    I should start by admitting that, with the exception of a pair of black cap toes for funerals and other officious occasions, I don't really need any dress shoes at all. But I still want a well-rounded shoe wardrobe for its own sake.

    Please take a look at what I've got and tell me what you'd recommend for my next purchases.

    Black Shoes:

    Lower left: C&J Westbourne
    Lower right: Johnston & Murphy cap toe blucher (This pair is either going to be re-dyed or replaced very soon.)



    Casual Shoes:

    Brown calf skin loafers

    Dress boot (calf) - dark brown or burgundy

    light brown/snuff suede anything

    have you considered something in shell? seems it could serve you well for more casual purposes.

    I was going to post some monk straps but unsure if you are considering a pair?

    For the sake of all that's Holy, please burn those Sperrys.

    Burn them by setting fire to the Stacy Adams first and then throwing both pairs into a fireplace together.

    Don't discount the possibility that he may be saving them for a future prison sentence.

    What about Barker Blacks? Quality is not too bad and they are quite a lot of fun to wear?

    Honestly, Thread's shoes seem too skewed to oxfords for a teacher.

    More derbies. Next one or three should be a PTB, wingtip, or longwing blucher. Brown.

    In fact, I think that he should try Vass, maybe a PTB on the 3636.
