    Depends on your definition of "dress". I'd were these with trousers and sport coat all day, everyday.

    +1. Suit, no. Business casual, absolutely -- though the lighter color will keep it from achieving the level of dressiness that a darker color would.

    Honestly pretty much any shoe carmina makes passes for business casual.

    I was thinking sport coat and flannel trousers. Looking at these as something similar to the Vass split toe bluchers from NMWA. I think those work with a sport coat and trousers for sure. Would these fall along the same lines at all or strictly jeans and chinos?

    ^^^For Illustrative purposes only.

    It is a 270 degree welt that is dressy in nature. [​IMG]

    The heel is nailed on as opposed to stitched.

    USPS is killing me.

    Missed Skoak package delivery yesterday, went to post office with the postman notice (stating it was at said post office) today, and they could not find the package. Now i have a case number, and the promise to call me when (if) they find it. Maybe this is a sign that EG is not for me... :fu:
