Without wishing to challenge Gerry Nelson as the undisputed shoe king, I thought I'd pop up the list of my shoes. Currently getting quite a few glares from the wife - perhaps I have too many?
A. Testoni wholecuts
Santoni FAM monks
Bally Split toe
Zee oxford captoe (MTM)
Tods penny loafers
C&J Audley dk brown
Loake Hilton semi-brogue medium brown
Loake Chester wingtips tan
Zee wingtips (MTM) dk brown
A. Testoni loafers dk brown
Allen Edmonds Hillcrest tan
Santoni suede brogues dk brown
C&J Kent suede loafers chocolate
Santoni FAM wingtip monks
Edward Green suede wingtips
Alfred Sargent Holt derby
RM Williams chestnut
Loake Kempton tan
Herring Clare brogue boots dk brown
I also have a pair of chestnut C&J Westbournes on order.
Sadly, when I look at the list I just want more. Better black dress shoes, oxblood, cherry, double monks, so many things yet to try ...
CD, you actually have more than I do now so I shall present the title to you over lunch when we next catch up.
That's a lovely collection! Any more than 1 pair of black and 1 pair of brown shoes might be considered too many by some people so I think that ship has long since sailed for the both of us.
Can you post a photo of the EG burgundy suede wingtips? They sound pretty sweet! Out of curiosity, what do you usually wear with the black loafers?
By the way, have you thought about getting any shell cordovan shoes? Oxblood shell cordovan double monks could check off the few remaining boxes to be filled
