And yet, you can't even look up the meaning of context in that dictionary. By the way, I had no issue with your post or seven-fold's post, which is why I quoted neither of you. My issue was with the poster who labeled my advice as pure I-Gent fiction when the advice was correct for the OP's question (the same question you still have stubbornly refused to acknowledge). That's context. As is a pedantic, overly-literal poster that is ignoring the fact that his experience with a 20-plus shoe rotation may not be on point or the best advice for someone with a five shoe rotation. But hey, life seems much simpler when the tunnel vision is on.
I am unclear what number of shoes in rotation means within the context of your statement. I could have 101 pairs of Black Brogues, but by your statement they would all be useless if I bought just one pair of Burgundy Shell.
In any case, it's not like shoes are terribly expensive, compared to suits.
Also, this is supposed to be a thread about AEs, of which I have exactly one pair (Black Oxfords, natch), which come out for weddings and job interviews only. For everything else, there's Loakes.
