Studs, other than me I haven't seen too many pair a hidden placket with tuxedo. I like the super clean look it gives.

I'm still in a training bro or I might.
I use a M-clip, haven't used a wallet in over a decade - couldn't stand sitting on them and I don't need to pack a lot of shit like a woman.

I'd be careful, I had a pair of suede loafers stretched by a cobbler and they went from looking brand new to looking worn even though the leather itself wasn't visibly damaged. It's hard to describe but you can just tell the shoes have been stretched out and it doesn't look so good to me.

My Guccis are all pretty lightweight since they use Blake stitching and a single, thin leather sole so I think that is a good point.

Ah, those would work (and look tasty) but I'd opt for a dress shoe myself - it's seriously blazing hot there 24-7-365 - so any extra leather to build up heat is something I'd personally pass on. I don't even wear all leather sneakers in the summer typically. What I found so crazy when I was there is the vast...
IMO, assuming the fit is actually perfect then I'd opt for that - I buy several brands that aren't "SF-approved' because they fit me OTR and fit/look is more important to me than construction methods and even materials.
