    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I am building up my wardrobe and I am trying to do this on a reasonable budget... My next purchase is a pair of casual shoes. I currently own a pair of AE Park Ave in black, and a pair of grenson's captoes in mid brown....

    I am considering a pair of driving shoes... I like the Too Boot ones. Is this a practical purchase. I am also considering a pair of Alden penny loafers. I don't mind spending money on shoes, but I have to make sure my purchases are wise.

    I would love to hear people suggestions. I will be wearing these mostly at business school and out in the evenings afterward. My budget is around 300ish

    thanks

    it seems you can't go wrong with your choices.

    I'm not sure I'd consider driving shoes a real "core" purchase. It would be lower down on my list (unless you can get them for 30 bucks from J. Crew).

    How about some dark-brown bluchers instead? More casual than the PAs, in a color you don't have. The right ones could be dressed up or down.

    Cole Haan makes a reasonable priced driving shoe.
