For a shoe in my weekly work rotation (to be rotated with a black Oxford) am I better off going with the Loake or saving for the C&J in terms of comfort?

 

I'm not sure why the Finsbury would have soles that were any softer or harder than the Buckinghams. If comfort is your concern, then the last shape would come into play and that depends on the shape of your feet.

I know I'm kind of breaking the omertà here, but none of my dress shoes are particularly comfortable. Some are better than others, and it's my wonky right foot that is partly to blame, but what I'm trying to say is: I'm not convinced comfort is a hugely relevant consideration (beyond not causing you actual pain). These are not shoes to walk long distances in...

Thanks for the tips (again), ill stay with the loakes smile.gif

Nolva: nice, but I think the socks are too bold for black oxfords.

I would agree I like the tie and general look but yeah the socks seem all on there own from another planet.

Its a good example though of why navy socks are the best choice for about 90% of business situations. If you want some colour then burgundy maybe with dark brown shoed.

I should fess up and say that I often rock the 'wine' Pantherella's that I picked up from HC with an otherwise full-on conservative getup... shog[1].gif

Well they can work in the other 10% of times but they still need to be coherent with the rest of the fit. Unfortunateky bright blue isnt with navy and burgundy. They might work with a more casual beige/khaki suit and tan shoes for example.

What about a nice pair of pink socks?

GF - I just use a no glare screen protector to keep it lean.

There's a good charging case which doubles as a battery if you've got the 5...

I thought the English liked to flash a red sock every now and then?

^ Did you just call a Scotsman English?
I don't think they like that very much!

Your first post in over two months and it had to be a snark....typical New Zealander...

Yes, the English do like their red socks - Sir Christopher Meyer, former ambassador to Washington only a few years ago being an example. I remember a sleuth of articles on the topic of socks (my kind of journalism) - http://elleeseymour.com/2006/11/29/why-do-men-wear-red-socks/?doing_wp_cron=1365400514.1818048954010009765625

We Scots are a little more daring so pink works for us, is it because we are hungover more often? - http://linenforsummertweedforwinter.tumblr.com/post/11373348967/wear-a-pink-shirt-on-days-youre-hung-over-or-just

Do not worry he is just being a troublemaker. Where are the site moderators when they are needed...
