    cole haan suede wingtip on sale for $129:

    two birds...one stone?


    I have heard a lot of good things about Floresheims. I actually almost ending up buying them myself last year when I was in the market for a wing tip but ended up finding a pair of Cole Haan Jayhawkers for $150 (about 50% off) right around the holidays. The extra $50 or so was very, very well worth it to me.


    A lot of gents here are very big fans of the Allan Edmonds wingtips though they are around $200 on sale. Check out the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post. Again, probably a very good investment at that price.

    Bass makes a good pair of bucks for around $50, check out DSW.


    As far as wingtips go...in my opinion, I think it might be worth it to spend a little more if you can. For such a staple item that will get heavy wearing, I think trying to find something on sale at around $150 might be a good option.


    While a little bit out of your price range, I am a huge fan of Cole Haan, they do have a lot of style on sale right now as well.


    As far as a color for bucks goes, it really depends on what you are wearing them with. A light tan is very versatile but something like a navy might be more interesting and nearly as versatile, especially if you are investing in a brown pair of wingtips. You also might consider a light gray.

    Wow, thanks guys. As I'm looking through these, any input on what would be a good color for the bucks/oxfords? I plan on getting the wingtips in brown. My shoe collection is just starting out.

    It depends on your style, you can go black and brown for starters as they are the most common shoe building colours. $100 or less...try endless.com or shoebuy.com when they have sales etc.


    Belts...google, so many options: slidebelts.com if you don't want holes, otherwise go to winners/ross/kohl etc and buy a reversible to save some money.

    Help me pick out two pairs of shoes



    I need some new pairs, badly. As in I wear Clark Desert Boots pretty much daily, badly. I would like a pair of brown leather wingtips and a pair of bucks. I would like both in a style and color that goes with jeans, chinos, and can be dressed up. Suggestions? Bucks I was thinking gray? Also, bonus points for links to matching belts. Looking to spend around $100 or less on each pair of shoes. Thanks guys.

Working...
