Aight y'all, this is baby's first step into the real world shoe wise.
Coming from off the rack Jordan's and boat shoes.
I was told that I should shop around for some wingtip oxfords with either full or quarter brouge and found these.
They've got vera cuoio on the bottom and are made in Italy (which I was told is a good thing).
Tell me whether or not I'm retarded and just wasted $50 (sent in a best offer).
I just want to be properly dressed.
>i want to be properly dressed
Unless youre a business man and actually make money and youre attractive you will never look good going out like that. You have to look good to pull off that kind of look, if youre buying those shoes obviously youre none of those things

I'm not ugly/tasteless senpai, just young.
Almost everything I own is either gap or mainline ralph lauren; pleb tier I know but it's not mom jeans and silk yugio shirts at least.
I'm just trying to move up from Sperry's.
>he fell for the menswear meme
I'm new to /fa/ familia, there's no meme to fall for.
I've dressed like this for a couple years and now that I'm in university I figured I better step up and start putting together clothes I could wear to a formal that were Mocc toe and blazer-y.
that weren't mocc toe or blazer-y*****
There was a thread yesterday with a dozen or so people saying that non-brogued were trash.
Help me understand, with a non-partisan viewpoint, the differences between all of these types/manufacturers and the culture/ideas attached to each.
I'm lost in a sea of memey anecdotes and unsubstantiated opinions.
it all depends what youre going to wear them with.
I only wear dress shoes when I wear a suit so I go for the patent leather oxfords as theyre the most formal.
wingtips are just more casual and id rather wear a nice boot or something than crappy dress shoes.
Lurk /fa/, dont make threads like this, find a personal style, dont try to dress "classy" in college no one will really give a shit. Just find your style that works for you and work with it
Broguing makes the shoe more casual.
Never wear non brogued unless you're wearing a suit.
If you're going to wear these shoes casually with like chinos or jeans (I'm not too fond of the jeans look but w/e), without a doubt get brogues.
you're trying to learn which is good, but you're on /fa/, so you're in the wrong place to do it. you need to understand that the average /fa/ poster is 17, they're not more worldly than you, they don't know their shit. find places where you can actually see some kind of credentials because this place has retards like me in it who will give shit advice for a laugh
