I read in some string that you believe the only shoes needed are Alden penny loafers and tassels. I agree! That is all I own. Shell cord. pennies, and the British tassels in black and cordovan.
I do get some slack about not wearing any lace-ups for business. eg-cap toes, etc. I used to wear them but always felt better in the tassel loafers. (If more formal eg a meeting or interview I see nothing wrong with the black tassel and a navy suit.) Do you agree? I just don't like wing tips or cap toes nearly as much. Period. Seems like you feel the same way.
Also, curious about your choice of slacks to wear for business casual and with blazers. Do you go with plain front? What brands?
