I have two black blucher gunboats, in cordovan and pebble grain. In my mind the cordovan is shinier and goes well with suits; conversely the pebble grain is better with sport coats. What are your thoughts?
Also, if you don't like gunboats, don't bother saying so. You're obviously retarded.
I love gunboats and wear them with suits, although mine are simple calf, and that's how I like them. My understanding is there is a school of thought that says no gunboats with suits, but...
And your last sentence kind of might draw the wrong type of discussion, not sure what was your intention. I think of it as a joke :-)
