To you suede enthusiasts.....I'd like to buy a pair that I could wear both casually with jeans or chinos and at work with business casual (trousers and sportcoat) if I want to give off a more casual vibe. Would a darker, chocolate suede be more versatile and appropriate (like what Hampton just posted, or the Edward Green's from Spoo), or a lighter tan like you'd see in a buck? thanks!
I don't know what your budget is but I do love my EG. You can find similar models from other makers but I have two pairs of shoes that I have worn with everything from a casual suit to jeans:
In addition, I don't know what people here are spraying on their shoes but I advise against it. Suede should be brushed and cleaned regularly. It will start to get some patina with time but as long as you are not changing your oil in them they clean off just fine. Also, I don't understand some member's fear of water as suede can be washed.
