Friends: I just updated my thread with pictures of walnut Jeffersons:  [[SPOILER]]  Stay classy, AEAT. http://www.styleforum.net/t/393780/be-a-classy-gentleman-tie-your-shoes-symmetrically
 Holy granny knot, Batman.  http://www.styleforum.net/t/393780/be-a-classy-gentleman-tie-your-shoes-symmetrically
[[SPOILER]]  The vast majority of men wouldn't notice, and the vast majority of men who noticed wouldn't care.  My opinion, therefore, is that those are fine for you to wear to an interview.  A black captoe would be better, but, eh, close enough.
I would wear a black balmoral captoe to an interview.  (AE's Park Avenue.)   Short of that, a dark brown balmoral captoe.  (AE's PA or Fifth Avenue.)
 I would imagine that a professional shoe-shiner knows how to shine all tones of brown calfskin shoes.
Apparently, at 5'10", 170 lbs, I'm morbidly obese in Hong Kong.   Curse your effete body type, Asians.
[[SPOILER]]  I usually prefer for buttons to be sewn on in a straight line instead of glued in a crooked one, but I think that's just personal preference. Cheers,BigRob

I bought a pair of walnut Jefferson seconds during the sale.  I was appalled when I opened the box -- the leather was splotchy and wrinkled in prominent places, the bottom of the cut in the leather for the laces was dented inward, and the lining by the heel of one of the shoes was so deformed I could feel it through my sock.  I've bought a few pair of AE seconds before, and I realize that the reduced price is to compensate for less than perfect aesthetics, but this was way...
