Very much so. Although I'd also suggest looking at the cap toe.

Thanx mymil. I do know how to care for my shoes, do a mirror spit shine etc. It's to understand how they create that antiquing I'm after.

A common site at management level interviews include bicycle toe'd shoes and square toed shoes. I think you are leagues above the rest for simply even considering the whole cut

What about the punched cap toe? I'm unsure how the Armoury last fits.

Extremely narrow, according to the staff att Skoaktiebolaget. Even narrower than the Simpson last.

Many thanks...kind of brings up a dressing to your audience. Is there such a thing as being "overdressed" for an interview, i.e. wearing nicer shoes/clothing than the person doing the interviewing?

From what (very little) I understand about business environments, the big no-nos are wearing things which are usually only worn by higher ranked employees, e.g., double breasted suit jackets, or a 3 piece.

I foolishly miss out the first time, then the restock is delayed by two months. Classic.

Whole cut and plain cap toe would be perfectly suitable, punched cap toe a little less. I prefer the look of the whole cuts primarily because I think the rain last works better for that style of shoe than the forest.

Most likely by using a cream polish in a color darker than the original leather. Just be careful around seams and brogueing---go over them only when your applicator seems completely out of polish.

I agree and the Rain last is a perfect shape for the whole cut.
