    was talking about the definition - not the preferences of an individual.

    I would think it is considered a shoe to wear with odd jacket and trousers or casual trousers rather than with a suit. I agree with the implicit thought in your question that the stiching making up the toe cap looks casual. ( I am assuming you are asking about the Uppingham rather that the shoe in Racing Green?)

    I have the Uppingham 2 in Racing Green ordered for delivery in July. I have thought and rethought this many times since paying my deposit. I hope it turns out well but I have no idea what to wear with it [​IMG]

    A double Dainite sole is usual but can be requested as single Dainite. Personally I like it because it still keeps the shoes looking sleek.
