Yes, we are talking about less than a mile and that much snow. We're also talking about sub 0F temperatures. I don't know why it is that I assumed regular dress shoes can't be used. I suppose I'd expect the shoes not to like it, and me not like the cold. Maybe I'm wrong.

thing is, I'm on a bit of a budget, looking for something in the range of 150-200. Any suggestions are much appreciated. 

Hush puppies should have something. Though I don't know if this brand would be considered worthy by the typical forum standards.

not worthy. they're glued on rubber soles with shit leather

thanks for the opinions everyone! ended up picking them up, at just over $100 it was a little too hard to resist. biggrin.gif

Yeah I don't understand the love for monk straps on this site. I think they're ugly but that's just my opinion.

I'm currently a college student and I'm getting tired of always wearing gym shoes/tennis shoes. I'd really like to get some casual leather shoes (they don't necessarily have to be leather). I live in Florida so I always wear khaki shorts/cargo shorts and a polo. What shoes do you think I should get? By the way, I do not like penny loafers/moccasins so those are out. Thank you, I appreciate your respones.

Maybe give the Leeds a try; they're on a different last.

Seems it was before your time here on SF. The remarks stuck since I came across them after first joining. I said single buckle is described that way, double buckle has much love on SF. Example 1 Example 2 Now you've seen monk straps described that way on SF.

Wow, indeed I have... Personally I loathe monk straps of all varieties, so I'm glad to know I'm not alone.

So I just wore my brand new suit yesterday and must have bumped into something, because I noticed a 3/4 inch tear in the fabric right on the knee which is clearly visible when I am seating. It's a solid charcoal, 100% wool suit.

 

 

Is this fixable? Would my local tailor be able to do it, or are there special services you would recommend, and how much would those cost?

Is there a thread where I can post a question regarding womens clothing? I am looking for a sweater and I have a picture but I don't want to buy it from this designer because 1. expensive and 2. not for me.

In case anyone knows, here it is.

Didn't know you were into that sort of thing, Cal.
