    Just because I play with my dick a lot doesn't mean I'll be wearing a dick hoodie.

    So, I narrowed down my choices and am leaning towards #2 (derby half brogue in brown), I need something very versatile, in good taste, but not standoffish:

    I like both, but prefer the first.

    #1 cuz shell. Also cuz wingtip bluchers would work best with your wardrobe imo.

    Half brogue with open lacing is odd

    I like #1, but actually because of the last, which if I’m guessing isn’t F. Would look good in F too. NMWA had some F last wingtips in brown calf that looked good.

    I find that oxblood color much more versatile than you would think. It pairs well with blues, blacks, greys and earth tones.

    I think you'll find the budapesters (#1) to be the most versatile. Are those shell? I prefer calf - I like the ones at NMWA with the pebble grain calf and commando sole. Some people love shell, but I prefer it on boots or derbies to dress shoes. In general, that kind of wingtip derby is easier to dress down than a cap toe. That third option with the museum calf isn't to my taste at all.

    You have to like the color. It pairs well with grey especially and black. It pairs well with some blues, lighter ones imo. It's something a little different.
