Dress shoes--what next?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Okay, here is a pic (assuming I make the pic thing work) of all but one of my dress shoes (or dressy casual shoes) and what am I missing/what should I get next?  (Help spend my money).  Also, just for fun, who can ID the shoes here??  These are fresh from polishing....

Are those brown captoes Kent Wangs?  They look great.

Double monk strap seems like a good pick. Although the mainstream style world has just caught on to them in the last year or so, they've been a style forum favorite for years.

oxfords 7

derbies 1

loafers 0

I'd grab a longwing or a whole cut.  Double monk isnt a bad call either.

 

I really don't wear loafers or I'd suggest that.

Backinthejox:  which cap toes do you like?  The one with brogueing or the plain cap toe?  Neither are Wangs.  

 

Full disclosure:  I have one pair of Santoni tassel loafers I rarely wear as well as a burgundy cap toe not pictured as it is a repeat of one f the pictured shoes.

 

i don't know why I have not gone for a monk strap yet.  That might be a good semi dress shoe.

 

surprised no one has any guesses on the shoes yet (or at least correct ones).  Some of these are pretty common....  :)

I'm talking about the plain ones.  The others are obviously Strands (along with the other Strands, some McAllisters, a Walton, and a Park Ave).

 

Edit: those black brogued cap toes might not be Strands actually

Close on some.   Yes, the lower left are walnut shell Strands.  That is the only pair of strands, however.  No McAlister, no Walton.  There is a black Park Ave second from right on bottom.  Two down, six to go.  Hint, only two of the remaining six are AE.

You could use a pair in suede, IMHO.

Suede shoes probably in chocolate brown are on my radar.  Whole cut also a good idea.  Thx.

 

no one knows the shoes?

How about some boots?

No collection is complete without at least one pair of loafers IMO.

+1. Great for airport security, look great with casual clothing, especially during the summer, and can even be worn sockless if that is your thing. I am not wild about tassels but pretty much any other loafer is great.

Hmmm, loafers, whole cut, boots, monkstrap, suede.....this is getting pricey!  Guess I could get suede monk chelsea boots...;)

 

guess this is not a guessing crowd.  In case anyone is interested, another hint is there are only two brands of shoes represented.....one is obviously AE.
