a bit too late to do Internet Christmas shopping, but the New Year’s coming, and with it fancy New Year’s Eve parties! I’m sure something here will be appropriate to wear for such an occasion.

klasycznebuty2klasycznebuty1 is perhaps the biggest Polish multibrand store with classic men’s footwear. A wide selection of models and brands in various prices should satisfy most enthusiasts of elegant shoes.

For the New Year’s Eve party, a nice pair of black oxfords is the most obvious choice. And team has got you covered: among their wide selection of classic black dress shoes, you should be able to find something that suits your needs without much hassle.

The Barker Nevis model is a classic with a twist: the serrated edges of the cap-toe. Elegant, proportionate last and Goodyear Welted construction are also present. If you’re on a tighter budget, you can go with Berwick, and their simple cap-toe oxford. Seriously, you should have at least one pair of such shoes.

poszetka2poszetka1 selles beautiful and high-quality accessories. Their products are usually in limited supply, and are made in Poland by hand using mostly Italian and British fabrics. Their main products are ties and pocket squares, but in their shop other things are available as well: from bow ties and cufflinks to leather bags and hats.

They’ve recently introduced braces/suspenders to their collection, and have a beautiful collection of both elastic and non-elastic ones (including fantastic tweed!). Black ones in the picture above will work great with your most formal suit or a tuxedo.

If you decide on a suit, you might want to add an elegant, classic tie: one of those six-folds made of Macclesfield printed silk for example. Hand cut and sewn, they are a thing of beauty.



Benevento is a company making trousers. They have over 20 years of experience in this area, and they utilize it well: they make very good, both quality- and design-wise, product, mostly using British fabrics.

While ordering, you can ask for custom changes – both when it comes to measurements, and details. Side tabs, button fly, pleats. Two basic fit types (regular and slim), variety of sizes (both waist and inseam), and possibility of custom modifications makes it possible to get a very well-fitting pair of trousers for various body types.

Depending on your plans for the New Year’s Eve, you might want to go with the navy flannel – elegant, but warm enough to keep you from cold once you go out to see the fireworks on the cold New Year’s night. If you prefer a weekend getaway to the country, and just want to sit with your friends in front of a fireplace – you can always go with a pair of corduroys.
