A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

Casual day today. New shoes:

EDIT: The picture perspective makes it look like I'm wearing a skirt, or at least huge, billowy pants. I'm not.

Do you wear a narrow size? I like the colors together.

It's getting a little cool here for walnut colored shoes, but I'm pleased to be wearing my #8 boots again.

Quality wise... the leather isn't that bad. I tried a pair of really nice looking mocha chukkas as well from Stafford, those things were very hard. One really good step in them, and they micro-creased immediately across the cap. You could tell the leather was like raw hide because the crease looked like the leather flaked off.

The leather on these boots did not do that, the inside is pretty comfortable, and the shoe itself is very lightweight. I have to chuckle at the fact that these boots were pre laced, Euro straight lace! haha... idk why but i just got a kick of of that... JCPenney stepping up their fashion lol.
Those look good!

Brand/model info?

Thanks! I have narrow feet, but these are just regular-width shoes. They look even more narrow because they are so long (size 12).

I can get away with walnut-colored shoes year-round here. My Macneils are a bit darker, and I expect that these loafers will darken a bit once I polish them.

Anyone able to weigh in on applying a topy vs. heel/toe taps on leather soled shoes/boots? Any recommendations as to where to get it done? There are a few cobblers around, but I'm not sure of how to gauge the quality of a place.

Edit: I guess walnut shoes aren't acceptable in fall and winter? I'm planning on wearing my new walnut boots during those seasons, and I don't see them as being out of place since they're boots, I guess.

I'm not sure what the "rule" might be on that, but I don't really care.

Also: dwass is in Chicago, where he has to walk uphill both ways through the snow. So lighter-colored boots might not be such a good idea from a stain/discoloration standpoint.

1. I prefer Topy over taps as I don't like leather soles in local weather. If you go with taps, I'd suggest flush mounted. Any decent cobbler should be able to apply a Topy, but it's okay to ask to see their work. If you look them up on Yelp, disregard people who complain about price. They're the ones who go in with $40 shoes and raise hell over a $20 service.

As for the color, I generally consider walnut to be a three season color. But I'd wear a walnut boot in a more temperate climate in winter. Just not where I actually live.

Winter no, but fall, IMO absolutely.

I'm headed off to court this morning. So I'm in my navy suit, Macneils, white spread-collar french-cuff shirt, and a striped tie. Then I'll be wildly overdressed for the rest of my work day, which I plan on ending by about noon (I have lunch with a client, but I'm not counting that).

I got those Mykita sunglasses delivered yesterday that I posted about a while back. I've had a few different pairs of nice sunglasses before, but these are on a whole other level. Ridiculously light and comfortable to the point you forget you're wearing them.

highly recommended for anyone looking for a new pair of sunglasses

Keep it simple. Allow yourself a white linen square and nothing else for at least a year.

Since we're slated to get more rain in the next 3 days than we've had in the past 6 months, I put on my Bayfields this morning with some khaki's from BR and a button down. A little less "fall like" compared to the flannel slacks that I paired with the Bayfields a few weeks back.

Happy to have some rain, though

I've heard of it, but I've never been willing to fly across the country to go to a seminar. We're pretty lucky in that CA is the largest legal market in the US, so we get plenty of top-notch training available right here.

I am a certified specialist in trusts and estates, so I have to go to a lot of extra training to complete my continuing education requirements.

Really? I only own linen and I've found it to be extremely useful.
