Gentlemen,

 

what is a good shoe to anchor a new wardrobe with?

 

I'd like one that will go with as much as possible.

 

Thank you!!

That's probably your only option.

They've got some wingtip boots that I like VERY much, would those work or are they too "country"?

 I'd probably go with the Strand in Dark Brown, to stick with the previous recommendations. While a wingtip boot is certainly a nice shoe, it won't really serve as an "anchor" in your shoe wardrobe.

They are going to stand out much more. I am not sure what you are dressing for though. I hope that you have other shoes in rotation. You really shouldn't be looking to wear literally one pair of shoes every day. It is horrible for shoes.

Honestly, I would do the 5th ave in dark brown.

I'm a noob here at SF but not completely numb.
My father taught me about how to care for shoes/clothing etc and I've always done pretty well style-wise just not to the exacting standards I've seen since joing this august company.
I've got cordovan loafers and wingtips, and some black Cole-Haan semi-square toed shoes that I hardly wear now that I've seen the vitriol poured upon them here and some Justin Roper and Lucchese cowboy boots, both black.
I like the Strand and the 5th ave, will probably go with the 5th ave as its more conservative.
Thank you both!!

 Definitely the 5th Ave. to add to the current collection. you seem to have the casual end covered for now.

Thank you!

 

I've also found a man here in Portland who does Coppley MTM so that's my next big purchase.

 

I'll be sure to post fit pics so I get what's coming to me!

Likewise I think a captoe is more versatile.

I'd lean towards the 38. The shoulders on the 40 are quite large.

 

However, I simply don't like the look of the shoulders on this coat. The seam is at an odd location, and that throws everything off. It may be helpful to have you actually tuck the shirt in - with the untucked shirt it looks like the buttoning point is a bit high. Tucking in the shirt can give a better reference point (actually seeing where your trousers sit) and people would have an easier time critiquing certain aspects of the fit.
