That u-cap is a great looking shoe. You could wear the u cap with sport coat and trousers. I would think it might look odd with more casual pants like corduroy. But wool or linen pants, even dressy cotton ones, with a coat or coat-like sweater would look fantastic. Personally, I wish there was a different color leather planned fr the U-cap. My dress clothes are greys, blues and blacks. I don't use a lot of olives or browns in these clothes, making brown dress shoes difficult to use. I do have one pair of tan trousers so maybe I do have a serious unmet need for this MTO. Couldn't that U-cap be offered in an oxblood calf or cordovan? Or . . . . .. grey leather?
