    Hi, i'm having a prom after 2 month and i'm having trouble choosing an oxford toe cap. At first i ordered an oxford and pocket square from ASOS and i still couldn't find my package, so the worse thing that can happen is that i couldn't get my package but i will still get my refund. Now, i'm not sure if i should spend some money to purchase a quality Oxford shoes around $200 because i'm pretty sure i won't use the shoes so often and i'm going to college next year. Also, for my first pocket square do i go for a simple white color?

    Thank you.
    My outfit
    Tailored Navy suit
    White dress shirt with french cuff
    Black bow tie
    Orient bambino watch

    I still tjink you should get yourself a good pair of black oxford shoe since they are timeless and will come in handy in future.

    I will suggest you to have a look in benchgrade Crockett & Jones and/or Scotchgrain. Both are slightly above budget but they have good price/value ratio.

    what do u think about shoes around 200-400$ like AE, meermin, paul evans? I think they are good starter for a student.

    They're more than good enough for a student.

    Also, a watch isn't recommended, for that traditionally is not part of formal wear.
