Not sure if the OP is wearing a suit to work everyday, but if he is not..... I have worked at two investment banks and at a large consulting will stick out if you wear black cap-toes everyday (like some here have suggested)....virtually all analysts and associates in NYC and Greenwich wear loafers, mostly black, sometimes brown; bit loafers are common also. 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

are these the parklands?
I have both the evanston and melrose. Go with the melrose, much more versatile, comfortable, and I have gotten a decent amount of complements on them. I actually have rubber sole protectors on mine, adding even a little more versatility when it is a little wet outside. As an added note, I have a bit loafer from AE, not the Burbank, but the Verona....I like it alot, might be another option to consider. Those are the most comfortable of any AE shoe I have ever owned.

I am 23, and I pretty much only wear dress pants with pleats. My chinos/khaki pants are flat front though.

Hardly wear it now, maybe a pair of shorts or a hat or something during the summer. Their stuff is not great quality for the price, Polo/Brooks Brothers is much better. Have you ever taken a look at the vineyard vines blazer....a complete joke.
