My budget would be $600.00 or so. I would like rubber soles, although am not opposed to leather soles. I live in Phoenix, so worrying about overshoes isn't much of a concern. I am looking for something I could wear with jeans and maybe nice chinos at night, although I typically wouldn't wear tan or khaki chinos at night. Hence wanting something black.
As I get older, I find myself wanting something a little better, more elegant, hip, whatever than black Doc Martens in the evening on dates, gallery showings, bars, etc. I don't want something too dressy, but more adult than Docs. College is over.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
That's just a slim-fitting tan-colored cotton suit. Brooks Brothers, Paul Stuart, and Ralph Lauren make several just like it every summer. As for the tie, it's a knit tie, and one can be had from any number of makers, but I recommend Howard Yount.
