Hey everyone, new to the forum here. I'm 25, been in to style for a while but apparently I didn't know what I thought I knew about it until I browsed this forum for a few months.
I wanted to start slowly upgrading my wardrobe starting with the shoes, since they're my favorite part. I've got a few Cole Haans right now but the more I read, the more I saw they're not so desirable. I've had one of the pairs for just a few months, worn them four times and they already have ugly creases in the toe area. I'm sure I'll keep them for casual wear since they're still comfortable. I got one on sale, $60. That's pretty worth it for new Cole Haans, right? :-)
What are good suggestions for some a reasonable price on single monk strap shoes? Something to go with navy suits. I don't want something that looks like it's been through the blender after just a few wears, something I can keep for years to come if I treat it right. My price range is just about $300. Preferably suede as well, I've always liked the look of brown suede single monk straps. I'm willing to go a little higher for MTM/bespoke but my guess is they're well out of my price range.
Thank you for your help! I look forward to being an active member and eventually contributing.
