I think they are good and slightly thicker than Corgi (more dress socks). Yes from onlybrown.

Check out the votta no show socks, like them a lot.

40 wears (9 months) is good mileage already
I try my best to make them last heh. Think i'll get some of those no-show socks too, uniqlo ones always slip out and go under the feet. Thanks for your advice!

Hi friends would you recommend brown or black leather shoe for job interviews? Tech roles, might try for banks/start ups. Would dark brown considered too casual? Also, cap toe, plain toe? (Also wholecut is so nice but I get that it’s not appropriate)

thanks in advance!!

Dark brown is the most versatile colour!

No one look at shoes for tech roles wear anything that is not loud and you will be fine

Depend on your hirer. Stick to black to be safe.

In the spirit of the sartorial slant of this thread I would advise against black. While commonly accepted in the local workplace, I doubt that is OP's intent.

To be honest, buy the colour you like and likely to wear again. Interviewer will not really care abt the colour of your shoes.

He might. He may one of the ones who frequent this forum.
But seriously, black is most versatile.

Black definitely a must have and probably the first pair one should have. But hardly the most versatile.

You may be right. But for work (especially office based work environments), you can hardly go wrong with black.

Once you get the job can invest into more colors. Dun just stop at a pair buy a lot of pairs.

Ah. Thanks everyone for the feedback Decided to go with brown because I too feel that ppl don’t put so much attention to shoes for tech roles. Cheers

Cheers.good choice with brown. Time has changed, ppl longer see black as a necessity.

I am working in a shirt n tie environment and I don't have a single pair of black pants or shoes :S

Definitely no intention of getting one as well
