The Opera season will soon start and a true gent should dress accordingly for the occasion. It is the time when the black tie attire comes to it's glory accompanied and complimented by the Opera pumps. I am thinking of commissioning a pair of pumps, as oxfords seem odd to wear with evening attire. There is no need for me to shy away from these beautiful "court shoes".
