I wear dainite soled black calf chukkas in very wet conditions - they always feel a compromise between looking right and practicality, but a slim fitting suit helps to a degree.

Otherwise, they look like normal bals.

WHat makes these less c than anything else IMO is the colour.

Hoping to rectify that with a refinish to dark oak.

They'll look great in dark oak (although I like them as they are).

SM Black Captoes
I'm not really in the appropriate part of the world to comment on sack suits, but the captoes look good and I like the socks.

Thans - it's not that shiny (the low morning sunshine probably exacerbates it) but I'sd like it in a matte silk/wool blend, and the solid suit is a definite 'in retrospect'.

Formal boots certainly pre-date shoes, and were considered more correct for several years, however in terms of contemporary dress I think it's their uncommon nature that would make them non CBD.

True navy. Felt like wearing something clean & simple.

It falls in the department of french cuffs for me, they're just a bit much for most interviews. I'd much rather stick with barrel cuffs and a neat pattern.

Unless there is a microphone you'll have a hard time convincing me it's a speaking engagement.

I see no issue with Chukka boots as CBD, Ed Morel wears them all the time, looks fine.

While I fully agree w/ you, using Ed as a shining example of CBD is hilarious to me.

I wouldn't think anything of it if i saw someone dressed as Ed does at a corporate office.

Sometimes I miss dressing for the office. Then I wake up hung over and grab the same jeans every single day. Profit.
