    I have read reviews on constructions and quality, but I am looking for practicality. Before I order them with ctshirts.com/spots discount a few questions; would these be acceptable with pants and odd jackets? Are they acceptable with tan, charcoal, and blue pants? And finally, will these work with either a suit or with my usual business casual attire?

    Does anyone know the new code for 50% off at CT? It seems that ctshirts.com/spots no longer works.

    They are fine IMHO. YMMV of course - would depend on the sort of business environment you are in but they are not flashy shoes.

    I was worried they would be a tad flashy, but I think they are a good value for everyday office wear and would suit my purposes well.

    Thanks Jovan!

    They look different from the posted sales pictures - pretty much monotone but you can create some subtle antiquing on them.

    Funny you mention that because I was thinking the same thing. When I tried them on for sizing in the store, they had a slight antiquing that looked very nice. Hopefully the pair I recieve will have the antiquing.

    The colour changes at a decent rate actually; I used a little bit of cordovan polish as well as the darker brown polish Pediwear sent me on the medallion, made them a wee bit more interesting.
