    Can you wear faded jeans with dress shoes?

    I just bought a nice pair of brown wing tipped oxfords and I want to wear them with jeans. Is it ok to wear them with faded jeans or is it only ok to wear them with solid color jeans?

    Looking for a smooth leather black dress shoe with a light brown natural sole

    I saw someone wearing a pair and they looked really good. Does anyone know where to find something like that in NYC? Thanks.

    Help with first pair of nice shoes!

    So I'm going to get my first authentically relatively nice pair of shoes for Christmas. The conundrum is that I am unsure whether to put my entire budget towards one really nice pair, or two good pairs. The two good pairs would be one black, one brown or burgundy. I have a budget of about...

    One shoe is lighter than the other - deglaze and dye?

    So I thought I found a good deal on Santoni goodyears with double soles at $180. The shoes come in and one looks a little lighter than the other. I search on styleforum and evidently this happens often with display shoes. So I walk on over to B. Nelson to ask him. I never remember the...

    Less Expensive Brown Dress Shoes

    I am looking to buy some cheaper less expensive brown dress shoes. The purpose is weekly church attendance, and then the very occasional other dress up event that might occur, if that helps. Usually will just be worn with grey or navy slacks, maybe once per month with a navy suit. I am...

    Double Monk Straps

    I'm looking for a pair of double monk straps for a reasonable price. I'm in Toronto, Canada and so far have only found a fair of brogue cap toe monks at Johnston & Murphy for $460. In short, I'm not a big fan of them but can't find many other double monks in the city... I'm willing to order...

    Allen Edmonds - Starter pairs for business wear (suits)

    I wear a suit 2-3 days out of the week and trousers/dress shirt the rest of the week. I'm moving up from the cheap shoes I wore in the past. I've decided on Allen Edmonds and would like to get 2 pairs to start, but would be open to 3 if I absolutely have to. First off, most of my suits are...

    Attire for second interview

    I am 33 years old. I interviewed a while ago for a mid-senior level position at a contract research company. To set the stage, I will say that most people in my line of work dress rather casually (denim or khakis, sport shirts), including those at this company (for instance the hiring manager...

    Can This be Fixed? (Lighter vs Darker Shoe)

    Got these shipped to me, and clearly one has been exposed for quite some time to lighting as a floor model. Any suggestions? I plan on trying to lighten the other shoe w/ natural sunlight, but maybe there's a better way, as in darkening the floor model safely? FYI the original color is Chestnut

    The art of matching colors and shades

    1) What is your attitude towards matching shades and tricky colors be it tan, cognac, coffee, burgundy, oxblood or anything of that sort. 2) How do you manage to find the same shades for different items of your apparel? 3) How do you decide if the shades match perfectly well? 4) The last...

    A Guide: Shoes for Flatter Feet, Narrow Heels, etc.

    So - my love for finer shoes started with Alden and many of us who have flatter feet, lower arches, narrower heels tend to find it difficult to shop for these gorgeous shoes. Through much trial and error I have narrowed down my sizes and provided my thoughts on various lasts below. I have...

    Washed/distressed brogues with suit?

    I was curious if a well made leather pair of brogues that are washed/faded will work with a suit, or if it is like mixing oil and water. These were the shoes in question...

    Thoughts on these Balmoral's for my first dress shoes? Feedback appreciated

    Hello SF, I'm a 28 year old who is just now starting his adult wardrobe. Previously I had no idea how to dress, and shopping involved a lot of frustrated buying of childish clothing that I didn't wear and ultimately just wasted money on. I've read a lot of these forums and other style blogs...

    What is the actual color of these Allen Edmonds Bel Air?

    I just bought these off of ebay. The auction listed the color as Burgundy, but the picture looks more like AE's dark brown. However, I don't know that AE made this shoe in either of these colors. Can anybody provide some clarification? Thanks.

    Shoe diagnosis needed

    Despite the consensus here against Johnston & Murphy shoes, I've owned and loved this pair for many years. Here's what they looked like about six months ago: And here's what they look like now: Age and low-quality leather may be the culprit, of course, but it seems odd that they died so...
