Have anyone tried wearing fancy socks with loafers?

Feels a little loud even for a Friday outfit..

Now that the new yishun bus interchange is in operation, anyone knows where is Mr Yamaguchi operating?
He now sits near the May Bank near the junction outside the bus interchange.

Mid 20 is not exorbitant. Maybe can get low 20 or 18 if u try heartland market area make shift stalls. Duno about the quality, so at your own risk.

Was on the fence about the replacement, as my sub $100 cemented shoe is 9 months old with mild flaking..not sure if it's worthwhile

Probably will look around cobbler st

Hi guys. Need advise for the above. Still a noob when it comes to working shoea. The above shoe has been worn for almost 2 years, Mon to Fri office job shoes, my only pair of work shoes.

It is GY Welted, with leather outer sole I think. No rubber on the exterior apart from the heel area.

I see a large crack at the front part of the sole, and some cork materials inside.

This kind of damage, how can I prevent it in future? Also, resole is out of the question? Just buy a new one better right? This shoe costs me below $300.

Seems un-repairable already, unless you want to go resole the whole things. Looks like EEA shoes, I think they provide resole for their shoe at a cost.

To prevent such things, try to rotate your shoe every day.

You really power man! It is indeed from EEA.

Guess I will buy 2 pairs this time and rotate a bit. Sticking to double monk since they are so convenient.

Do guys in SG wear dressy Chelsea boots to office, or is it more of a European thing? I have never seen anyone in my office wearing Chelsea.
