I am considering brogues, but am unsure. Please suggest things to me because I am a useless person.
or those gay things that phil(wrightylew) and his gay friends wear. i dunno what they are but they're really gay. you'll probably love them.
I am going to purchase a pair of those in the future, but I would never wear them with a suit, because that would look gay unless you had one of these modern, too-tight "david tennant" suits, which is gay in itself.
or that's how it looks, i don't know, i obviously wouldn't understand i'm just a girl i like dresses and cardigans and "ballet pumps".
shoes a paedophile would wear
I have David Tennant's mobile number.
forget it, i'm going to bed. i just took my 'meds' and i don't want to pass out on the sofa.
I actually do genuinely have his mobile number... sort of.
He is down as Dave Ross. Truth.
whats the matter with them?
to shout brogues, when i only saw the title heading
it must be fate.
go get some brogues.
why has everything got a massive fucking point now days
anyone else noticed this?
like your foot only gets halfway down the shoe?
i dunno, these kids with their nintendo and tic tacs.
they look utterley stupid. I'm subracted from the world of people in suits and it freaked me out when i went london a few months back all these guys with anti terror weapons in there shoes!
cos i'm shit with even vaguely technical stuff when it comes to shoes/clothes. But yeah, they're what i wear with a suit and i've never been fired and stuff
that it's for my end of school leavers dance thing, so I must look swish as I fall out with my friends, vomit whiskey all over the teacher I fancy then try and get a cab home at 11:30.
and vomit - sounds like a winning night!
(edit: i just realised those are girls shoes. so definitely don't get them.)
get some plain black ones.
not toooooo bad, but if you have a conscience you should follow in the footsteps of your idol (me) and not buy leather. however these come with two pairs of free socks. TWO PAIRS!
If I had a a shoe shop, I'd call it Shoe Shoe.
Probably because there are 2 a's in each of my names and I am extremely conceited.
but more expensive. i'm also checking vegetarian shoes for you, i wasn't sure how far your vegetarianism stretches but i hoped as far as mine!
and are stupidly expensive. go figure.
But this time I am going to buy second hand from my local vintage outlet, which almost makes it ok. Almost.
they're the only smart shoes boys should wear. None of that boot stuff...
Oxfords if it's formal. Why is everyone bigging up brogues all of a sudden? Is this an 'indie' thing?
"most basic smart shoe"
they always look smart. Don't know why, that's just the way it is. Okay?
But yeah, also it's an 'indie' thing ;-)
But they are less formal than Oxfords, thats all.
These are the ultimate formal shoe for black tie: http://www.blacktieguide.com/Classic_Components/Footwear/brooks_brothers_pump.gif
Do you sort out female smart clothing and accessories problems as well?Because I may have one coming up later this year....
colour is your suit?
I'm going to pick it up today. Woosh.
next do some reasonably decent and inexpensive shoes.
they're quite nice. they have some silly detailing on them, but you don't see that, and they aren't leather, but they look different and they're cheap and they're impossibly comfortable. like, really, really, really, really comfortable.
and some tramp shoes
They only look good with a kilt.
Otherwise PLAIN black leather shoes. Nice and smooth leather.
Just go to Clark's and get a nice simple, inexpensive pair.
I assume all users are male unless they prove otherwise, though.
I mean, if you're out on the town then that's what brogues are for, but they're still kind of ugly.
But at work it just screams "MY JOB IS REALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE I WEAR A SUIT. I WEAR A SUIT, DON'T YOU SEE? I AM IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT, IMPORTANT! I AM THE CLOTHES I WEAR! MY SUIT IS EXPENSIVE, AS IS MY SHIRT!"
... to believe anyone is so alternative and coutner coulture that they dont even know how to buy a pair of f*cking shoes.
