@mkarim: I have black AE monks already. Also, I have a some ferragamos in more or less the burgundy/dark brown color with a strap. I have to admit that the BB you posted do look good.
@cioni2k: thanks for the suggestions. Any stores in NYC maybe will have those VE derbies?
Also, what do you guys think about RM william boots? Good for daily wear? Okay to go out in?
