Thank god I don't have to wear suits to work!!


No such thing as too many two-toned shoes/boots. At least.....I hope not! I'd have to restart my whole footwear collection!

All my boots save one are two-toned, two-textured (calf and suede), or both. Some spectators are probably next on my list on the shoe front....I figure a guy living in a place that's warm and sunny 9 months out of the year probably NEEDS them.

I have a few both shoes and boots and I've found them to be a good addition.

Calf and suede tend to be my favorite combinations.

Agreed on that combo.

I'm definitely a boot guy and also in the process of restarting my shoe collection; it's been easier for me to find two-toned or two-textured boots that look good without being too ostentatious than it has been for shoes. I rarely have to be CBD, so there's more freedom for me, but it's finding the right balance for shoes that look great, but don't scream "clown shoes".

G&G has a number of models that look good to include the Walkton as well as the St James. If I were you you might want to look at the EG Malvern, Falkirk, and Harrogate. For boots the EG Galway is fabulous in Calf and Suede. Similar colors add a bit of spice without looking to clownish.

Yeah, there are a lot of contenders. My G&G Wigmores are two toned/textured and I think they are the perfect boot for that kind of thing. A Galway (or Galway-esque Holman from J. Fitzpatrick) is also going to happen in probably a dark green calf/dark brown suede make up and I like the idea of a green/grey and blue/grey in Wigmores or EG's Shannon (or, again, J. Fitzpatrick's Wedgwood).

To keep it G&G related, I love a lot of their shoes (Sinatra in stingray is calling to me for a ridiculous black tie shoe) but I think I like them best in calf only. This is, of course, completely ridiculous and I have no good reason for it.

Ah, more into the dressier boots. Nice, but mine have been more casual with the Galways, Malvern, and Hutton. I also have a C&J and Carminna spectator as well.

I actually went in on Skoaks Pre-Order for the Kudu\Cedar Calf St James. I can't wait to get my hands on that one. It's due in Sep I believe it was.

In regards to the Sinatra I do get it. Some shoes or boots don't work for me as much in one combination as they do in anothe for whatever the reason. Just as I have tended to gravitate towards the casual as you have the dressier options. Different strokes for different folks.

Hey, they're still doing better than my pair of Falkirks.

I'm now going on the ninth month since they were ordered.

To make matters worse It looks like the color won't be anywhere close to what I expected.

Wow man. You shoe guys are more patient than boot guys. I'd be bouncing off the wall
