PS shoes (mainline dip dyed ones) are more comfortable from day 1 than any other dress shoes. C&J actually used to do some of PS shoes back in the later 90s iirc...and Trickers has done a PS line as well. Currently Joseph Cheaney is doing the "british made" PS shoes.
Quality-wise I think they are great.....the mainline shoes are mostly goodyear welted (but not all), the dip dye leather (again in mainline shoes) is awesome and looks really interesting. If you want to talk about banking and stocks, then get some AE/CJ/EG/JL etc. If you want to talk about good music, artsy shit, and chicks then get PS
