Hmm I am considering some Kingsvales (as recommended to me earlier in the thread), but either in brown suede or leather... The versatility of suede is a plus, but I've not had any experience with suede shoes before... plus it will depend on availability... I'm hoping to score a cheap pair at the factory outlet. Thanks for the pic

Hey thanks for replying mate especially with all the detail much appreciated.  Liking the range of Bordeux coloured bags/briefs on one of the sites.  Would be interested to see pics/review of your Obha purchase but looks like that was a tad above what I was looking to spend.  

 

In the end I stumbled upon an Australia site selling the Knomo for a good price and a great return policy so jumped on that.  Have book marked those two middle ground links though, thanks again.

 

very welcome!

I assume everyone here agrees with this sentiment. Sometime I find myself attracted to them, other times I can't get over that plastic feeling.

Johnny Sachs hates patent leather.

This is the one of the pictures that made me first consider wholecuts - though to be honest I prefer my captoes and brogues to my wholecuts. They are a little less versatile and can look a bit long or "empty" if not worn with the right thing. Not really sure if that makes sense and I do wear mine, which are brown, quite regularly. Just have to be more aware of what I match them with.

Yeah wholecuts are so beautiful, I do worry about the creases. But my 'plan' is to get a G&G deco black in a couple of years...

I don't like wholecuts.

I saw Gerry Nelson briefly today. Man, the man can dress. You should've seen him!

Thanks, PS. As I am rebuilding my shoe collection. I plan on getting a pair of simple black shoes. I'm looking at either a whole cut with a medallion or a black captoe. I can't decide yet, I need to see more pictures of outfits incorporating black wholecuts.

Saw him Friday. Very, very well dressed. And his shoes, my god.

I don't like wholecuts for the following reasons:
(1) they break with tradition
(2) lacking a horizontal line, they appear larger and more gaudy
(3) their single leather construction reminds me somewhat of a condom

I think you are over thinking it. The difference between a black captoe and a black whole cut is very minimal.

Nah no way. Huge difference between shoes, even between Captoes themselves, just ask wruger. That sounds sarcastic but it's 100% serious.

Fox, start with a captoe.

 

A wholecut can wait.

No fox, as a part of an entire outfit, there isn't much difference between the black cap toe and black wholecut.

like most things, I highly doubt you going to stop at one pair, so you might as well buy both.

post #39525 of 51881
I don't have a black captoe or wholecut. And have no plans to buy either.

Don't get me wrong, I love black shoes, but captoes and wholecuts are too austere for my tastes. And anyone in Australian business who will begrudge you wearing black brogues instead... Well, no such person of consequence exists.
