    My Ferragamo and Prada loafers got the most compliments.

    The laced shoes and monks get no love. (Cept for my personal deep tissue Renovateur massage therapy I give it every week.)

    Pocketsquareguy,
    Is the triple monk visible when you are standing?
    Regardless, the chestnut color combined with brogueing (even if just captoe) is a clear standout for the masses.


    It depends upon the amount of break in my pants.

    Yeah, most complimented is when I breakout the ferragamo bit loafers.

    For sf approved shoes, most complimented is barker black arch dale.

    Never anything on my EGs, Vass or any non 348 C&J.

    Imagine those except loafers. Cost me $20 at Dillards. Get a ridiculous amount of comments on them. Entire range of little boys to old women. Young and old, men and women, everyone loves them.

    I mean yeah they are ok, but no idea why everyone likes them so much. My "outfit" that I wear with them are some green cargos and a black tshirt.

    Yet again, it appears longwings in chestnut will get you compliments.
    Brogues seem to be the most bang for your buck!

    My vintage Florsheim Imperials get the most love. They have a lot of "character." So much that they need repair at the moment. [​IMG]

    A pair of loafers in tan ... from Lobb, Paris.

    However the women usually compliment my Belgians or my Stubbs & Wootton slippers ... both of which I'll only wear at home or on the boat.
