I tried them on at the PS Boutique in SoHo, agonized over it for a week, then pulled the trigger. They'll charge you retail, plus shipping. I didn't see them on sale anywhere else.

Paul Smith Sundance. There's another lace-up model too, can't remember the name, which is a little more casual.
These all look pretty good. I particularly like the first examples. You may or may not have tried Leather Goods Connection already. They have some similar options at a similar price, and are handmade. I've had pretty good luck with LGC so far - I ordered a double d-ring belt from them a few months ago and it arrived within two weeks.
A pair of Costume National boots for $50 a while ago. Looked great, but the angle of the photos did not show how square-toed and clunky they were in real life. I ended up giving them away.

I'm convinced that bacon really isn't meat at all - it's achieved some plane of existence...
I'd be surprised if this was not a requirement that you wear what they sell at the store. I'd also be surprised if they did not offer some kind of discount so that you would be able to buy some of the merchandise, especially considering retail wages these days.

A merkin. I save that for church.
