    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You should also disclose that you live in Florida, the sartorial wasteland. Formality and conservative attire is frowned upon here.

    No one would notice or care if you never wore black shoes...

    Absolutely, what you wear is dependent on the location and environment. I actually don't have a single black suit or tux, just various shades of navy, charcoal and grey. For my current shoe collection, I have even split of black and brown, 6 each. I do find brown more interesting due to the different patina and shades, but to be on the formal and safe side I mostly wear black due to client meetings.

    A pair of well polished high shine black shoes is noticed by many, sophisticated but not too flashy. IMO, black brings out mirror shine the best, I also find my black shoes are higher mantainence than browns, as they show dust and stain spots easily, more elbow grease required every week :satisfied:

    You, sir, are correct. I think I've gotten so accustomed to being here that I've forgotten: it's not me that's rakishly different ("Look ma, no black shoes!") but rather that this Godforsaken peninsula doesn't require or even appreciate a good suit that would necessitate some fine black shods. Heck, I've lost sight of the fact that the reason I'm odd-jacket'ing instead of suits is because even my odd-jacket wardrobe is considered "overdressed".

    Never having been to Sydney, I'll presume that wuger's need for black shoes is more in line with custom there and, in the future, adjust my comments for "when in Rome"

    heelguy, that's really fast delivery! I'm very impressed by the speed.

    Boohoo... was waiting for pay day before pulling the trigger on Moore and now they're all sold out! Anyone know how often AFPOS hold their sales?

    Hi Yowzer - we can always take your order and ship when they come back into stock, possible 12-16 weeks. We usually have two sales a year, January and June. Happy to help.
