this is only remotely connected to the thread, but can the AE evanston be worn with a suit?
is it conservative enough to be worn to interviews and for work?
Also, would it be a bad choice for my first "real pair" of shoes?
how about offering them up here on styleforum?
there are always threads started by young members like myself on what a good shoe is or how to get them cheap. i have seen a couple threads in the B/S section giving away ties and shirts.
im sure your shoes given to members of the forum that are in need would be taken care of very well and they would be very appreciative.
