seldom wear suits only formal slacks + shirts.
A tan derby is a very versatile shoe. I couldn't live without black captoes, but then I wear a suit most days (and they don't really work with much else)... You can probably get away with black longwings for most job interviews - if you're going for an interview where you think you'll need them then get captoes, but for general wear I'd go the derbies. Something like Tricker's Bourton/Keswick is chunky enough for casual use but smart enough with slacks for most occasions.
