You can always slap him on the wrist with a ruler, I guess. The graduation was outdoors at 9:00 in morning. Faculty and...

A colleague wore a Haspel seersucker suit, white button down, and a nice Drakes pastel plaid tie. No problem. Footwear? He wore dark brown suede Merrill walkers. Knowing what shoes he owns, I said I thought his black captoes were more appropriate (the school dress code specifies black or brown dress shoes.) He...

I like the design on these EG Telford.

I think I solved the problem. First of all, I think I should have bought D width not E; that might have been a factor. I have an EG Beaulieu in an 82E; they fit great. On the Telford, I think the combination of the captoe and the rather low and forward cut of the adelaide throat combined to provide the discomfort where the shoe flexes.
