    How important is it to have a pair of these in your wardrobe? I don't have any brown shoes that are just plain captoes. Trying to figure out if it'd add anything to what I have.

    What do you have already? What shade of brown is the question based on?

    I have in brown:

    2 colors of strands (Walnut and Dark Brown Shell)
    2 whole cuts in different shades (Chilli and Dark Brown)
    1 long wing (Dark Brown)
    1 Wingtip (Walnut)
    1 Double Monk (Dark Brown)
    1 Apron Toe (Merlot)


    I'd be looking at an inbetween color between walnut and dark.

    They are nice but not important. The only important business shoe is a pair of black shoes, eveything else is fun and variety, imo

    Yeah I would strongly advise the OP to get a pair of black shoes. While the SF dominant view seems to be that brown is the best for suits, I also think most would acknowledge that at least one pair (or even two) of black shoes is an essential component to a business shoe wardrobe.

    I may be confusing you with someone else, but are you the guy who has bought all (or most of these shoes) in the past six weeks?

    Perhaps a pair in suede would fill this void?
