Florsheim Imperials -are- quietly elegant. I've been spending too much time drooling over Lobbs lately and it wasn't fair of me in my earlier post. I forgot to...

I would call them 'Classic Traditional American/British', not 'elegant'. I have 3 pairs of them. If you have never worn a pair of these, be aware they are heavy. I mean the physical weight of them.

The color of mine is something uncommon on a wingtip and I enjoy my BR's very much. I receive a LOT of compliments and they are very comfortable.
