    These things are so damn nice. Thank you for listing them at an unbeatable price, plus including the box and shoes. Amazing bargain for all of us.

    Would that type of cap toe be deemed less formal?

    Hmm ... good question that I'd like the answer to as well. I don't need to suit up at work but I wear SC/shirt/tie/dress pants so they definitely won't look out of place with that.

    And I have some nice black cap toe shoes for formal things such as job interviews and weddings, too.

    I would say that the gimped edges certainly detracts from the formality but not necessarily the shape.

    If that`s a black shoe, I`d say that the V shape gives this a modern look. But for anything other than the most formal wear, it gives a nice new touch.

    So, All other things equal (black shoe vs black shoe or brown shoe vs brown shoe) it's not significantly less formal due to the modified cap toe?

    I would say not significantly, more formal than any brogues, but losses only slightly to a conservative straight captoe (with no gimping)...
