    I just picked up a pair of these Magli by Bruno Magli shoes at Nordstrom Rack last night. They were very comfortable, so comfortable that I'm thinking about picking up another pair to alternate them daily. However, I'm not sure if they are acceptable to wear with a suit for daily work use. Any advice would be welcomed. Thanks again.

    That depends on your geography, industry and role within the company. I don't like them that much to be honest. Not knowing either of the earlier mentioned characteristics, I guess yes you can wear them to work with a suit to work.

    On a related note: Can you be sure they are still comfortable in 6 / 12 month? And do you want to always wear the same shoes to work?

    I'm in downtown San Francisco's Financial District that has a business casual environment. I'm planning on the suit with no tie look and I'm in middle management. Good advice on if they will feel comfortable in 6 months. I guess I have that Nordstrom Rack mentality to stock up on good things as they might not be around in a few months.

    Don't like them... I have a pair of Brungomaglis, but they're wingtips and look way better.

    However, I can contest that they are one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn.

    I think they look pretty awful and bluchers with suits are frowned upon here (not necessarily elsewhere in the real world).

    That said, they are poorly constructed items that I would have avoided, but I guess its your call.
