I think your colour choices are already quite 'country' so it wouldn't hurt at all. And I think people are right (here and on SW&D) about your particular style and rounder-toed shoes. They work so much better for you.
(Also LOLing at Teger's comment that you should look at 'classic menswear'... )
well, many of them are i guess, but much of my SCs are pretty city and almost all of my shoes are.
and yes, i agree that i am better off with rounder lasts, i wish i liked them more than i do.
x-post from what i said in SWD
thank you, parker. mighty kind of you.
since you brought it up, this is an area i have struggled with for a long time. i know that my broader/larger build really calls for a rounder last like these marlows, but i have long hesitated for 2 reasons.
1. i simply like the look of more angular/aggressive dress shoes over that of more rounded ones.
2. i have a hard time envisioning a dressy outfit looking right with what i view as a more clunky shoe.
so, as to number 1, i just said to myself, suck it up and accept that you look better in shoes that you may not prefer. and as to number 2, i felt that with a more country look like i went with today, as opposed to a city look, that the rounded last really is actually better.
anyhow, sorry for the mini essay, but so is the story of my non pointy shoes, and i am pleased with the outcome.
and yeah, that was lulzy what teger said.
