Buy both devil.gif

I'll know I've gone too far if I end up owning both of these. I guess my question is: both shoes are gorgeous, and if I had to pick one, I lust more after the boots. But, will the shoes get more use?

One is a boot the other an oxford. How many cordovan wingtips do you have of each in your rotation?

You either need a boot or not a boot. There is a difference.

Here is my collection. I have one pair of dress boots, a pair of dark brown suede Loake (for Charles Tyrwhitt) chukkas.

The wingtips are actually bluchers/derbys.

So you need both as two shoes in not a "rotation". Perhaps these are a little too high end as you can buys 6 pairs of AE on sale for the price of two pairs of these. I'm not the biggest AE fan, but you NEED more shoes and perhaps should start lower-end.

I almost said derbys but wasn't sure. I thought bluchers usually have plain toes.

I don't think he needs more shoes. I only rotate 5 pairs of dress shoes, FWIW.

Really? Wow, that is very surprising for someone that has been on SF a while. SF unicorn maybe?

What are you talking about? Two shoes is not a rotation? I linked you to a collection of six pairs. Adding another would be seven.

Sorry buddy, but I think this is the worst advice I've ever received on SF.

I like shoes that fit close to perfect without going bespoke, so I have trouble hanging on to most of my shoe purchases. biggrin.gif

Calm down. I don't click on any links and I find people referring to something that they put on their feet a "collection" rather strange. Six pairs is fine, but I would argue that you probably need to get both the boots and the wingtips and perhaps the penny loafers. At least that's what I did.

If the worst advice you ever received on SF is that you should have more than two pairs of shoes, you are doing well my friend.

Edit: So, I clicked on your link now and it is not very diverse and you only have one pair of suede wingtips. I would argue that you "need" both and a pair or two of loafers.

Okay, sorry man. That was a misunderstanding. I see how if you didn't click the link, you thought I had a "collection" of one pair of shoes. And, if someone told me that, I would probably suggest that they not buy one of the RL shoes, as you suggested.

Both would be nice, but I would like to stick to one or the other (Lindrick or Marlow) for the time being. Perhaps I will reassess later after owning one of them for a bit. Agreed that a pair of loafers would be a good addition.

^^ Marlow for now, Lindricks next year..How's that? smile.gif personally, I find Marlow to be more versatile based on my lifestyle and work environment...
