Nice shirts but I really like this one in particular - the "hand drawn/painted lines", where the lines/colors wave in and out, are really a neat little touch that I've never seen before.

   kind of a purple lilac if that makes any sense   it doesn't want to fit in either distinct category which is pretty

   much what i liked about it.

Ok, I'm going to get beat up on this, but I'm going to post it anyway...

I'm still on the fence and can't decide on a nice, summer-esque, casual but almost dressy wingtip-type shoe. So, I decided to fill the gap with a crappy one that I like the look of: (cue the boos from the crowd) a Kenneth Cole wingtip, direct from every-craptastic-thing-made-in-China DSW:



I should note that a local DSW had 2 pair in my size, but one had smudging on the canvas and the other had a real bad, sloppy streak just under the toe from when they were being burnished - their quality control just sucks, so I ended up orderring a pair.

I'm planning on wearing it as a kind of a test-drive-experiment - "Do I really like the look of a wingtip casual shoe enough to where I'll really wear it?" If I end up loving it and getting a lot of use out of it, then I'll continue the hunt for a nicer version - maybe like this Carmina that I keep fence-sitting over:

About the purchase specifically .. know what? I think you're right, good call. But, by way of the purchase, I am interested in any subsequent chatter that helps me steer in a better direction. This isn't the right place for it, but I was fishing for it anyway....

Not all new purchases have to be the ultimate, some can just be exploratory steps in a better direction, no?
