Great poll. I wonder what city is the most formal (not necessarily best dressed, but most "dressed up")?
How about "Tiffany's box"-colored blue tie? I always like that with grey flannel & white. Otherwise, get yourself a blue gingham check or houndstooth shirt and a light grey cashmere tie.

FWIW, I'm a US 9.5D, and take an UK 8.5E in the 337. For the 348, (Hallam, Lowndes, etc.) I go to a UK 9E, but the 348 is very narrow.

@Mbkoissy (OP): Beautiful SCs!!! Congrats. Technical question: Do you get most of your shoes online/through the mail? I notice you're in Washington DC, which is not exactly a shoe mecca. Skyvalet has a small collection of C&J and EG, but otherwise, nice shoes are not easy to come by. The Neiman's etc. barely carry anything other than corrected grain Gucci & Prada crap... How do you manage sizing? Trial and error?
Honestly, with the rubber sole and odd blue spray-paint effect, they scream "outlet mall bargain bin" or Filene's basement at best. You could probably get away with using them at a club if you're in your 20s, but that's about it, unfortunately.
I'm a 9E in the 348 and an 8.5E in the 337. (US size 9.5D)
