Shoes: Your most complimented pair of shoes (that youre not afraid to wear regularly) - Page 14

post #196 of 326
Little late to the party, but I'll say the shoes that get noticed, in order of popularity are:

C&J Lowndes in black



Alden shell cordovan whiskey longwing



Ralph Lauren darlton wing tip

Have only had them a short time, but I love my AE Hampsteads and they get tons of compliments.

If I may ask, who is/are noticing these shoes (i.e. are they random men, women, people from this forum, fashionistas, etc.)? I could see someone noticing the Lowndes because one doesn't see a double monk every day (people very, very occasionally notice mine for instance), but as for the other two, I am puzzled as to who would be noticing them.

Every time I look at the Chelsea boots, Hans Brinker comes to mind.

Glad someone got the joke. Nice work. Notice how I included the regression equation even though the x-axis is qualitative discrete data? Har har!

I'd agree, if this was medical research. This was an anecdotal survey, with a 2 day turnaround, and it was quite useful to me. I'll leave the 40 page peer reviewed research version to you...

Yes, but I do. If you noticed, about a dozen types of shoes were proposed. Now, if I mindlessly bought all 12 pairs, you might have a point. But, I have no interest in things like horse-bit cliches, and hipster sneakers, no matter how much they are complimented. If you notice the FIRST picture in this thread, it's a pebble grain longwing. My personal favorite to start things off. In fact, guess what I bought? Just one new pair. A pebble grain wingtip boot. (Next is a chestnut colored wingtip) Stuff that is already within the parameters of my existing taste and style, but with a little variation. So, as Made in Calif keenly observed, I am merely using this thread for new ideas, like almost everyone on SF. At the end of the day, everything still needs to pass by my personal style filter. And you're right, I do have a clearly defined sense of style. I am just refining my office wear, and dressing a little more sharply (older) in social settings. Basic stuff that fits right, with a slight bit of flair (like a knit or grenadine or Shatung tie) Dress shoes, slim fit pants, belt, slit fit dress shirt, tie, watch. I came to SF to turn it up one notch (not 3): This does not mean black watch pants or tophats, or even vests. One step above the generic business casual polo shirt and khakis norm.

I know better than to pay full retail should I ever have to purchase them again.

+1, gorgeous.

And I think it's gonna be a long, long time

I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no, no, no
I'm a strawman

I get a lot of compliments on my, um, Cole Haan Air Colton split-toes.

Also, the other night a middle school girl (at the synagogue where i work) complimented me on my slim ox chuck taylors.
