I am purchasing two shoes...both in some sort of darker brown, or color 8. 1. Workhorse, wear often, shoe for work. Likely a full-strap slip-on loafer or a wing tip bal. 2. I also will be purchasing a pair of boots. It is important that they do not have a leather sole, but other than that I haven't thought too much about what style boot. I was thinking originally of an Indy Boot by Alden (available in both calf and cordovan) or maybe a more stylish chelsea, chukka or...

For my dress pants (wool) I find that single pleat pants with a cuff look best on me. So two questions... 1. Where do you find decent single pleat pants at a reasonable (<$250) price? I have never been big into fancy pants so I have generally just gotten pants at Brooks Brothers...problem...they seem to only have flat front and double pleated pants. 2.

I am not saying I agree with this, but it is what you will experience. I actually had an MD tell me to...
Looking to purchase some brown dress shoes. I am a 10.5 D in Allen Edmonds and most other makes. Would consider both oxfords or loafers, all I ask is for them to be decent quality, fairly priced, and conservative looking.
I lived in Boston briefly Cant help with the tailor, but for a cobbler Waban Shoe Repair is your best bet; the next best is the guy in harvard square...forgot his name, but it cant be hard to find

(I suspect that mine are corrected grain, but I don't know whether they have the "new, shiny finish" advertised for the current model. They're not beautiful, but the leather isn't too bad looking,...
