I work in the IT department of a real estate company. We're business casual which consists of slacks and a dress shirt but no tie or jacket. I'm 32 but baby-faced so like to dress on the nicer side. Sometimes I meet with other business units as IT is a service to them.
I decided to opt for brown and burgundy shoes and purchased:
I walked in there thinking I'd get maybe one balmoral and one blucher. Specifically, i like the look of broguing, medallions, and wingtips/captoes and liked the MacNeil. I tried it on and thought it was too bulky around the laces. The Delray didn't wow me either.
Then tried on the Strands/McAllisters and they looked so beautiful. Did i overdo it? I plan to buy more shoes this year so can maybe opt for derby's then.
