    Can someone pin point this brand/model? I want this look so bad! Or suggest something similar would be fine too!

    Strands are great. Excellent way to up your style is to up your shoe game. Now maybe swap the polo for an OCBD.

    Thanks! They are a beautiful shoe. I like where you're going with the OCBD. Indeed, maybe that is where I need to be headed. I feel like they're a bit too dressy for my line of work where people can and do wear t shirts, but maybe I need to put that aside and go with what feels right for me.

    Much appreciated

    Hey guys, I just want your opinions on one thing. How bad are those shoulder divots? Bad enough that you wouldn't want to wear the suit until you get them fixed or they are not too bad?

    The tshirt wearers won't even notice. But the people you want to notice will. ;)

    Wow. That is an interesting point.

    You sold me. I'll try out the OCBD and see what the reactions are. Don't want to be seen as putting on airs by the co-workers, but I won't be wearing a Van Halen t-shirt either. It's a fine line.

    so the Sail Rigger arrived today. i love everything about it EXCEPT the length. i am afraid it will come untucked in no time at all.

    what other OCBD's can i check out that might have a longer tail?

    thanks!

    Dude, you're in your 40s. Having buttons on your shirt is a bare minimum.

    I'd say they are saddle shoes, but not sure which brand or model.

    I did a quick google search and saddle shoes look much clunkier. If anyone can please find this pair or a similar one I would greatly appreciate it b

    I would agree they are saddle shoes. They just happen to be tone-on-tone and made a little more streamlined than most.

    You need to find one with a single leather or rubber sole.

    Plain toe blucher. A penny might be too casual for some situations.
