Make sure you have your other shoes in line before going off the deep end with a boot like this. Joe's main page post has a few boots that would better serve you in the office environment unless denim is the norm.
    I already have allen edmonds daltons, red wings, and a tan chelsea boot. I like taft shoes as they are extremely comfortable. and yes, denim is the norm.

    A coworker was wearing those shoes at my current job and i really liked them, so ive had my eye on them for a while

    If you have the option for brown, I'd go for that. This looks black to me which feels more formal. Brown looks great with age and dresses up and down the spectrum when needed.

    Summer Friday suede loafers

    Hey guys, I have a "coffee date" with a very senior exec at a major Manhattan print publishing place on Friday morning. It's casual but in that Manhattan magazine type way.

    I plan on wearing a subtle grey check jacket I bought for this purpose, along with blue Bonobos khakis. I think I would like to buy a pair of suede loafers in gray to go with this - and wear them sockless.

    I am a bigger guy, so I think a more stable less dainty looking shoe would look best. I love drivers but think they may be a little bit casual for this environment, but it is "just" a coffee date. I want to look pulled together but in a sort of easy way.

    Does anyone have options on Trask loafers in particular?

    I have found Jodphurs odd when on the feet. They crease weird and just don't feel totally secure. I am a fan of Chelsea's though.

    Does Bonobos ever have > 20% sales? Need to pick up a couple of items from there and not sure how long to wait.

    Hi all, new to the forum and new to worrying about my look.

    So, to cut to the chase, I was buying a cheap suit (j ferrar) for my new job (sales rep at cellular sales) and was getting feedback from my gf of 3 years. She really liked some shoes I was on the fence about. Those shoes...are these. Well she sold me on them.
    Now I've worn them to both interviews and got the job. Matter of fact my regional manager complimented my attire as it does fit well. Though I doubt he saw the shoes and the more I look at them the more I hate them. From "go buy some oxford cap toe shoes" to "it's not that bad" how bad is it? My first day is tomorrow.

    Can anybody recognize this shirt or where it might have come from?
