I have a pair of tan sock Santoni FAMs nearly identical to those RL in design, a slightly more chisel-ly toe, square buckles, and a warmer colour overall getting darker toward the toes. Quite a sight to behold but they can tend to overwhelm outfits...
If you're wearing dry denim, anything in tan will stain a bit - they seem to think it's pretty rad over at SuFu, but I think it looks retarded. And yeah, agreed that there's no "appropriately professional" colour. Just don't carry an LV monogram and you'll be sweet...

Suede shoes are great, tan shoes are great, brogues or monks in either are better still...
As I've insisted on a few prior occasions, black has always been correct daywear at least for barristers, the field into which I am tentatively entering. One upon a time you'd have seen black jacket and waistcoat with solid or striped grey trousers, now I understand this is considered a bit gauche at least for juniors, and black all over is common. The alternative is to wear charcoal and change into a "bar-jacket" which is like a waistcoat with sleeves, used in some...
I think espresso black is very tasty - French press comes out a little watery. I take it with a dash of milk, just to break it up. It shouldn't interfere with the taste really too much...
As someone pointed out earlier, there's the risk of an exclusion/limitation clause in the contract. I know the law in England/Australia is that such a clause won't operate unless specifically brought to your attention, for this very reason. Can't speak for the U.S. law however. The other thing is, how important is their reputation to them, and are there avenues for you to "go public" (other than on SF) if you're not given satisfaction? I hate to play hardball, but in...
Looks like a scan from some Japanese magazine with an unfortunately homoerotic name (Fineboys, Men's Non-No, etc...)
I enjoy being a well-dressed, ostensibly successful citizen, who is nonetheless a political leftist. This goes nicely with my own philosophy that those who are doing well can really afford to look after the rest of the community (even though I'm young and not particularly affluent). I have a real desire to attend an anti-nuclear protest or something like that with a group of my fellow young professionals, all neatly suited and well behaved amongst the hippies...
I'm frankly sick of hearing the word "artisan". Just like "bespoke" and indeed "luxury", it's overused advertising speak, redeployed by status-seeking wankers to try to justify the exorbitant prices they pay for logo-ed crap. To be honest, the belief that the quality of stitching etc is a national trait unique to countries like Italy is naive at best, and verging on racist at worst. I know that there's tradition, culture, etc...but these only get you so far. I'll...
I don't mind the boldness per se, but the fabric colour and check colour don't go real well together. The other thought I had was, he shouldn't have cuffed the pants, or should have cuffed them in such a way that the pattern matched rather than creating one row of smaller squares at the bottom...
