    I've lost about 15 pounds in the couple of months that I've been following this forum and am right around my goal of 185 pounds (I'm 6'2"). I find that buying very nice clothes has a way of locking in weight loss -- if I were to outgrow my new RLPL suit, I think I'd cry.

    When you lose weight, your shoe size will probably change a bit as well. Another reason to stick with the shoes you have, or limit your expenditure.
    +1. I lost 30 lbs last year and my feet became much smaller -- I replaced all of my shoes.

    AE Byron in Chili; my first quality shoe and what led me to SF. Still my favorite, by far. The chili color really develops a nice patina. You should be able to pick up the AE Dryden in Mocha (dark brown).

    Funny replies!

    I've lost 80 lbs. Feet are the same. 11D. LOL

    To the shoes:

    Five is plenty. 2 Black, 1 tan, 1 dark brown, 1 burgundy, 4 (3) Oxfords, 1 (2) Monks. You don't need any loafers ;-)

    But stay here a while, and you'll get the bug. A year ago, I figured 3 in rotation was fine -- they were pretty good quality and correct style for occasions.

    Now, they've been dumped. I went a bit nutz.

    In the last year, I've snagged 2 Testoni, 1 JM Weston, 1 Santoni, 1 Loding, 1 Canali, 1 Boss, 1 AE. Not a loafer among them. I feel I'm now covered for colour and style. Except for the Santoni (Harrods sale), I got them all retail. Not a good idea, but I drank the Kool Aid.

    The more shoes you have the least likely your insoles will smell though, am i right? If you wear a shoe every other day, opposed to wearing it once and then resting it for 2 or 3 days is definately better isnt it?
