All critiques are good. It is a true test of one's ego.

My comment on AAS has nothing to do with what I've worn in the past.
Recently you, PB, add nothing but snark to the forum. I understand you are way too "cool" and to "senior member" to actually contribute something other than BS here, but what do I know...

No arguments there.

Mimo.. are you on a 'nice' kick or something? Mid-year resolution?

 

I think most of us have a tendency to express our opinions more stridently on the internet than in real life, and I would hope usually with tongue obviously in cheek.  "Horsebit loafers must be burned, and the ashes exorcised" is a perfectly reasonable statement for this thread, but not designed to offend, really.  So if I do, or might have done, I consider it gentlemanly to reassure fellow posters of my good intentions. I guess it varies from thread to thread anyway.  This is the worst, of course.  TWAT is probably the best.  And in "Ask a question" I'm borderline beatified.

 

Anyway, I'm always nice.  Jerk. lol8[1].gif

What is happening here.  Can I buy everyone a drink?  cheers.gif  

 

It's just clothes people.  Let's all hug it out.  fistbump.gif

 

Thank you for the suggestions.  I will take them to heart, but it may take some time and some money which I'm not made of.  I got all my shoes for under $90.  Most under $75.  I should take better care of them and I've been making an effort as of late to do so.  

 

I really do appreciate any comments you guys offer.  No one's opinion is wrong.  I have opinions, but I'm open to suggestions.  inlove.gif

 

These are all of my current shoes.  These are the pickings.  Don't you all love how I have these things available.

^^AAS....IMHO those blue canvas sneakers would look awesome with that fit on the boat.

Your hair is better. I'm off products so it is kind of inconsistent at the moment. Clapy has awesome hair too.

SIGGED.

why are you off product?!

I know I am not alone in this, but I personally don't understand loafers and sneakers. I mean, there is always a better option unless you are wearing sneakers playing a sport of some sort. Loafers always come across as lazy to me. It is one thing that I notice about most trends. In order for something to take off it has to be obtained cheaply, and be easy. This seems to be the recipe that leads to a fad. Now loafers, of course, aren't a fad at all(even though they kinda are right now), but they are quite the opposite of a fad in their history, but tell me what loafer looks better than a norwegian split-toe? Or a wingtip derby? Or a suede buck? That's right, nothing.

Some say it is a weather thing. Anything else is too robust for the weather. Ok, it is hot, I understand that, but not so hot that it would make me want to wear loafers.

one cannot get by on captoe balmorals alone. Variety is the spice of life.

AAS:

 

1.  Shapeless

 

2-5. Tasteful, classic designs, but do they fit?  Instep looks a little low for you from this angle (same for me with some US shoes) and the last shape might not be ideal for you.

 

6.  Not bad, but again, fitting properly?  Down one size, up one width perhaps.

 

7.  Hard to tell; classic style, why do they look so loose around the heel?

 

8.  Meh.  Conceptually nice, but look as cheap as you say they were.

 

9. For teenaged girls, or at a push, jeans and dim light.

 

10.  Shapeless AND horrible.

 

11. Robustly horrible.

 

12, 13.  See 9

 

14. Fucked.

 

15, 16.  Rather nice from this angle, and the kind of thing I think others suggested as consistent with your style (not PB, obviously, but until you've five black captoes side by side, he can never love you).

 

17, 18.  Disposable.

 

19-22.  Pop the Zippo, call a priest.

 

 

You're in the City.  I suggest getting measured up at Allen Edmonds or similar.  I suspect, like a lot of people, you are up-sizing a lot instead of going up a width.  Your heel shape might also be causing you some fit issues - but only you know.  With a bit of ammunition on your size and experimenting with some sizes and last shapes, I think you'll be in a better position.  Actually, as someone failry new to AE myself, I find them quite helpful: they have seemingly infinite size variations and a few different lasts, so it seems a good place to experiment, and a well-known starting point for subsequent reference ("I'm a 10E in AE 5 last, what size in....?" etc).

 

Sharper loafers are already in your locker by the look of it, as are some classic dress shoes.  Put some investigation into what really fits you. Maybe if you like things a bit more casual, try some dress styles in suede, also a chukka and a monk.  There's a whole world of joy out there.
