after spending some days in a "cabin in the woods" in Czechia, where we neither had phone or internet,
I was able to pick up some nice new pairs of dress shoes at a source, that I didn't know about before.
The Naot Outlet store in Selb (Porcellain City). Between overly conservative stuff the also had those:
The Naot Baron, which is a nice fit with Jeans and a Sports Jacket.
They describe the upper material as "italian leather", which I can't relate to, but I can tell you they
use high quality thick Napa leather, indeed.
I was so pleased with the shop, that I purchased another, more conventional pair, also:
They are a little wide for my liking, but as I don't have to 'heel and toe' an italian sportscar anymore, they'll suit
me fine on workdays in the office.
I am not young enough to know everything.
