BTW - The shoe color I was trying to think of is camel. Love camel colored shoes.
Though those sweaters are way too overpriced, if I have to take anything away from Barneys, I'm mulling this one

I have a dress pants which is of somewhat identical colour. This would look good with it They have some really, really cool sock designs.

Agreed, with the right suit or pants/shirt combo this can be a great color shoe.
Yes! Love them.

You will not believe this, folks, I fished out an amazing Johnston Murphy deal at Lord & Taylor this evening.

49 bucks.

I saw it priced 225 bucks on their official website months ago. I'm a shoe geek, my memory power works well with memorizing the design, coz I wet my pants on shoes very often

I'm pretty proud of myself tonight.

I've owned those boots for the past two years now and you won't believe how many compliments you get. Just be aware, they are very heavy and don't come with sole inserts. Modeled after the WWII boots Red Wing provided for the US military.

Oh, I've owned these for six months now. Best boots I have ever owned, apart from my old Corcoran Jump Boots.

My brother has come down. We went to the city today to hunt for bargains. Both of us found a pair of such dress shoes from some Italian maker with a weird name and they were sold discounted way down from the regular price in a going out of sale plus holiday deal.

Paid about 200 apiece. Great shoes and incredible deal. It looks simply awesome. Can't wait to show it off when the new year comes It makes a resounding tuk tuk noise when walking.

I'll post the whole package when I am wearing them when office opens in a week, like I did with the socks and shoes, earlier in this thread.

I've been hunting for a beige coloured suit, and appropriate socks. And on the first day I'm wearing them to the office, I'll take a few snaps

This is one of the sweaters I picked up off Macy's, on sale cheap and not bad. The shirt's a good one though, but I didn't bother pressing it on this terrible winter morning
