    The Park last is not a narrow one in the toe area, at first, unless you have a very wide feet, it is not recommendable to upsize from your regular size.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the update, will email you as I haven't got mine yet.

    Just out of curiosity did you rename copper to gold on the website, in terms of belts?

    Dark brown museums look great too :)

    Hey guys,

    has anyone ordered Meermin with Norvegese stitching? What do you think about it? Is it worth an extra expense?

    Meermin sent me a pic of these black balmoral boots with dainite sole that they currently have in stock:

    Could I wear them to a job interview in a CBD environment, or would I come off as too much of a dandy?

    I wish I could say yes, as I love black bal boots - However, boots in general are seen as bit of no-no in some business environments in my experience, even though they are nicer than 99 per cent of the squared-toed Ecoos other people wear.

    Those are perfectly fine for a job interview or 90% of formal situations. Pants will come down over the majority of the upper half and black cap toe calf is pretty damn formal.

    In convention and theory the answer would be no but in practise I think it depends on your location. Some places are more observant and have expectations like not wearing boots in a cbd setting in Australia, NZ and other places whilst it might be a styleforum no no, you could wear those without anyone thinking anything other than a nice pair of shoes.

    What do you guys base these opinions on? Seems to me these are just personal hunches.

    Yep, it depends on the business culture.

    ^ I'll accept that.

    I feel at least in the Nordics one can put those on for any job interview. I mean people wear these in the banking industry for crying out loud.

    Most of times people don't care what shoes you are wearing as long as they are somewhat formal. However, I would not take the chance of those few who would think you were weird for wearing boots to an interview; this is not the point to distract focus away from the presentation of yourself to what you are wearing; I don't even wear a pocket square during my interviews.

    Thanks for your opinions, guys. I've been told what was appropriate and not for an interview suit in my work environment, but boots vs shoes never came up. What's confusing is that the mentors telling me what is appropriate wear suits that don't fit and square toes shoes haha.

    Anyways, in my work culture tie bars and pocket squares may be too flashy, so I will assume boots are too.

    However, this is only for the interview itself; after you have been hired they are fully okay IMO.

    Aren't balmoral boots traditionally more formal than oxfords? A punch toe in black seems pretty good to me.Only thing is the country calf upper but I don't think it's that big of a deal since they shouldn't see that they are boots unless they pay very close attention when you are sitting down.

    Ah, yeah that's what I thought, but was curious if this was accepted standard in some CBD workplaces. Seems like bal boots could either be ultra formal or eccentric, depending on who's looking.

    There is a septieme largeur pair without the county calf upper I am looking at also. If I can't find a good pair of regular oxfords that fit (I have the dreaded normal forefoot, low volume, small heel syndrome) I may take my chances with the bal boot.
