^ You being an accountant, subjected to reviews and sox audits etc, this might just be your calling.

@Murls
Have it delivered to a friend, a gas station, a Starbucks, any other option?

Spray on some Nano and you can wear in snow.  I have a pair of suede Jodhpur boots that I will wear in the snow with some Nano protection.

....I HATE loafers! I know, I'm the minority here.

 

yeah, I am on the otherside of the spectrum.  Generally, I hate the look of lace-up shoes with anything but suits.

I think suede plain toe blucher, suede or pebbled chukkas, or loafers would be great. I still have a soft spot for the right kind of single monk.

 

I have the string loafers pictured below.  I actually may be selling them as my wife vetoed the color.  I may get them in green or blue.  Already have too much snuff.

I would go with the Meermin, or Carmina if you want to upgrade.

What size are yours? The guy from Eidos always seems to be wearing Belgian shoes, and they do look very good, but I like the string loafers just as much.

Those are 9UK

 

Antonio does usually look very good...I don't think his outfits/combos are easy for most to pull off.  Not saying you can't, just that most people can't.

Thank you. Too bad, that's a bit too small for me, otherwise I would've been interested.

Yeah, he has a great style. I don't really get the 'pulling off' though. As long as you're confident, have developed your own style and are dressed somewhat appropriately, you'll be more than fine.

There is a savoir vivre messiness about him that makes it all look congruent.

These Vass might work with jeans in that they are less sleek, double soled. Anyway, FYI they are marked down to sub $600 which I take it is quite good for Vass (too rich for me). Lots of sizes left. Go get em!

I agree with your statement in general. IMHO belgians look pretentious and it takes a style like Antonio's to counter balance them.

Finally got the C & J Hallam (Dark Brown) today. I think I am ok in the shoes department for now.

Sure, on black shoes!

My Carmina suede string loafers are by far the favorite summer shoe I've ever owned.

PS do whatever you like, it comes off anyway.

In the first instance I'd do all things accurately, in terms of colour, before doing anything else.

I only have black wax. I do see that they come off and not make brown shoes black.
