Casual: To Which I Have Become Accustomed
I don't often get lucky, but I snapped up these Allen-Edmonds wingtips for $40 when they appeared on eBay. They are in excellent shape. eBay is actually pretty solid if you know what you're looking for. They let you sort your results much more usefully than, say, Bluefly, which gives short shrift indeed to menswear wearers. You can even save your various clothing sizes to make searching easier.
The eBay entry said these were brown, but I think they're more burgundy. Regardless, they look resplendent against denim and probably a navy suit. I will experiment soon.
Worn with APC New Standard unrolled and the Dexter kill shirt, actually an American Apparel henley in Melange Olive. Because when you're reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on a wintry night, some awesome shoes inexpensively had help keep the chill away.
