Hello everyone, I have been reading this board from the beginning, but had forgotten my password, so I haven't ever regularly posted. Â I have a quick question about how and when to wear my new "Park Avenue" black cap-toe laceups. Â I'm still in highschool, senior year, and just purchased my first suit this year (three button navy blue Burberry with very light/thin lines). Â Originally, I had been wearing an old pair of my father's J&M wingtips with the suit, but decided with the university approaching next fall I ought to go ahead and buy my first pair of formal lace-ups. Â Anyway, I ordered this pair of Allen Edmunds from the local tailor where I bought my suit (and purchase my shirts, ties, casual Lacoste, et cetera). Â So, essentially, my question is when can/should/must one wear lace-ups? Â Should I always wear these if I am wearing my suit? Â Should I ever wear them with anything less than a suit? Â What sort of shoes should I wear with say a blazer and chinos or something in the dress-casual area? Â Â Any general advice about shoes with suits, or lace-ups in general, would be very appreciated as I am yet unfamiliar with some of the finer points of dressing as an adult, and when I asked at the J&M store at Frontenac (in St.Louis M.O.) they told me "Oh, at your age, you can wear any of these shoes with a suit....". Happy New Year, Adam p.s. Anyone here attend Tulane? Â I am going to school there in the fall and would love to hear some insight about the school, particularily as I already trust the opinions of many of this board's members.
