Had an interesting conversation with my wife, and then later a co-worker, on what is considered dressier or more casual.
Can you guys please order these 4 shoes from casual to dressy, at least in terms of what you could get away with?
1) Brown grain First Ave (with dainite sole)
2) Tan McTavish
3) Bob's Chili Bleecker Street
4) Merlot Franciscan
My wife felt that the McT's and Franciscans were the dressiest, because they were the fanciest and had broguing; Bleeckers were the most casual becuase they were plain.

Well the forum answers to this question will be interesting. For those who weigh in, I think we should provide an order rank for forum members AND then a rank order for those who are not shoe aficionados. For me, the most "dressy" is the Franciscan and the others are toss ups for various reasons. Many non forum people will agree with your wife.
