I am new here and I just want to thank everyone for posting. I came across lots of good info, tips and ideas on this website. After reading many threads, I still have some questions. My new job's office dress code is "business casual." In the field, suits are required occasionally, depending on clients. Since I am very tall, I have a hard time finding anything that fits. I wanted to ask you guys for opinions about shoes. Coats and ties are not required for office days, but button down shirts are. Originally, I intended on getting 2 pairs of decent shoes that I could wear all the time. I narrowed the choices down to AE PAs (come in 16s) and JM Meltons (come in 16s). I was looking to get a black pair and a burgundy or darker brown pair. I doubt that I'll be able to find many used pairs because of my size, so I'd probably have to pay retail (a very common scenario). I have somewhat limited budget, but I don't mind buying a good quality. I would wear dress pants and dress shirts to work. 1. Would either pair be an overkill for the business casual days (more than 2/3 of the time)? 2. Would it make more sense to buy more expensive (hopefully better quality) PAs in dark brown/merlot and to get less expensive Meltons in black? (to avoid getting two more expensive pairs and perhaps get another pair for office days only). 3. What other shoes could I wear on office days w/o standing out too much (no pan intended)? I realize that I shouldn't wear the same pair back to back. Thank you guys very much.
