Only then can an assesment be made.
OK, here's a pic of all my shoes that could be worn to work, and this is including the tan pair, which have been described as "the ugliest shoes in SF history":
Besides the tan, there's:
chocolate suede monks
black monks (I hardly ever wear these, I have come to favor brown shoes overwhelmingly)
medium brown wingtips
dark brown blucher
(I have a pair of the DC Lewis laceups in a light brown on the way...but other than that, any suggestions for next purchases once September is gone?)
As I said, I hardly wear the black shoes. The tan ones have been decreed an eyesore and are harder to match with things. If I put the bluchers on the DL until Sept is over, then I'm left with the suede monks and the wingtips. If it rains, that leaves me with just the wingtips.
The dark brown bluchers are the ones in trouble:
