Gentlemen, your shoes say a lot about you—but so does what you drink! For your next holiday party, see if your shoes match your drink of choice. Here are some of our thoughts (and hey, opinions vary—feel free to give yours, too in the comments!):

He’s classier than most of the guys around you at the bar, but he stays humble. He might be a little reserved or soft-spoken at times, but he’s always polite and dependable. Men who drink gin know what they want. A lace-up oxford like the Aston Grey Tokyo will suit him perfectly.

A beer drinker is easygoing, laidback, and unapologetic. He sticks with what works for him—whether that means a domestic draft beer or a classic black oxford without all the frills.

Cole Haan Williams II Oxford $149.95 (Compare at $228!)

Bourbon drinkers are passionate—about what they drink, about the things they’re interested in, and probably about their sense of style. They’ve got a refined taste and will appreciate the subtle details of this oxford, like its laser-cut cap toe.

He likes to drink vodka? He probably likes to have fun. Which is just what the Mercanti Fiorentini Wingtip Oxford is, with its wingtip styling and brogue details. Cheers!

Whatever you drink, whatever you wear, there’s one solid rule for every holiday party: Have fun (and drink responsibly)!
