This is my first post after reading the site voraciously the last several weeks. I'm delighted to have found the forum and have learned a lot. I've used search and find conflicting answers to this question:
When is it acceptable to wear a blucher shoe with a suit?
I am a fat man with a EEE wide, high-volume foot. I wear an AE Leeds in 9.5EEE. Until reading SF, it never occurred to me that this might not be an acceptable shoe to wear with a suit, even a very conservative solid navy or charcoal.
Is the "correctness" of a balmoral meant for tuxedo or dinner suit only, or business suit as well?
I wear calfskin Leeds in black, shell cordovan in burgundy, and just special ordered a pair of dark brown in shell cordovan. I'm not buying any more calfskin shoes after having worn these shell Leeds in burgundy, except for casual shoes. I'm a shell cordovan man now, spoiled for life.
I hope you all will set my mind at ease that this shoe that I love, and perfectly fits my stupidly shaped feet, is acceptable for CBD.
