Which black shoes does the well dressed man need, or at least need to consider? I'm a person who doesn't generally like black shoes. I hate the very idea of black wingtips - shortwings, longwings, or any other wings you can conceive. I like browns, and I like burgundy, but in spite of the fact that I have what I think is a SF approved dislike of black shoes, I think we all need some in the closet. The cap toe oxford seems almost obligatory. There are few shoes I think I would actually rather have in black than something else, but what are the shoe styles that either SHOULD be black, or that work particularly well in black. In short, which styles should be black, even in the wardrobe of those of us who prefer brown? Pics are, of course, welcome, even desired. I'd feel obligated to start the thread with some, or even one, but frankly, I have no black shoe pics to share. If I had, perhaps I wouldn't be starting this thread.
