    Ask her about the "Woman's Generation" forum. She's probably a member.

    Anyone who does not have a plain pair of black cap toes, has a gaping hole in their shoe collection.

    Redirect back to coats, I think I want the Barbour McQueen coat.

    I have three black cap toes, but I also wear black shoes a couple times a month. One pair for rainy/snowy trips to the courthouse, a pair on the Forest last and another pair on the Rain last because I wanted both.

    With the American flag patch and interior? a bit aggressive. I like the rest of the jacket.

    I have that gaping hole and know it should be filled, but I just don't like black shoes (currently only own DM). Keeping my eyes open for a pair on sale since I won't get any gratification out of the purchase.

    Jungle Boogie: I had those same black captoes on yesterday. Love them. They're a MTO and not generally available , so if Steve has your size and you want them, I would act.

    More mmmmmmmmmmm.....
    Two of my only legit dress shoes. (Both C&J Hallams)
    Maybe it is because I wear suits and CBD-ly, these black shoes are no problem for me.

    Well, at least you have a pair of black shoes in the rotation. But serious, there are a few classic looks that just need black shoes. Navy suit, white shirt, black or PoW tie, black cap toe shoes. I love that look. Cant imagine not being able to rock that at will.

    @in stitches I think you will be happier with the Belstaff a few years from now. You may tire of the flag stuff on the Barbour.
