      I like the flexibility of wearing between work and after work. They can be all business all day, then pair them with jeans, a shirt and a casual blazer, then you are set for any after hours activity.

        I use this pair of shoes for casual and dress wear. The shoes are distinctive and good looking. I wear them weekly and enjoy the comfort and look. The two different shoe strings give the shoe two different looks.

                    • Q:

                      Does the shoe have an elongated toebox? I am looking for a shoe that is not so long at the toe. For instance, I have the Tyndall Wingtips and the toe box is too long for my tastes. How does this compare? Thanks for your help!

                        A:

                        This shoe is not going to be as long of a toebox as the wingtips. The rounded toe will create less of an elongation, unlike our wingtip style shoes.

                      I usually buy 11.5 C size in J&M shoes. Why does this come in 11.5M only? I am assuming the M width is a wider width.
