    That's probably your only option.

    They've got some wingtip boots that I like VERY much, would those work or are they too "country"?

    I'd probably go with the Strand in Dark Brown, to stick with the previous recommendations. While a wingtip boot is certainly a nice shoe, it won't really serve as an "anchor" in your shoe wardrobe.

    They are going to stand out much more. I am not sure what you are dressing for though. I hope that you have other shoes in rotation. You really shouldn't be looking to wear literally one pair of shoes every day. It is horrible for shoes.

    Thank you!

    I've also found a man here in Portland who does Coppley MTM so that's my next big purchase.

    I'll be sure to post fit pics so I get what's coming to me!

    Likewise I think a captoe is more versatile.

    I'd lean towards the 38. The shoulders on the 40 are quite large.

    However, I simply don't like the look of the shoulders on this coat. The seam is at an odd location, and that throws everything off. It may be helpful to have you actually tuck the shirt in - with the untucked shirt it looks like the buttoning point is a bit high. Tucking in the shirt can give a better reference point (actually seeing where your trousers sit) and people would have an easier time critiquing certain aspects of the fit.

    Hey guys, got a question for ya.

    Summer's coming up, and I need a new pair of shoes that pretty much goes to match into alot of outfits.
    I'll mostly be wearing chinos shorts with a shirt, or a t-shirt/polo. Might even use jeans but not as much.
    Currently I have a pair of these http://img.tradera.com/images/041/142193041_1.jpg sorta, and would like to have something more summery/cooly.

    All help appreciated
