    OP, invest in good shoes. Shell cordovan is more expensive but can take abuse from the elements better. Monkstraps are a more formal alternative than loafers and can be worn with suits, but also have the advantage of slipping on and off quite easily.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! I'll go try on some shoes at Nordstrom tomorrow (as well as some other stores at the mall). Not sure if i'm ready to shell out $600 for some cordovans though - I may decide to get some "entry-level" shoes ($350ish) as my first foray into the quality dress shoe market.

    It's just a book (by Joseph Roth, about the decline of the Austro-Hungarian empire), which either you've read or you haven't. It's excellent though, I'd really recommend it.
