 They're the Caine model. They were on 6pm.com (Zappos' sister site) a year and a half ago.  They had patent leather only (the shoe comes in patent and in calfskin) and I bought that at first, but decided I liked calf better but couldn't find it.  Finally, it popped up on Amazon in a few limited sizes in calf (including my size) and they were something like $220 (retail at $395).  I used a 20% off coupon and got them down to just under 200 bucks.
 Those designs are atrocious.  The Sprata is exceptionally ugly.
 I'm with you here.  For as infrequent as I need a black cap-toe shoe (or similar), it would make no sense for me to buy a pair of PAs, really.  My Johnston & Murphy Meltons I got in used-but-awesome condition on ebay for $30 do the trick perfectly, and the price was great. To be fair, though, I splurged a bit on a pair of black plain toe shoes by To Boot New York for my wedding to wear with my tux:   I got them for >50% off, though, which was nice.  And I prefer their...
 I interviewed for residencies a few years ago (in Dermatology) and wore either my navy or charcoal suit to interviews.  This was before I had a great collection of AE shoes, and most of mine at that time were much too casual for suits.  That said, I wore burgundy Johnston & Murphy Meltons (cap toe balmoral) with my navy suit, and black Meltons with my charcoal suit.  Worked out well for me.  Never wore wingtips to an interview, though.  Not sure how to advise you on that...
 I'm not ashamed to admit I like them, especially in brown and in blue.  Certainly one of AE's better attempts at casual summer wear, in my opinion.
 Honestly you may want to check beforehand with the program coordinators for each program and inquire about the typical dress (or, at the very very least, find out where you'll be going and look them up online to get an idea of the standard dress).  When I was interviewing for residency (in a field that tends to be known for well-dressed or flashy-dressing people), there was a pretty wide variety of dress and it also varied greatly depending on venue. As a general comment,...
 I also own the dark chocolate Daltons and love them.  They're super comfortable and look great. My first (and only other) AE boot was actually the tan Eagle County (seconds for $129).  The sole is ridiculously comfortable and makes them feel like a sneaker.
 So many dadjeans/pants on here.  Seems like people really like their 'classic/loose fit" pants.
 Disgusting. Those combos look terrible.
