Off the rack? That's actually part of why I'm more of a shoe guy. I've always hated shopping, and with shoes you just go in look around, buy something, and if you like strap them right on your feet and walk out. I don't like waiting around for ages for even altered OTR suits, let alone MTM/bespoke, with multiple trips to the store, the possibility (probability) for screw-ups, and dealing with people that might just not care. Sure, it has to be done but with shoes you just avoid this "challenge" and move on to the wearing. I do like looking at cloth books though.
