I can relate to that. So........I have, all shell:
Black wingtip balmoral
Black cap toe
#8 cap toe
Black on black saddle, which is my casual, with sport coat, or evening casual shoe.
What should I look for next?
I wear a suit almost every day, sport coat once every week or two. I also have:
AE black wingtip, non perforated balmoral
AE black perforated cap toe blucher
AE burgundy perforated cap toe blucher
J&M black cap toe balmoral
J&M brown cap toe balmoral
J&M burgundy wingtip balmoral
As you may see, I have moved from Johnston & Murphy, to Allen Edmands, to Alden. My next Alden should be what? I'd like it to be shell cordovan, would like a tan or walnut, probably a balmoral as I have learned that bluchers are not OK with a suit. Any ideas?
