You are a pretentious bore, koji, and to think that so many tiresome sycophants feel the need to overlook your insulting rubbish, while focusing on my logical resistance to it is truly mindboggling. A place where truculent twits like you are prized in this fashion is of no interest to me. As to manton's Grayson remark: I was unimpressed with the fellow's unrelenting negativity, but you are another of these sanctimonious malcontents; I have no connection to the guy, but in spirit, we are not so far apart, since Grayson was at least honest in his judgments. And I have never until this very post insulted a bloody soul, but koji is a risible little wretch. And to all of you who rushed to defend the indefensible: congratulations on your weak, politically correct herd mentality. Miserable peasants. J: you may block me from posting on the site, but it would be wasted effort, since I will now depart of my own volition. And congratulations again for providing a forum that gave me great pleasure for a short period, and where many persons benefit from sterling advice.
Arigatou for making my evening. This is by far the funniest insult ever directed towards me (and probably the funniest one ever). May I excerpt this to use in my press kit? koji

Uh.. thanks? Nice having you; that was still the most eloquent flamefest I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Good luck to you wherever you may go on to argue in the future.

Now, before you go Compton on me, I fully realize that formal loafers exist by the truckload, but somehow wearing a sleek oxford or derby with a suit gives an air of well-grounded authority, which no loafer can match (obvious pun intended).
Wow, I haven't been keeping up on this thread.  I can't believe someone really got upset over a dispute concerning loafers.  Loafers?  Repeat the word three times slowly to yourself.  Pretty ridiculous, eh? In regards to offensive comments, I found a winner from page 15.  The quoted passage is referenced above.  Unless, you've spent a significant period of time in one of America's or ANY urban ghetto, I don't think a "Compton" reference is really appropriate in this situation.  There are 19 pages devoted to a debate on the color of shoes worn with a navy suit.  After spending five minutes on this post, I still can't create a cognizant connection between brown Alden tassel loafers and inner-city Los Angeles. Just adding a bit of perspective and levity to this forum... PS: I have. And when you consider America's poor living in relative luxury compared to the developing world; East LA suddenly looks like paradise next to Darfur.

Koji, send this to Price Rubin and see what they will make out of it. I would pretty much wear all shades of brown (and burgundy) with a navy suit. Lighter shades during the summer, maybe darker tones and suedes during the winter. The hard part is finding matching belt for each shade.

fair enough, we agree to disagree.  I was under the assumption though that many traditional anglo-americans had the habit of wearing tan shoes with grey and blue. I am specifically referencing Alan Flusser's musings about the well dressed men of Madison Ave, who used to worship their Brooks Brothers Peal burnished tan oxfords.  Additionally, a group known as the Boston brahmins (i dont understand where the term comes from) are particularly fond of said tan shoes.  Please educate me if I am wrong, I love that old fashioned east coast preppy look, and any info on it would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
As someone with Brahamin roots, I don't ever remember tan shoes and navy -- a darker brown yes. British tan perhaps -- but even that I think is too light. Tan shoes (the color of khakis) seems positively gauche with navy or charcoal suits. The great Prinsquen seems to have fled the Forum -- but I'll never forget his debate on tassled Alden loafers and suits. I disagreed with him on that one, but am in agreement here with him.
