    Murica!?!?!?! :crackup:

    As far as I know split toe shoes are not much of a staple here - but perhaps I'm wrong.

    I also have trouble with black shoes unless it's with a suit. Own a couple pairs, but low, low mileage.

    Monkstraps
    Trousers with turn ups

    I don't wear sandals - even in warm weather - and they are popular here - I never found them comfortable.. not like I have fungus on my feet, either

    This, this, one thousand times this!

    If I'm to be frank, I also have a hard time with Oxfords. Never found them comfortable, I generally much prefer "dressy" boots and will only wear Oxfords when absolutely necessary.

    Crew neck sweaters just remind me of a sweatshirt.
