Hello all. New member and first post so please excuse my ignorance since I'm pretty much a neophyte in the area of dress shoes. My question(s) is, when would you wear a (dark) burgundy cap toe and why? The reason for my question is that I'm going to be picking up a pair of black cap toe AE Park Avenues for my suits to wear to the office and to formal events at night. I happened to see a pair of Burgundy J&M aristocrat cap toes at a great price and thought maybe I'd pick those up, too. Then I thought, "what would I wear them with and are they necessary" ? It's not just the color. I'd like to have a burgundy dress shoe to add to my growing collection, but being a cap toe, and since a cap toe is an office/formal shoe, and black is considered the only color to wear in those settings, am I duplicating my efforts and would you guys pass on this shoe? Let me emphasize that it is a DARK burgundy. Your advise is much appreciated.
