Fellow SFers, I need your guys help in choosing my first pair of C&J's. I'm still in college, so my style is casual (t-shirt and jeans) to business casual (casual dress shirts and chinos/non jeans). Since, i'm not wearing suits yet, I'm looking for something that is versatile with my style. In particular, I'm looking for Derby's in any colour but black. I'm 5'7, so I'm looking for something that isn't too elongated that will make me look clownish. (NOTE: Last 341 seems less elongated than the 348)
I was lusting over a pair of hand grade Brunswick 2, but its out of my budget (quoted ~$950). I can certainly see the amazing detail and quality put into these shoes. It blows my Paul Smith wingtip brogues out of the water. Anyways, my budget is more inclined towards the Main line (~$600), so far I've narrowed my list down to:
Norwich - dark brown
Draycott 2 - chestnut
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Cheers!
