    Glad you like it and appreciate the kind words.

    Most of my opportunities to wear something nicer than the daily camo pajamas entails an opportunity to peacock if even just a little bit. Yeah I've got the usual suspects in terms of navy and charcoal suits, fairly formal j crew crosby legacy blazer in navy, etc.....but when we're going out for a fancy dinner, or up to the Jazz Age Lawn Party, or even an embassy black tie event here and there, there's always a chance to add some flair. Always a time and place for formality and going low-key and still looking good (friend getting married in July and if work allows the foreign travel, I'll be going straight up navy suit and black PAs), and I adhere when necessary. But what's life without a little flair eh? She seems to enjoy it too, and ultimately that's the real audience.

    Obliged. AE Broadstreets. Shame they moved away from them.

    That night was Anniversary Dinner at Chops. Forgot to get a snap before dinner, so pardon the leftovers. The banana cream pie was farking enormous and after a 32-ounce tomahawk ribeye, a man can only put so much in his bellah. Also it rained so there's moisture.

    Thanks for the input. If I do anything it'll probably come down to which is most versatile with the pant shades that I typically wear. Even though two are labeled as 'Snuff', all three appear to be slightly different colors. Got a while to think about it I guess.

    Two other contenders:

    https://www.carminashoemaker.us/mens...co-suede-80406
    Those are the ones. I bought mine in the 300s as these are usually included in various sales.

    I chose these because they were derbies vs the closed lacing of the other alternatives. The first ones you linked always bothered me because the swooping line on the side of the shoe. It probably looks ok in person but in the pictures it almost looks like piping so I didn’t temp it. The second pair was in contention because it is not as formal looking as an Oxford closed laced shoe. I like the style but just went derby over oxford. Also these were included in the sale so worth waiting if you like these. It helps also to look whether you want tobacco vs. snuff. To me they look pretty close, though polo suede looks more red but not one of your shoe choices.

    You can’t go wrong really.
