    Dark Chili Warwicks today. A bit roughed up, but that works fine for casual. Though they were snug at first they are great now. I sized down 1 whole size from brannock, I am a 10.5 B-C and these are 9.5 D.

    No shoes, but working on my no sock tan line in Vegas.

    I'll be flying over top of you in about an hour on my way to Reno. Heading to Tahoe for the weekend. No AEs today, rocking my Frye Walter lace ups, which are Indy knock offs. Made in USA though.

    Thank god for precheck or I would never wear these through an airport.

    BTW, have you thought about getting some AE golf shoes?

    Those a much more casual looking than I expected, and lighter. They look like a monk strap version of my Freiburgs. This makes me want a pair despite the 201 last being an odd fit for me (I have to go long to get the width I need, and it makes my feet feel huge).

    I have yes. Don't know if I'm ready to make that plunge. I golf a ton and I'd need 5 pairs at least. *casually clicks on golf shoes*

    Sitting right by a window, the lighting may be a tad misleading. I did not do a color correction to more closely match the actual shade.

    As for the fit, it can be a pain. Brooks styles don't seem to come in widths. Maybe the oxbloods could be tamed to look more casual by stripping the welt color and adding polish to negate the strong redness. Just a thought, as I have no experience with oxblood.

    I love the shoe / sock / pant combo. I have a question regarding that....

    How close do you match your socks with other accessories such as ties or pocket squares. Is it important to have the same colors, colors that compliment, or is it anything goes? I mostly wear sport coat, dress slacks, and tie to work. Occasionally I wear a suit, depending on my meetings that day.

    By the way... Quit showing pics of shells. I'm falling in love.

    As far as socks, I just go with what I like. No real matching - I don't usually wear a tie or pocket square. I usually wear slacks and a sport coat with no tie. Today I am wearing a blue check shirt and blue/grey faint patterned sport coat. I really like these sock with tan slacks so they got the pick this morning.

    When I wear suits, I don't go with loud socks. I keep it more subtle - maybe a pattern, but nothing that stands out.

    Yet another entry into the keep or send back game:

    Leeds, stitching outside of the channel.I can feel it when running my fingers over it. Just a problem in the one spot...any chance this will affect longevity? Other than that it is a very nice, plain, black shoe.

    Edit: Another angle.

    How do I add one of those "eye roll" emojis?

    A thank you to whoever finally bought those bourbon strands and Mcallisters in my size that have been sitting on clearance forever. My conviction of not buying another pair right now was wearing thin :)
