So gents which is your favourite and why?
Would your preference change with material? (e.g. calf and cordovan)
and what's your favourite medallion pattern?
Pics are always welcome!
I usually sit on the fence when it comes to this particular discussion. But so far my verdict is:
Medallion for calf
Cap for cordovan
I think for calf the medallion distracts the creasing of calf making it look better overall and for cordovan the shine that cordovan has is interrupted if there is a medallion so a plain toe for that.
In both cases I prefer oxfords.
I agree with Macallan. The type of toe, and shoe in general, depends on the circumstances in which you are wearing it. I prefer plain toe for work, medallion for more casual atmospheres.
Agreed most people I think goes by this principle.
Out of interest does people here tend to have more cap toes being at work 5 days a week and all?
As I learned from GTA: Vice City...
"f you cannot support a medallion, you cannot support a family."
Of course, it's situation-dependent. The medallion is more casual, but it fits more with my present lifestyle. I still have plain-toes around though, for those times when I need to suit up more formally.
Yeah I wanted to fix that but once the first vote was cast the forum didn't let me change it...
Please cast all votes other than medallion or plain to neither.
