If you want to look like everyone else get Cole Haan

I’d stick to Allen Edmonds among the ones you listed. Johnston & Murphy’s are a good choice as well (I’d avoid Cole Haan - they look cheap)

I’d avoid any of those athletic/dress crossover shoes. Allen Edmonds and similar true dress shoes are quite comfortable once broken in.

Depends on how the last fits, but I recommend Allen Edmonds or Alden, if you like a more American style; Cheaney or C& J for that classic, English look. Goodyear welted shoes are just more comfortable, because the shank and cork provide great arch support.

What's the big hype with MBB? Fairly new to US work life, I'm an ML Engineer (technical client facing role at KPMG). I got recruiters reach out on LinkedIn on behalf of 2 of the 3 acronyms and the roles seemed to be mostly focused on PowerPoint decks creation. I don't have an MBA which I understand it's a prerequisite for hiring in these groups, though I have a PhD in Machine Learning from a big technical school in the US. Is it worth pursuing such exits, friends?
