Nothing that important, just semi work (or potential work) related social night. To be honest, my current shoes will do it I guess. Just worrying too much. No point rushing a purchase.

On another note picked up Henry carter tie from the post office. Ordered on Wednesday night and got it on Friday. Tie is great, service too! Thanks mate, will be back!

Fair enough then. This is where I hope Target Australia bring in those captoes from the US. They would be perfect at $30 for your situation.

 

I will be checking out Henry Carter at some stage, I would like to grab that Macclesfield #17.

They look like a pair of badly worn golf shoes to me.

I appreciate the fact that they might be bringing back some of their older styles (although I do wonder how popular they were back in the day, so to speak), but the style doesn't do it for me and the soles are absolutely hideous.

You should at least have two shoes in your wardrobe:
- a black cap oxford
- a brown brogue

Those shoes can take you from black tie to a lunch date. If you're lacking either of those that would be the first place I'd put my money. With Herring's discounts and our steady dollar they're not that outrageous.

Fair enough. I'm not suggesting they should be part of anyone's rotation. They disappeared off the scene a long time ago and probably for a good reason!

I had some pics of the original articles which I will try and dig out.

Great choice! Just be aware that the Macclesfield ties are in limited quantities so once they're gone, they're gone.

I think this is a sensible suggestion - that pretty much covers you off for work and more formal occasions.

I know you guys are obviously right re shoes. At the moment I have one pair tan derbies, one pair black and lots of loafers (plus trainers, drivers etc). I just love loafers and can't bring myself to spend cash on more sensible shoes. Having said that I'd like a pair of decent dark brown/chocolate semi brogues.

I'm a student and my job doesn't require overly formal clothing, neither will my future career for at least a few years. I'll hold out for a while (or as long as I can) on the black captoe.

I order for Gerry to have a wife with a larger collection he would need to marry Imelda Marcos (though he would take better care of them) - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2207353/Imelda-Marcos-legendary-3-000-plus-shoe-collection-destroyed-termites-floods-neglect.html

Only joking Gerry, like me and Romp and others here, you only have the shoes you 'need'.

Oh yes and my shoe collection is definitely larger (and a lot more expensive) than my wife's....

Those are some good looking lapels.  What suit/tie/shoes though, details?  I know pictures speak a 1000 words but... :p
