Is this shoes quality decent? Just that itís not GYW. As I would need a pair in less than 3 weeks and MTO at CustomMade and EEA need more than 6 weeks.
Buy from carousell

Are loakes durable? Might go for Dr Martens for the durability instead even though the different looks.

Best you have a look at the models and styles. Loakes are Goodyear welted while Martens are bonded, only the upper are stitched onto a PVC welt.

Other factors you may want to consider are:

1) Leather - natural vs pigmented vs corrected
2) Shape of shoes for aesthetics and comfort purposes
3) Your wearing behaviours and preferences (the rubber outsole of Martens is pretty comfortable).

Is there a thread on good looking good feeling socks?

The trashy cheap ones I have keep getting holes in them after a few wears, stretch out ridiculously and doesn't look good.

Good looking and good feeling is subjective.

Some suggestions

For igent, luxurious feel wool socks - Bresciani
For quirky designs - happy socks, paul smith, ASOS, Mr Porter

I think holes are unavoidable keeping wearing pattern, foot care and socks care constant. I doubt quality/cost can significantly prolong the "sock life" so to speak.

Gold Toe or Viccel socks. The latter has synthetics blended into them but are supremely hardy, the latter luxurious in feel.

Hi guys. Need your help. I am looking to buy a formal dress shoe ( oxford brown colour ) . I seldom wear them, usually just for weddings etc. Is pedro / aldo a good fit for my budget? Looking for something around $100

Pedro and Aldo are not recommended because they use corrected grain leather and cemented construction, so they flake over time with or without frequent use, sole separation are also common.

If you donít mind used shoes, there are classic looking ones in Goodyear welted construction and full grain leather to be had on Carousell at your budget or with a slight top up. Some are almost new because people simply bought the wrong size online. Can search LLYR, CNES, Loake, Meermin, Ed Et Al at this price point.
