    Would suede wingtips be worth the investment? Are they OK to wear at all ages? Is it a trend that will die out?

    They're shoes, necessary to avoid ripping up the soles of your feet while walking outside. Theyve been generally accepted as a standard in footwear for decades, albeit towards the more casual end of the the formality continuum. As such as I don't believe they will ever 'die out'.

    Suede shoes are classics. I would suggest that you consider a captoe rather than a wingtip however.

    Thanks for your input and I'll have a look. Brilliant loafers(?) in your pic. What do they call that style of monogramming?

    I sent the maker a sample of a typeface and they replicated it.
