Black Balmoral Captoe
Chili Longwing Brogues in Svotchgrain with double sole
Snuff suede Chukkas
3 pairs of those, 1 would just not be enough
Professor Snape wants his shoes back ^^
brown full brogue
Brown Suede Chukka
Brown Suede Semi Brogue
Chestnut Antique Calf Semi Brogue
Black captoe oxford
Brown EG Dover
Brown chelsea boot
Taken from my own collection, I think these would suffice:
1. Black cap toe oxfords
2. Brown/cognac/burgundy (whatever shade) derby brogues
3. Brown/cognac/burgundy (whatever shade) single monks. These could however easily be exchanged for a number of different shoes, like chukkas, plain toe derbys, various boots of different kinds.
A light brown cap-toe brogue (currently filled by the Grenson Radley in tan)
A darker brown wing-tip (currently filled by the Grenson Headingly in cognac)
A black cap-toe (currently filled by the C&J Bedford)
But then...I need a mid-brown suede cap-toe as well, and/or a penny loafer, for wearing with jeans...so sticking to only 3 is difficult...
Brown saddle shoe
Brown single monks
Those are absolutely gorgeous.
x2. I already have much more than three pairs of shoes, so there's no reasonable situation where I would ever have to choose just three.
Perhaps OP should have asked "What are the first three shoes one should buy?"
I like neither oxfords nor brogueing.
I don't particularly like captoes.
So, three pairs of the identical 3 eyelet derby in:
Brown or cognac calf or pebble grain
Next, I would move on to single monks, loafers, and chukkas.
Double monks, never.
how old are you guys?
