Hello, everyone. I got divorced around a year ago, and never paid attention to how I looked. I bought whatever cheap jeans i could find...heck i didn't even know there were different types (low rise, mid waist), and t-shirts. Since then i've lost 83 pounds and i've found that i like to dress well (at least by my old standards) Most of the time I wear low rise bootcut jeans. I have levi 527's and a pair from express. Most are dark denim, some have spots that are faded in places. I am usually wearing t-shirts (mostly light green, grey, black...alot of earth tones), but i am slowly building up some button down dress shirts too. I have a dark navy fitted one from express, and one i bought from nordstrom. I also like the brown leather jacket look, although its a winter jacket so it will have to be replaced. My question is this. Shoes. I have the following. Steve Madden captyre -- these are black, and i wear them alot...i like the look, and they seem to go with everything. Steve Madden sticklr http://www.shopstyle.com/product/ste...ssed/231140216 these I can never seem to wear, i don't know if they are too shiny, but they just don't seem right to me. I wanna like them but i don't... and some brown rockport's it says leather upper they are more of a round toe. These are comfortable as hell, I still wear them some. I really like the look of brown, and i talked to a salesman who had on some to boot newyork oxford wingtip shoes that looked cool as hell...those are alittle out of my price range though. I was looking at these http://www.dsw.com/shoe/mercanti+fiorentini+men's+wingtip+oxford?prodId=207892 and i really like the look, i'm just not sure if they will go well with what i currently have (mostly bootcut blue denim) and some light black straight leg jeans from apt 9 and express. I also have a cream colored suit that i just bought from express. Any advice would be appreciated. I've read a ton of forum posts, and it seems like one person says there are certain rules...another says no rules....others say go with what you like...no brown after 6... Alittle confusing for a guy that was shopping at sam's club a few years ago. Thoughts?
