    Thank you, gentlemen, for your well-considered (if conflicting) opinions. The jury is still out as to whether or not I will acquire the shoes, though currently, with a European trip on the horizon, fiscal probity may win over my magpie-like impulse for shiny things (and yes, Howard, the shoes are indeed very shiny).

    With the change in temperature promised for the metropolitan NYC area, I hope to be back to wearing "real clothes", rather than cords, sweaters, a puffer jacket, and hiking boots tomorrow. We shall see.

    The weather is back to a normal range of temperatures here in NYC, and the roads are clear enough to brave them in proper shoes, so I'm back in a suit.

    like the ensemble today, just glad it's getting warmer in the next few days.

    Upr, I'm sure I've seen it before, but for some reason don't remember it - that overcoat is outstanding (it fits you really well, too).

    Most of the metro New York area is glad that it's getting warmer!

    Thanks. This coat I bought at a end of season clearance sale several years back, and it's a good medium-weight overcoat - suitable for very cool but not frigid weather. I traveled with it to Budapest and London last fall, and depending on the weather reports, may take it with me to Madrid and London next month.

    Louche certainly is a good descriptor for those shoes. One thing I couldn't figure out is are they dark blue or black? Honestly, you could wear those with black tie and do quite well. I like the the last/shape and I am a fan of monks. It's a bit different but bending the rules has it's moments. Moreover, unless you have a tuxedo with skinny trousers most people won't even notice you are wearing monks. And unless it is a AAAC forum event most won't care. I think if they fit well and are comfortable and you want an alternative shoe for black tie go for it.

    Thank you, JBierly. For the record, the shoes are black, and, as stated before, the jury is out as to whether they will be bought or not, but I value your opinion, in any case.

    Midweek, and a bit colder in NYC than yesterday, though not the Arctic blast we had from last week. Still, a good day to wear flannel and camel's hair . . .

    Cufflinks - Tyrwhitt
    Pocket square - Robert Talbott
