My best man is intent on getting a pair of square toe dress shoes to wear for my wedding. Â And, by square toe I don't mean like the Ed Green 89 last, but rather a "true" square toe that draws the ire of so many on this board. Â He is wearing a black Corneliani linea sartoria suit that I found for him, so he's got a real good shot to look very dapper here. Â Granted, the guy can't afford a super expensive pair of shoes, but with the deals out there right now, I have found some stuff that would look great IMO and still have a bit of "style" without looking god awful "trendy." Â For example, these Brooks Brother shoes (the shoes are the "leather oxford" on the far right second row that are currently $134) that with my 15% discount coupon would come to about $125 after shipping. Â When he saw these on the web (I showed them to him) he said, I want something that is more squared off. Â Aren't these squared off already, dude? Â So, my question is, should I try to suggest that a really squared toe is going to look stupid with a SUIT -- he's never really worn a suit before so it may just be that he thinks what looks good with his jeans will look good with a suit -- or should I just let it go? Â He's mentioned that he needs a good pair of dress shoes anyways, so it's not like the BB shoes would be something he doesn't need anyways.
