    Don't get me wrong - I like the look. My boss is fairly laid back when it comes to a dress code, but I couldn't imagine coming to the office dressed like that.

    I often feel like people who live in NYC can get away with far more in a casual office setting than others elsewhere.

    Here in lovely San Francisco casual is being redefined by the naked Castro guys. http://blogs.sfweekly.com/thesnitch/2011/09/nude_in_castro_nudists.php

    Fortunately, they wear shoes so Alden's are still in the mix for them :)

    fantastic cigar.

    some good cigar make-ups en route...epaulet's brixton boot and unionmade will be restocking the beale blucher. not exactly the epitome of summer shoes but both excellent make ups.

    Thank you! I keep trying to look at summer shoes, but my tastes lean more toward winter.

    i'm the same way....darker rich shell colors, commando soles etc...

    getting dressed in the summer in general is just not as much fun. less opportunity for layering, ensemble building...

    I saw an earlier post recommending Meltonian suede spray. Any other recommendations for my navy PTBs?

    You have to play with color a bit more in the spring / summer...
