    Shit man, you guys are killin' me with these judgment calls. That's less chestnut than I expected, but still not a "staple" brown. In.

    dont worry, my actual entrance fit will qualify without question. :D

    btw, will be using your fit from earlier in the week with the brown jacket and seafoam pents?

    So just to be clear those cap toes are ok or am I missing something/you're talking to someone else?

    You wish. I intend on throwing down, not rolling over.

    They aren't brown, so it's ok. Only out if they are brown AND captoes.

    I didn't want to tip my hand. I'll probably be going with the latter rather than the former.

    Ok so a Allen Edmond bourbon would fly? Sorry I assumed brown meant all shades. Devils in the details.

    That's a bit too brown. Bourbon and brown (as AE classifies them) would be "staple" browns. As in when you tell someone they need to start their shoe collection with some brown captoes, you're thinking of something in that range. Chestnut and walnut are pushing it (especially chestnut) and would be a judgment call on my part.
