I picked up some Park Avenue oxblood seconds this week and was wondering if this is pretty normal for seconds or if they're worth returning. The finish is pretty streaked and there's a nice cut in the side of the right shoe.
Looking for a little advice. My long-time partner and I are finally getting married in August, and we're doing an evening outdoor wedding and keeping it fairly easygoing. The lady has only made 3 requests of me, and those are that I wear a specific pair of black shoes (no problem, they're my favorite shoes too), that I don't wear the ugly 4-inch polyester silver/white wedding tie my dads stepdad gave me years ago when we started dating (also no problem), and that I wear...
I picked up a new suit, navy/brown plaid. The brown plaid is unnoticeable from more than a few feet, and even in bad light it just looks like a dark navy. I typically avoid black shoes with brown clothes, should I stick to that with the new suit? or does black go fine?
I walk about 6 miles a day as part of my job, mostly on concrete and asphalt and my shoes hold up just fine. I probably go through more soles and cleaner than most, but most of my shoes have held up just fine. I deal with dirt and stuff, but not bad weather, so that probably has a bit to do with it.
