On a more related note, I have started getting the wheels rolling for the brown suede rain GMTO. Check in here if you're interested.

Yes they do make good clogs to wear in he medical field with scrubs or the culinary field. I have a lot of colleagues who wear them exclusively in the hospital. My father has them too and I have tried his on and see where the comfort factor for ling hours comes in but can only see them used for those jobs. They just are not nice looking shoes and even worse when talking with people on SF. And don't forget this is coming from the foot/ankle specialists. I have days where I'm in the OR for like 12 hours and still will just wear my sneakers. I just can't do it. Haha

Yes that is a great idea and would be be nice to make some form of yearly event like a Pitti Uomo but only for SF members.

Skoak could even do their own kind of event like that so many of the members who make such great MTOs could meet in person and meet the guys behind the scenes.

I am planning on picking clogs up tomorrow from a mall but they are not that attractive & I still love my Nike 5.0 that I picked up just to were in OR for long day hall. And rock my other shoes in my office in regular basis.

For DOAK you get a range of recommendations from neutral, to medium brom, and even dark brown with black for the toe. it kind of depends on the shade you want to have your shoes take. I would recommend medium brown.

Leaves, is the colour on these true to the picture? I have a pair of St. C loafers in their Russian calf, but they're a much lighter shade of brown... These look almost burgundy. Thanks.

Make sure your Danskos are a bit looser than you would get dress shoes. They are designed to have some heel slip as you walk and force your toes to grip onto the forefoot as you step, as your foot would when you normally walk.

On my screen and phone they do not look burgundy. They look very much brown with some reddish undertones. StC only has one kind of Russian Calf but of course colour may vary between batches.

A good idea. I was hoping to participate or organise some kind of event in the U.S. and/or Hong Kong and Singapore at some point.
