Bestetti Novecento oxfords

I have just rolled the dice and ordered some Cheaney Harringtons 10 F in the sale online (ends tomorrow night). I tried some Loake Cadogans on but the shop didn't have the Aldwych (same last) and assistant not very knowledgeable re how much give to expect. Given the discount on the Harrington the £5 return post seems a fairly low risk to take. How did you get on @popdop?

I am currently looking at either the JLP or EG oxfords, and cannot decide between the two, so any help appreciated.

 

Based on this thread I was initially looking at the EG on an 82 last, but since trying it on it just seemed too slim looking on a UK10 and I actually preferred the 202 last in the flesh.

 

What's the general view on EG 72 v EG 202 v JLP?


Also, I am swaying between leather sole and Dainite, as I would get rubber put on as follows with metal tip, so would it be worth just getting Dainite as it always rains where I live, so seems more practical?

Devilish question here - how about dark/navy blue Oxfords, which Looks almost black - would you use them for the same formal Settings as your black Oxfords?

 

Like this as an example:

If it looks like black, to the point that only you and your shoe shine man know it's really blue, then yes.  If it's obviously blue, then no.

Another question is - Medaillon. Think  the C&J Edgeware.

 

Some Blogs mention that the Medaillon disqualifies the shoe for black tie. In other words, the Medaillon reduces the shoes formality.

 

How you think? Would you wear a black pair of Edgewares to the same occasions as your plain black cap toe Oxfords?

No. Shoes with medallions are not formal enough

That's true: brogued or medallioned shoes have not been part of black tie decorum. Please note that black or white tie events are formal, set apart from the everyday by apparel as much as everything else.

@wurger, do you have any recent pics of your Armfields on your feet?
