At that price, you can't beat it! I've been waiting for the Cherry Moores to go on sale for a couple of years.

Might just be the angle. As long as they do their job and prevent toe wear I'm happy. smile.gif

Cherry

That's what I figured.

 

I had been looking at them quite a bit the last week or so, but your pictures convinced me.

 

Thanks, now I'm sure I did the right thing.

No I agree that its good that they do their job. My comment was that I dont like non-recessed toe taps, just looked strange. Shoes look magnificent though!

Hey guys

 

Seems the cherry colour gets a lot of love in SF. Was wondering whether anyone has both the cherry and the oxblood Moores? I thought the cherry would be like a burgundy but appears more like a brown with a red hue instead. And the oxblood looks like a very dark brown with purplish hues.

 

Looking at both due to the sale but not quite sure which would be best for a collection which already includes a black, medium brown (like a darker tan), dark espresso brown and burgundy shoes. Best answer would be 'both' biggrin.gif but....

 

Opinions anyone? Thanks in advance.

Hm, i reckon Oxblood is more burgundy with a dark brown red touch, as I have the Drake in Oxblood, and from the various photos, the Cherry the a lighter shade with a bit a maroon.

Since you already have 2 pairs of dark brown shoes, should get a pair of cherry! happy.gif

Thanks wurger.. Good point indeed, my burgundy is a semi-brogue too (with a medallion) so I think the cherry would be the better choice and would add to the collection rather than having more of the same...  Anyone know when the sale af AFPOS would end? 

 

The cherry would go well too with charcoal pants and dark blue denim I think satisfied.gif? Going to be a casual Friday shoe...

I am surprised you only have one pair of black shoes, everyone wears black everyday in most Sydney office environment, and where I work, we took away casual fridays since it affected productivity too much ...dozingoff.gif

There isn't a dress code where I'm at but most people do tend to dress conservatively still, even on Fridays. But you see a lot of jeans and occasionally T-shirts on Fridays than the rest of the work week. And people tend to be 'loopier' on Fridays.

 

Black shoes with jeans just look 'off to my eyes. Hence the search for a different colour.... The cherry is looking more interesting now. Had my mind set on the oxblood for some time...

I have a single black pair with virtually no wear. I find my range of browns and burgundies, across calf and shell, provide much more character. I'll also note that I don't own a black suit or trousers (except my tux) so my darkest trousers are usually charcoal, which play well with dark browns. Lastly, 95% of the time I wear and odd jacket combo and not an actual suit so that affects my wardrobe too.

Black shoes to me, especially day-after-day, just scream "drone". I understand it's different if you're in a formal profession and atmosphere, but ... ugh, not for me.

You should also disclose that you live in Florida, the sartorial wasteland. Formality and conservative attire is frowned upon here.

No one would notice or care if you never wore black shoes...

Absolutely, what you wear is dependent on the location and environment. I actually don't have a single black suit or tux, just various shades of navy, charcoal and grey. For my current shoe collection, I have even split of black and brown, 6 each. I do find brown more interesting due to the different patina and shades, but to be on the formal and safe side I mostly wear black due to client meetings.

A pair of well polished high shine black shoes is noticed by many, sophisticated but not too flashy. IMO, black brings out mirror shine the best, I also find my black shoes are higher mantainence than browns, as they show dust and stain spots easily, more elbow grease required every week satisfied.gif

You, sir, are correct. I think I've gotten so accustomed to being here that I've forgotten: it's not me that's rakishly different ("Look ma, no black shoes!") but rather that this Godforsaken peninsula doesn't require or even appreciate a good suit that would necessitate some fine black shods. Heck, I've lost sight of the fact that the reason I'm odd-jacket'ing instead of suits is because even my odd-jacket wardrobe is considered "overdressed".

Never having been to Sydney, I'll presume that wuger's need for black shoes is more in line with custom there and, in the future, adjust my comments for "when in Rome"

I'm considered a dandy for wearing derbies here on Florida, haha...

Keep rockin those sports coats, you are the best dressed man here. Should be easy enough to spot, I'll say hi next time I spot a well dressed chap smile.gif
