I'm happy to wear anything from a plain toe oxford to plain toe derbies with a suit. I think you'll find very few places in Australia where it would make much of a difference. That said, I think you'll find the last shape, welt style, and material affects what you can get away with much more than the style of the shoe itself. Longwings on a sleek last in black are going to be a lot easier to get away with than a cap toe oxford in ruby cordovan, for instance.
