Modern Wingtips are a world removed from swamp waders. Now they are an essential wardrobe and, as befits any piece of men's clothing, have been transformed into new and occasionally unrecognizable forms. A pair of Wingtips will work with almost anything, if you buy well. And don't be shy about opening your wallet; it's an area of your wardrobe where every pound pays dividends. If you spend a little more, you'll be more comfortable, more elegant and your shoes could last more than a decade.
