Silly assertion. It is based on the premise that one wouldn't wear black unless one HAD TO, in which case one would presumably HAVE TO go with THE MOST formal style.

+1.  If you like the look and can pull it off, I say wear it.

Sazon - did these lighten up over time or were they a very light shade of Cigar when you got them?

For the most part, these were a pretty light Cigar when I got them. The boots are 18 months old, but haven't seen the sunlight all that much.

Caught a dart in the shoe last night during bar darts.  Popped a pin hole in a shell boot.  Tried to fill it with polish overnight but didn't really work.  

 

Leave it or any suggestions for fixing it?

My friends, thank you very much! They are a beautiful shoe. They were done by LeatherSoul in 2011. I am a huge Balmoral fan. :-)

All good, not sure if it went all the way through.  Didn't hit me either way luckily.  But of course leave it up to me to be wearing way too nice of shoes for darts lol

I guess you are lucky you were wearing shell. If you were wearing sneakers youd be asking how to fix the hole in your foot!!! Sorry about your shoes. I, unfortunately, don't have any advice for you.

Yes, this is essentially the argument that is made.
