After all the recent posts on spectators I am interested in purchasing a pair. My question is what do I wear them with ? I wear a suit or sports jacket every day, and my workplace is not conservative. Is there anway to wear them to work without looking like I am peddling flesh on the dark side of town ? Apart from old time hollywood actors and Raj from the apprentice I rarely see anyone wearing them.
Gotta disagree with Carlo here. I wore a pair with a beige, almost cream Armani suit to work. Was I out of place? Probably, but I really didn't care. A co-worker in his uniform, i.e. Dockers, oxford button down RL Polo shirt, rep tie and rubber soled black shoes, made a wise-guy comment. I just smiled and said that spectator shoes reveal a man of taste. The fashion editor, who was walking by at that moment, went ga ga over my shoes, hence proving my point on the spot. Interestingly, at the time I lived in an apartment next door to the Palm Beach Polo Club.
