The "other" black shoes were AE Memphis, basically a cap toe balm on a squishy rubber sole. I may keep them, I've been a pallbearer several times and I'm not sure I want to wear JR soles on snowy grass in winter. But the Memphis is not something I would reach for for fun.Black shell Macs for 3 bills? Fantastic bargain! You win the AEAT thread for this week.
But you CAN'T confine a shoe that nice to Funeral Duty! Never mind business suits, don't you wear navy or gray worsted trousers from time to time? Those Macs will just glow under navy or gray, throw a sweater on top if you don't like sport coats, and walk like a giant. Hell, some guys here would wear those black gun boats with selvedge denim.
Ha you mean this song:Great shoes, congrats.
LWB can be used with suits or in more casual ways. I use my black LWB with jeans and I don't care how my friends or coworkers feel if I am the best shoed man in the party. I don't feel the need to blend. A great Rush song says:
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
I decided / accepted that I am not cool.
For the longest time I owned 2 black PA, 2 brown PA and 2 burg PA to wear at work in rotation. I was happy and felt well dressed.If I wanted to limit myself to seven pairs, this forum thread would be the worst place to be.
