You MUST buy those for when summer roles around. With the white pants and navy db blazer, man it will look Stellar.

Hmmm... the rating on the seller would give me some pause. You might want to check with,e.g., www.toolhaus.org . That said, I find that tan bucks and low-vamp slip-ons carry me through summer.

If you don't already have a light suede for summer I'd consider it, though tan might be more versatile...unless you favor Gatsby-esque resort wear.

Half my closet is filled with items I had no idea I needed until after I bought them.

Now, this is a dilemma. The shoes look like good quality, but the seller's percentage is not good. As for the footwear: go for it. As for the rating: go for it if the price is low enough to be worth the gamble.

You'd think with a moniker like Vintage Gent, I'd be telling you to snap these up. But a word of caution about vintage shoes: older does not necessarily mean better. I've gotten burned a few times with deadstock shoes from the 30s to the 50s that turned out to be very shoddily constructed and/or made with poor quality leather. Still, I agree they look very nice.

I share your dilemma. I saw a pair of white wingtips this weekend that I really liked. You know how some of your favorite music is the stuff you didn't like as much at first?...this could be one of those situations.
