I am about to make a substantial upgrade to my shoe collection. I am switching teams at my job and will be working in a fairly formal environment (suits 5 days per week). Right now I am in a very relaxed, business casual environment and rock an assortment of Cole Haans which are all on their last legs.
I plan to purchase 3 pairs of shoes and here are my current thoughts:
1) Captoe: Park Avenue in Black
2) Brogue: Either McAllister (wingtip) or Strand (captoe) - Not sure of color (McAllister in Brown/Walnut/Dark Chili/Merlot) (Strand in Brown/Walnut/Bourbon/Oxblood)
3) Plain: Carlyle - Again not sure of color (Oxblood/Walnut/Dark Chili/Bourbon/Brown)
I would like your expert opinions if this would be a good 3 shoe lineup. If you could also provide guidance on selecting colors between the McAllister/Strand and Carlyle I would appreciate it.
My suits are: Navy, Charcoal and Grey as base colors
