Your shoe budget is a quite high for a new member asking for recommendations for shoes. Do you have many other nice/expensive pairs of shoes? You may want to start cheaper to get a better feel for what you like before sinking $1200 into a pair of shoes.

 

As for the shoes themselves, the main issue I see with those shoes is that they are borderline formal wear, and really don't belong with jeans. Also, for a casual shoe, I would avoid black. Also, casual shoes are often going to have double-leather soles and not be quite so sleek.

NO, NO and NO!

A) Louboutins are a women's fashion brand. The quality:price ratio is awful compared to other more traditional options.
B) the patent leather, or patent leather elements, is just awful. Maybe if you're trying to be really loud in a club, but that's about it.
C) aside from the (awful) patent leather element, there's really nothing special about the designs there which is all your money would be going towards.

Conclusion: seek something else.

You have great shoe threads here to start learning. But I would go after quality and fine handwork then ''brand'' This all depends on your taste and you seem to like all the big ''fashion'' brands more. 

 

If I write for myself I would start low as Crockett & Jones or something to learn and appreciate shoes. But if you wanna go straight up and pay those prices why not Gaziano & Girling, then you have a shoe for the rest of your life instead of those crappy brand names with no quality at all.

Does anyone still uses mothballs? I have never seen or noticed moth eaten clothes until yesterday while cleaning out a closet . Tiny little holes on a some wool pants I never wore (I had two of the same, hardly wore one of them, so no need for other ever).

Now I am freaking out worried some of my jackets and suits that get little use will be eaten. I cleaned out all my closets and drawers and will now look for some preventive measures.

^Cedar chips. The oil in them that gives them the scent drives off moths, and doesn't smell awful like mothballs.

(Posted this in Carmina x Epaulet, reposting here) What are the benefits of Dainite soles? Why not just always opt for leather soles? Also, am I mistaken in having believed that there was a sort of taboo around rubber soles when it came to higher tiers of men's shoes?

 

Finally, do Dainite soles have a hard heel that "clicks" similar to the hard rubber heel portion of leather soles?

I don't fully understand the question, but assuming one is expected to reply in a similar fashion, I'll go with:

Leather bombing jaket, platinum, lamp, upon!

i doubt he is looking for something like this.

btw your math about duration is based on a full refurb with stitched soles. there are other possibilities out there.

Very good advice.
